Power management company Eaton has brought its FLEX reman transmissions to the Canadian market for the first time. Eaton says this means dealers can now offer two tiers of the company’s reman products: standard reman transmissions with clutch housings and FLEX reman transmissions with no clutch housings. The FLEX brand includes a shipping cover and gasket that allows dealers to reuse existing housings, which should improve inventory flexibility since Eaton says the 18 FLEX part numbers represent approximately 90% of replacement transmission models sold in Canada. “FLEX eliminates the need to stock the entire portfolio of Eaton replacement transmissions yet still allows participants to maintain a healthy inventory with a wide range of available torque ratings for multiple trucking applications,” says Bill Fouch, manager, aftermarket marketing, Eaton. “Fleets also benefit from the FLEX programme’s competitive pricing and enhanced access to the many models that are available through the programme.” Same day and next day shipments will take place from Eaton distribution centres in Airdrie, Alberta; Moncton, New Brunswick; and Ottawa and Brampton, Ontario.
