CARDONE Meets Aftermarket Electronic Power Steering Demand

CARDONE Meets Aftermarket Electronic Power Steering Demand

Fuel efficiency was a primary driving force behind the market shift from hydraulic to electric power steering nearly a decade ago. Anticipating the growth in demand, CARDONE launched EPS in 2016 with the Ford Fusion, which remains the top seller.


CARDONE Industries has unveiled an expanded product line of remanufactured electronic power steering (EPS) solutions designed to meet the impending tidal wave of demand as more automotive manufacturers transition from hydraulic power steering to EPS.

“The EPS market is an exciting space, especially with over 80 percent of all vehicles produced in 2018 using EPS. We’re witnessing the pendulum shift right before our eyes,” said Anders Moeller, senior vice president, new markets and innovation. “With more EPS applications, the aftermarket is presented with both challenges and opportunities, and CARDONE is definitely leaning in to the opportunities to support our customers.”

Fuel efficiency was a primary driving force behind the market shift from hydraulic to electric power steering nearly a decade ago. Anticipating the growth in demand, CARDONE launched EPS in 2016 with the Ford Fusion, which remains the top seller. Since then, CARDONE has added more than 40 additional EPS products. CARDONE’s current focus is Rack-Assist EPS but intends to expand with more Column-Assist and Electro-Hydraulic-Assist technologies in 2019.

“2019 will be a big year for EPS. Seven to 10 years is typically when vehicles start showing signs of needing repair and the 2010 models and newer are coming up on needing support,” said Moeller. “CARDONE will be that support. We are committed to the future of EPS and have an entire electronics team that’s incredibly skilled and knowledgeable in this field.”
