Federal-Mogul renames components division
Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp. announced that the company’s Vehicle Components division will be renamed Federal-Mogul Motorparts.
Federal-Mogul Motorparts is a provider of premium brands, including MOOG, Fel-Pro, Champion, Wagner, ANCO and Ferodo, to the global aftermarket. Federal-Mogul Motorparts also provides high-quality vehicle braking, chassis and wiper components to global original equipment manufacturers, the company notes.
“For more than a century, we have remained focused on providing the highest quality components across each of the product categories and regions we serve. Vehicle manufacturers recognize this, as our friction products are found on seven of the top 10 vehicle models in Europe, and the best-selling vehicle in North America,” said Daniel Ninivaggi, CEO of Federal-Mogul Motorparts, and co-CEO of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp.
“Our aftermarket products are designed and engineered around the principle that vehicle safety and product performance matter most. Federal-Mogul’s premium brands are synonymous with quality, which will continue to be the way we differentiate our products from others available in the market.”
Ninivaggi said notwithstanding recent trends in some aftermarket categories, the company’s focus going forward will be to support its premium products and clearly communicate their advantages to channel partners, professional service technicians and consumers.
Federal-Mogul Motorparts manufactures vehicle braking, chassis, sealing and other service components, and also benefits from the engine expertise of the Federal-Mogul Powertrain division.
The new Federal-Mogul Motorparts name and logo will be rolled out globally effective immediately, leading into new marketing campaigns for its product brands.
