A new global division is taking shape at ArvinMeritor, one that will focus on developing a variety of ride control systems for light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles worldwide.

“As previously announced with our decision to sell the Emissions Technologies business, ArvinMeritor continues to sharpen its focus on core competencies which include chassis, drivetrain and aperture systems," said chairman, CEO and president Charles G. "Chip" McClure. “By combining and leveraging our current ride control engineering, supply base and global operations, we believe we’re uniquely positioned to develop advanced vehicle stability solutions that our diverse original equipment and aftermarket customers will value.”

He said the newly-formed Ride Control business is going to play an integral part of the company’s overall vehicle stability strategy, involving the integration of design, manufacturing and distribution of light, medium and heavy-duty original equipment and replacement shock absorbers and struts. It will also incorporate segments of the Gabriel light vehicle aftermarket business ArvinMeritor retained after discontinuing its operations last year, McClure noted.

The new Ride Control division reports into the company’s Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) business group, added McClure.
