Eaton Corp. says it is realigning its heavy-duty transmission division into two distinct business units — one for what it terms performance and vocational transmission products and the other for what it calls automated and fleet transmission products.

“Each business unit will be responsible for its own products throughout their life cycle, from inception to design, manufacture, installation and field use,” explained George Nguyen, vp & gm for the heavy-duty transmission division. “This provides a clearer view of our transmission product line's ‘value streams’, and will enhance our growth opportunities and speed our response to urgent customer needs.”

Dave Bennett has been named general manager of the performance and vocational transmission products business unit, responsible for Eaton Fuller 13-, 15-, 18- speeds and “LL” deep reduction boxes.

Curt Hutchins has been named general manager for the automated and fleet transmission products business unit, responsible for Eaton Fuller 7-, 9- and 10-speed “RT”, “FR”, and Lightning transmissions, as well as AutoShift and UltraShift automated transmissions.
