High-quality products and a global footprint has helped ArvinMeritor win a new business contract that calls for more than 4 million window regulator motors to be supplied annually to Hyundai Motor Company. ArvinMeritor's Body Systems business unit (within the Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) business group), will begin delivery of the New Generation Motor II in January 2010, and continue production for Hyundai through January 2017.
"This new business award is indicative of Hyundai's confidence in ArvinMeritor's body systems technology. Our competitive advantage is rooted in our global footprint that enables us to produce high-quality products in locations that are convenient to our customers all over the world," says Aziz Aghili, vice president and general manager of Body Systems for LVS, ArvinMeritor.
The New Generation Motor II offers several benefits, including an improved electromagnetic compliance design, a more robust brush card, and minimization of lower body vibration due to the improved rigidity of the gear housing — all at a reduced cost.
The New Generation Motor II will be produced in ArvinMeritor facilities located in China, India, France and the United States for delivery to Hyundai manufacturing facilities located in Korea, Europe, China, India and the United States.
