Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation, recently announced the acquisition of the Beck/Arnley brand and certain associated assets. Based in Smyrna, Tenn., Beck/Arnley is a leading provider of premium OE quality parts and fluids for foreign nameplate vehicles in North America. The announcement marks a significant product line expansion that is consistent with Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ strategy to deliver the broadest range of high quality products to the global independent aftermarket.
The acquisition, which is effective immediately, adds several complementary product lines to the Federal-Mogul Motorparts product portfolio, such as Beck/Arnley fluids, engine management, cooling, electrical parts and electronic components. In addition, the acquisition adds additional foreign nameplate coverage to Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ current offerings. To ensure continued operational excellence, Beck/Arnley will maintain its own team and independent distribution organization in Smyrna.
“We welcome the employees of Beck/Arnley to the Federal-Mogul Motorparts team. With this acquisition, we’re adding a recognized and successful foreign nameplate brand to Federal-Mogul’s existing globally-recognized brand portfolio,” said Paul Stanecki, vice president, quality & aftermarket solutions, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “We’re also adding a nimble, successful organization to our own, which will help us continue to meet the needs of automotive service providers, who will now benefit from the addition of well-respected Beck/Arnley products to Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ extensive product portfolio. Federal-Mogul Motorparts also brings its research and development, engineering, global sourcing, sales and marketing capabilities to the table, which we believe will expand Beck/Arnley’s reach and presence in the market.
“Through the combination of our two organizations, our customers will now have streamlined access to OE-pedigree parts from Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ global operations, thus expanding and strengthening Beck/Arnley’s OE quality product offerings which are so critical to the foreign nameplate market,” Stanecki added.
