American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (AAM) today announced that it will continue its role as driveline supplier for the next generation of GM's full-size trucks.
AAM's sales of driveline components relating to GM's full-size pick-ups and SUVs represent more than half of AAM's annual sales.
While GM has not yet finalized product definitions and other pertinent engineering details, AAM expects the scope and magnitude of AAM's role on the successor program to be substantially the same as on the existing program.
"We are extremely pleased that General Motors has recognized AAM's exceptional capabilities in the design, engineering, testing, validation and manufacturing of premier driveline systems and selected us for this critical program," said AAM's Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Richard E. Dauch. "AAM's continued emphasis on product innovation, superior engineering and design, as well as world-class quality, warranty, delivery, and launch performance is attracting significant new business in our expanding global market. Our worldwide team is dedicated to the application of AAM's expertise in these areas to further develop high-efficiency axle technology for this and other new customer programs."
