KYB Corp. is reorganizing its subsidiaries in North America. Effective Oct. 1, 2011, KYB America LLC and KYB Manufacturing North America Inc. will be integrated into a single entity: KYB Americas Corp.

The new company will oversee existing aftermarket sales, warehouse and distribution operations in Addison and Carol Stream, Ill., and Mira Loma, Calif. It also will continue to operate KYB’s companies in Mexico and Panama.

“The execution of this merger will establish a larger scale company to fund improved business practices, increase regional decision-making capacity and achieve greater synergies between our OEM and aftermarket businesses,” says Vice President Mike Fiorito.

The new combined organization will be headquartered in Franklin, Ind., and will serve as KYB’s main regional coordination point for KYB's remaining original equipment and replacement businesses in the Americas region.
