Meritor will provide multiple drivetrain products to The Manitowoc Co. under a new strategic supply agreement. Products such as planetary axles will be included on several Grove-branded cranes.
“As the mobile crane market continues to strengthen, this agreement positions Meritor as a key supplier to support crane production under Manitowoc’s Grove brand,” said Joe Muscedere, vice president, Off Highway, Specialty & Defense, North America for Meritor. “It also reinforces our commitment to invest and expand our position in off-highway markets.”
Steve Luepke, director, Off-Highway for Meritor, said:, “Meritor’s strength in manufacturing and vertical integration supports the reduced lead times required to be successful in growing markets. The agreement between Meritor and Manitowoc extends and solidifies a mutually beneficial relationship that will have long-term impact for both companies.”
