Eaton has added Houston-based Chalk’s Truck Parts to its North American Authorized Rebuilder Program, the company announced Monday at the 2018 Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) in Las Vegas.
Chalk’s, the fifth Eaton Authorized Rebuilder in North America, opened for business in 1957 and currently employs 60 people. The company’s 3.5-acre site includes a 90,000-sq.-ft. facility for parts, service and office space. Other Eaton Authorized Rebuilders are Power Train, Indianapolis; TransAxle, Cinnaminson, N.J.; Drivetrain Services, Bensonville, Ill.; and Pacific Truck, Edmonton, Alberta.
Introduced in 2013, the Eaton Authorized Rebuilder Program gives fleets and owner operators an opportunity to purchase locally rebuilt transmissions from authorized outlets which meet all of Eaton’s re-use and rebuild requirements. The authorization provides end user customers with a higher level of confidence and after-the-sale support than other rebuilders can provide, the company says.
Eaton says it will continue to strategically review its coverage and add additional outlets in underserved strategic markets. To be recognized as an Authorized Rebuilder, companies are required to complete an in depth review of their rebuilding processes, increase its technical and sales training, and achieve an annual certification of its goals for the program, the company says.
