TROY, MI — ArvinMeritor has signed a memorandum of understanding with DaimlerChrysler subsidiary Axle Alliance Co. (AAC), proposing that ArvinMeritor become the turnkey supplier in providing heavy-duty tandem rear drive axles to AAC, ultimately for Freightliner’s North American Class 8 truck assembly operations.

While the proposal is still tentative, if accepted, ArvinMeritor will partner with AAC on the design, development and assembly of heavy-duty axles from ArvinMeritor facilities in York, S.C., Monterrey, Mexico, and Asheville, N.C.

“ArvinMeritor will continue to produce its own axle designs for Freightliner, and under this announced memorandum of understanding, we will become the turnkey supplier of a new line of proprietary AAC tandem axles,” said Tom Gosnell, president of ArvinMeritor’s Commercial Vehicle Systems business group. “This incremental relationship for ArvinMeritor has opened the door for growth in our axle component supply business around the world. We’re geared up to become a much larger player, and welcome the opportunity to demonstrate our global competitiveness to DCX.”

Christof Traidl, president and CEO of Axle Alliance Co., said, “Axle Alliance Company — by partnering with ArvinMeritor — is securing a competitive launch of our product. Using ArvinMeritor’s existing resources, we will avoid redundant asset implementation and merge best practice methods from the two major axle players in the world.”
