Inteva Products takes control of contracts of newly bought ArvinMeritor unit

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 16, 2011

After auto supplier Inteva Products LLC bought ArvinMeritor Inc.'s body systems division, it now aims to boost business with German, French, Korean and Chinese automakers.

Inteva has taken control of the former ArvinMeritor unit's contracts with Germany's BMW AG, France's Renault SA and PSA/Peugeot-Citroen SA, South Korea's Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors Corp., and SAIC Motor Corp. of China.

Inteva's product portfolio will now have ArvinMeritor's roof business, which includes sunroofs, panoramic roofs and full roof modules, and its electronics & motor systems unit, which consists of electric motors for power windows and doors.

Both product lines will be added to the two lines that Inteva is already offering: interiors (including cockpits and headliners) and closures (including latches, door modules and window regulators).

Due to its expanded product offering, Inteva mainly seeks to grow by winning more business with its current customers, according to Stefan Land, vice president and executive director of the Inteva's roof systems product line.

 In a phone interview with Automotive News Europe last week, Land said that clearly, it is seeking to expand the product lines with its existing customers, who are its “most important customers." [via autonews - sub. required]
