More than a quarter of newly formed ArvinMeritor's sales will come from Europe after US suppliers Meritor and Arvin finalize their merger at the end of July.
Announced last week, the merger will create the world's 11th largest automotive parts supplier, and the largest supplier of light vehicle suspension systems and exhaust components.
The deal will also allow Meritor to move into the corner wheel module market with the addition of Arvin's shock absorber business.
ArvinMeritor's biggest customer will be DaimlerChrysler.
Corporate headquarters will be located in Troy, Michigan, USA.
The new firm will employ 36,500 people in 25 countries from 121 manufacturing locations.
Meritor Chairman and CEO Larry Yost will assume the same role at the merged company. Arvin Chairman and CEO Bill Hunt will be ARvinMeritor's vice chairman and president.
