Drivetrain Service Becomes Eaton Authorized Rebuilder | Construction News


Power-management company Eaton has added another North American location to its list of authorized rebuilders with the recent signing of Drivetrain Service & Components Inc., Bensenville, Ill.

Founded in 1980, Drivetrain Service has 30 employees and a 40,000-sq.-ft. office, warehouse, and shop facility in the Chicago suburb near O’Hare Airport.

Eaton’s Authorized Rebuilder program, launched in 2013, ensures fleets and independent drivers that locally built remanufactured transmissions include 100% Eaton components and meet all of Eaton’s rebuilding requirements.

Eaton says that the program provides customers with a higher level of confidence and after-sale support than other rebuilders can provide.

“Drivetrain Service has a long-standing and well-regarded reputation as a premier rebuilder in the greater Chicago area,” said Bill Fouch, Eaton's NAFTA aftermarket manager. “Now all of their current and future customers are going to see even more value with the many benefits that come with being an Eaton authorized rebuilder.”

To become an Eaton authorized rebuilder, a company must complete Eaton’s technical and sales training, meet Eaton’s re-use and rebuilding criteria, and use only Eaton content for all transmissions rebuilt as a part of the program.

“This new partnership with Eaton verifies our commitment to always providing the very best in quality products,” said Paresh Patel, president, Drivetrain Service & Components. “All of our mutual customers are sure to benefit from the additional value that we will now be bringing to the commercial truck industry and will go a long way in distinguishing us as the leading local provider of aftermarket transmissions.”

Additional Eaton authorized rebuilders include PowerTrain, Indianapolis, Ind.; TransAxle, Cinnaminson, N.J.; and Pacific Truck, Edmonton, Alberta.

Eaton provides program participants with enhanced warranty coverage and marketing support, including signage and tags for the rebuilt units, promotional materials, and advertising support.

Eaton Commercial Vehicle components are backed by Eaton’s Roadranger network of more than 180 drivetrain professionals who provide solutions, support and expertise to fleets and dealers. For more information visit
