Meritor moves production facilities from Mississauga, Ontario to Plainfield, Indiana

Meritor has announced plans to move production operations at its remanufacturing plant in Mississauga, Ontario, while strengthening customer service and support for its Canadian and U.S. customers. The company recently met with employees to discuss the restructuring which will impact approximately 120 employees by March 31, 2013.

The company’s Mississauga facility remanufactures commercial truck components for the on-highway market. Operations are expected to transfer to Meritor’s Plainfield, Ind. remanufacturing facility while Mascot Canadian customer service and support moves to Meritor’s Brampton, Ontario facility.

“We are taking these actions to improve efficiencies while continuing to serve and support our Canadian customers through our facilities in Brampton; Edmonton, Alberta; Moncton, New Brunswick and Boucherville, Quebec,” said Doug Wolma, general manager, Global Aftermarket Operations.
