The partnership between REV Group, a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of specialty vehicles and related aftermarket parts and services, and Meritor, a global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking, and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets, will equip REV Group’s bus, fire, and specialty vehicles with Meritor’s fully dressed axle assemblies.
“This strategic partnership with REV Group positions Meritor as a supplier of choice for a growing company,” says Joe Muscedere, general manager of off highway, specialty and defense, North America for Meritor. “We look forward to continued work with the REV Group on new products and the development of future designs.”
