Recommended Posts

MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers recently recognized Dana Incorporated with its Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Award. 

The association presented the DEI Award to Dana at AAPEX in Las Vegas.

“We are honored to accept this prestigious award and thank MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers for recognizing Dana’s efforts in creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment,” said Vanesa Badillo, Dana’s senior manager, talent development, who accepted the award on behalf of Dana. “At Dana, we continuously build upon our diverse strengths. Dana’s DEI strategy aims to cultivate a strong and inclusive culture where all our people have opportunities to thrive and reach their full potential.”

To be considered for the MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers DEI award, a company must contribute to and operate in the automotive and commercial-vehicle aftermarket; have an existing internal DEI strategy and objectives in place that support the core values of DEI; have made an achievement either internally or externally to advance DEI in the aftermarket; and must be an established company of good repute and sound financial condition. 

“At Dana, we are proud to have leaders who challenge the status quo and address barriers to inclusion by reviewing and adjusting various employee and business policies and processes, such as publishing a supplier diversity policy,” Badillo added. “Dana focuses on accountability for inclusive behaviors at all levels of the organization.  This leading phase of Dana’s DEI journey has made clear governance guidelines that establish DEI objectives and address barriers to inclusion through employee management processes.”

The MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers DEI award recognizes the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in the automotive aftermarket and celebrates those individuals and organizations who champion the spirit of DEI in their organizations and communities. 

MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers created the DEI Awards in 2021. Each year at AAPEX, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers recognizes one individual from a member company and one member company who embody and advance the core values of diversity, equity and inclusion.

      link hidden, please login to view announced it will automate the company’s aftermarket products warehouse in Crossville, Tennessee, scheduled for 2025. The warehouse will be retrofitted with a AutoStore robotic storage and picking system. Encompassing a 22,000-square-foot space, the system will include approximately 24,000 storage locations. The fully automated AutoStore picking solution represents a significant leap forward in SKF’s logistics capabilities, allowing for increased efficiency and precision in order fulfillment, the company said. Innovative Technology and Strategic Consolidation
      The Crossville facility was chosen for this new technology due to its existing role as SKF’s main distribution center in the US. The location offers substantial logistical benefits as a Free Trade Zone (FTZ), according to SKF. Additionally, Crossville already accommodates the SKF Vehicle Aftermarket North America component warehouse and Kitting Center, making it an ideal location to centralize warehousing, kitting, and logistics operations under one roof, the company added.
      Anticipating Enhanced Customer Experience
      The consolidation of storage and the introduction of advanced automation technology at the Crossville warehouse will significantly improve

      Brian Cruickshank’s journey in the aftermarket industry began at Babcox Media, his first job right after college. Initially envisioned as a temporary position, his role evolved into a 29-year career that laid the foundation for his industry expertise. At Babcox, Cruickshank worked across various segments, starting as a junior editor for Underhood Service magazine. Cruickshank ultimately became the editor of Counterman Magazine and aftermarketNews, experiences that gave him comprehensive insights into the distribution market and prepared him for his current role as a Partner at Schwartz Advisors.
      Cruickshank’s engagement with the aftermarket community extends beyond his editorial roles. His involvement with Auto Care Connect, which began during his early career, has been a significant part of his professional development. This involvement continues today, with many Schwartz Advisors’ team members actively participating in Auto Care initiatives. 
      Cruickshank’s tenure at Counterman provided a front-row seat to the significant changes in distribution. He witnessed numerous major acquisitions, such as O’Reilly’s acquisition of CSK. These events were part of a broader trend of consolidation that has transformed the landscape of the aftermarket distribution sector. When Cruickshank entered the industry, he remembers more than 15 program distribution groups. This number has since dwindled due to mergers and acquisitions, illustrating the ongoing consolidation within the industry.
      Cruickshank notes that the consolidation trend shows no signs of slowing. Schwartz Advisors is deeply entrenched in the distribution sector, and firsthand experiences suggest that interest in both light vehicle and heavy-duty distributors remains strong. While the light vehicle distribution market is more mature, there’s increasing activity in the heavy truck segment. Factors driving this consolidation include the desire of founder-owned companies to either exit or find well-capitalized partners to support growth.
      Despite the ongoing consolidation, Cruickshank believes there is still a viable future for independent distributors. He anticipates that the number of distributors will continue to shrink, driven by acquisitions and interest from private equity. However, he underscores that well-run, profitable regional and local distributors will continue to have a place in the market.

      As part of the EU’s 1.4 billion euro ($1.52 billion) state aid package, BMW is the only car manufacturer to receive EU funding for a hydrogen project.
      Other companies that have received funding include tire maker Michelin Group and aircraft manufacturing and development company Airbus. The European Commission said on May 28 that the initial funding is expected to unlock an additional 3.3 billion euros in private investment.
      The Hy2Move program is the fourth round of funding related to hydrogen energy and focuses on mobility. The hydrogen energy initiative has been declared one of the key projects of common European interest and is expected to play an important role in the EU’s 2050 carbon neutrality goal. Other important projects of common European interest include semiconductors and batteries for electric vehicles.
      Details of BMW’s project and the amount of funding will be announced shortly after the scheme receives final approval and restrictions on publication of trade secrets are lifted, the commission said. BMW is one of the few companies to support hydrogen fuel cell technology and has launched a pilot fleet of hydrogen-powered X5 SUVs.

      The iX5 features a hybrid battery/fuel cell drivetrain with a total output of 401 HP (295 kW). Two 700-bar carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic hydrogen storage tanks can hold about 6 kilograms of hydrogen and travel 504 kilometers (303 miles) in WLTP conditions. For now, BMW has yet to commit to mass production of the iX5.
      Other automakers backing hydrogen include Toyota, Renault, Hyundai and Honda. Toyota makes the Mirai fuel cell sedan, and Renault says hydrogen can power the internal combustion engine in its Alpine range of sports cars.
      The “Hy2Move” project will be co-funded by Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovakia and Spain.
      A total of 11 companies plan to participate in 13 programs. The European Commission says it expects to create 3,300 jobs by 2031.
