Meritor Aims for Expansion with Fabco Buy

September 05, 2017

Meritor has acquired the product portfolio and related technologies of Fabco Holdings and its subsidiaries under undisclosed terms.

Fabco’s suite of products will expand Meritor’s portfolio of complementary products, including transfer cases, specialty gear boxes, auxiliary transmissions and power take off units for medium-, heavy- and extra-heavy vehicles and for on- and off-highway, construction, defense, rail, and other industrial applications. These products are available to both original equipment and aftermarket customers.

In addition to expanding Meritor’s global ability to offer complementary products, the acquisitiion will also help the company diversify its customer base and expand into the rail, oil, and gas industries not currently served by Meritor.

"Acquiring this suite of products and technologies provides Meritor with new products and customers in important markets that we expect will contribute to significant growth in our specialty, defense and off-highway business units," said Jay Craig, CEO and president. "This transaction fits well with our plan to pursue strategic growth initiatives while maintaining a balanced approach to capital allocation as part of our M2019 plan."
