ArvinMeritor Inc has officially opened a new 100,000-square-foot facility for Mascot Truck Parts in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, to benefit customers and operational efficiencies. The operation—which remanufactures transmissions, drive axle carriers, drivelines, and steering gears—previously consisted of three smaller, separate facilities in Mississauga.

Terry Livingston, general manager–North America for ArvinMeritor’s Commercial Vehicle Aftermarket, said, “At the center of our remanufacturing strategy are two key factors: same-day/next-day availability through strategically located distribution centers (25 for Mascot), and an all-makes portfolio that enables customers to make one phone call for their 'post engine overhaul' drivetrain needs.”

From the new operation, more than 1,200 axle carriers and transmissions are shipped monthly to customers/partners throughout North America, including five truck OEMs and a host of select authorized outlets.

Under the management direction of Glenn Hanthorn; Tony Macharacek, regional operations manager; Bill Statham, general manager; and Guido Sala, senior quality manager, the business unit has increased its production capacity for axle carriers and transmissions by roughly 20 percent due to the consolidation, while lean initiatives introduced at the facility allow more space for further growth.

Doug Wolma serves as general manager of the company’s remanufacturing business, part of the Commercial Vehicle Aftermarket.
