Federal-Mogul Motorparts to Show-case Premium Products and Leading Brands at Automechanika 2014
Kontich, August 21 2014 Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML), will be present at Automechanika in Frankfurt, Germany from the 16th till 20th September in hall 3.0, stand D.51. The company will give details about Federal-Mogul Motorparts strategies, and its industry-leading technologies such as Nüral® Elastothermic® lightweight pistons, Ferodo®’s zero copper Eco-Friction™ brake pads and Glyco® lead-free bearings. Federal-Mogul will also provide details of its recent acquisition of Honeywell’s Friction Material business.
“Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ ongoing strategy is to reinforce our position as a multi-brand provider and service specialist. The Motorparts name provides an opportunity to create our own distinct identity, both within and outside of Federal-Mogul,” said Olivier Legrand, Vice-President Aftermarket, Federal-Mogul Motorparts EMEA. “Federal-Mogul Motorparts will continue to offer a high-level of service to the aftermarket with training, technical and marketing support, while still providing the OE-quality products developed by the Powertrain side of the business. During Automechanika, we will feature a garage workshop corner at our booth that will illustrate Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ service offerings with examples of tailor-made training and technical support solutions.”
Federal-Mogul will showcase its new Nüral Elastothermic® pistons range at the booth. The lightweight gasoline piston features an improved cooling gallery design, enabling downsized engines to run at higher power levels and compression ratios, with low NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness), providing outstanding durability and vehicle performance.
Federal-Mogul Motorparts is listed in Automechanika’s “Green Directory” with Ferodo’s Eco-friction brake pads. Federal-Mogul Motorparts is the first supplier to meet European vehicle makers’ requirements of zero-copper brake pads. “These environmentally-friendly brake pads were launched simultaneously in the aftermarket and as original equipment on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class earlier this year,” said Legrand.
In the area of lead-free friction bearings, Federal-Mogul Motorparts will present its extensive product range offerings from the Glyco brand, available for OE and aftermarket applications. The lead-free bearing materials are suitable for both gasoline and diesel engines, under a broad range of load cycles. Federal-Mogul Motorparts is the only company to offer a comprehensive portfolio of lead-free bearing products to the aftermarket, having anticipated the trend away from lead in advance of legislative requirements, which became effective in 2011.
Federal-Mogul will also outline details on the acquisition and integration of the Honeywell Friction Materials business in terms of “go-to market” approach. The company successfully completed its acquisition of certain business assets of the Friction Materials business on July 11, 2014.
Visitors to the Federal-Mogul Motorparts booth will learn about a wide array of dedicated aftermarket solutions on Payen® sealing products, MOOG® steering and suspension parts, Wagner® brake products and BERU ignition systems, as well as Champion® spark plugs, wipers and filters.
