With the goal of offering total-vehicle services, Powertrain Integration LLC and Triad Services Group have entered into a partnership. The two companies, both of Madison Heights, MI, say they will now have the combined resources to design, engineer, develop, validate, and certify complete vehicle products, while leveraging OEM componentry without requiring OEM involvement. Both PI and Triad have a long-standing relationship with General Motors. As one of GM Powertrain’s On-Highway integration partners, PI has access to GM engines, transmissions, controls systems, math data, and components released in the GM parts bin and supports their integration into vehicles. PI employs 25 engineers, and Triad currently has 72 designers, engineers, and highly skilled technicians.
