AxleTech International, a General Dynamics company that provides axles, suspensions, brake systems, and aftermarket components for heavy-duty commercial and military vehicles, opened its new world headquarters on Sept. 17 near its previous headquarters in southern Troy, MI. The new facility, which encompasses 210,000 ft2 (19,510 m2) and will be staffed by nearly 200 production and professional employees, houses the product development and manufacturing groups for AxleTech’s original-equipment and aftermarket-equipment business as well as the company’s gear and brake operations. The facility will be a global distribution center for heavy-duty commercial and military vehicle parts, with more than 30,000 parts expected to ship from there annually. The company’s assembly operation for truck trailer brakes will now be located in Troy; combined with the manufacture of OE brake systems in Troy, AxleTech’s Truck Trailer Transit brake assembly operation will provide parts and remanufacturing services for customers including operators of buses and other vehicles from municipalities across the U.S. Its new engineering and technical center will provide customers with product prototyping, testing, development, and quality assurance in one location.
