LAS VEGAS ArvinMeritor announced that it will offer multiple logistics services to customers through a new business segment called Meritor Aftermarket Services.
Through this new business segment, the company plans to address customers’ needs for value-added warehousing and distribution facets of the third-party logistics marketplace. Meritor Aftermarket Services, which will launch initially in the North American market, will be an important addition to the company’s existing Aftermarket and Trailer business, the company noted.
“This is an important step in our aftermarket evolution,” said Joe Mejaly, president of ArvinMeritor’s Aftermarket and Trailer business. “We will now offer companies in the industrial and commercial vehicle markets the opportunity to leverage our recognized strengths in material planning, quality, packaging, distribution and value-added services globally.”
“This new segment creates the opportunity for us to become a major player in the global third-party logistics marketplace,” said Craig Cartmill, general manager, Worldwide Aftermarket Operations for ArvinMeritor. “We are uniquely positioned to use our strong North American presence and brand recognition to launch this business segment. And, as we continue to develop our global infrastructure, we will be prepared for additional business opportunities and expansion in the third-party logistics marketplace,” said Cartmill.
Tim Bauer has been appointed director of business development for the new segment and will lead the global market strategy implementation. Bauer has been with ArvinMeritor for 20 years. Paul Nyers, who also has extensive
management experience at ArvinMeritor, has been appointed sales manager. Both will be supported by the global aftermarket operations team.
