Transtar Industries Inc., a global provider of transmission and driveline-related parts and solutions, has announced a “preferred partnership” with Schaeffler Group USA.
Although not disclosing terms, Transtar says the strengthened partnership status is based on a long-term agreement that provides a commitment to Transtar and its customers, promoting trust and good faith to the industry, as both companies further align to deliver the world-class OE quality of LuK-branded products to repair shops throughout North America.
Transtar says its executive team has been working arduously to become even more closely connected with key external business partners, particularly within the supply chain, in order to better serve the greater transmission repair community.
Neil Sethi, CEO of Transtar Industries, commented on agreement, “Transtar has worked with Schaeffler since 1986. I am extremely pleased with the new spirit of partnership that this agreement represents and I look forward to many more years of doing business together.”
“This preferred partnership agreement with Schaeffler represents a forward-thinking way of doing business,” said Kevin Rozsa, Transtar’s vice president, supply chain and international. “The more integrated and connected Transtar and our suppliers are, the better able we are to be innovative in meeting our customers’ needs.”
Urs Stuckenbruck, vice president, aftermarket U.S. and Canada, Schaeffler Group, added, “Our relationship with Transtar began over 30 years ago, and we are proud that we’ve been a partner to Transtar over this entire period. Building on this long-lasting relationship, we very much look forward to continue our excellent partnership as we work together on future projects and successes.”
