Power management company Eaton has added Chalk’s Truck Parts in Houston to its North American authorised rebuilder programme, a scheme which allows local users to buy rebuilt transmissions from Eaton-approved outlets. It now has five members, all of which have access to Eaton’s warranty process and marketing support.
Chalk’s opened for business in 1957 and currently employs 60 people. Bill Fouch, product manager, aftermarket transmission products, Eaton, said the move would “expand our coverage into a strategically-important area of the country”. The other four companies in the programme are: Power Train, Indianapolis; TransAxle, New Jersey; Drivetrain Services, Illinois; and Pacific Truck in Edmonton, Alberta.
