Latest transaction intended to boost commercial vehicle industry supplier’s Blue Horizon electrification technology brand

Meritor recently acquired all the outstanding common shares of Transportation Power, which does business as TransPower.

“We are excited to welcome TransPower to the Meritor family as we continue providing our customers with sophisticated electric drivetrain solutions,” said Jay Craig, Meritor’s CEO and president. “This acquisition enables us to further position the company as a premier supplier of electrification technologies for commercial vehicles.”

The addition of TransPower’s product portfolio supports Meritor’s 2022 priorities through increased investment in next-generation technologies, and boosts the company’s Blue Horizon brand, which represents its emerging platform of advanced technologies centered around electrification, Meritor said.
