Tenneco announced it is launching ride control business on the all-new 2013 Ford Escape.
Beginning this month, Tenneco will supply front struts and rear monotube shocks for the Escape platform, which will be produced at Ford’s Louisville assembly plant.
Production of the rear shocks for the all-new 2013 Ford Escape will take place at Tenneco’s manufacturing facility in Owen Sound, Ontario, while the struts will be manufactured at the company’s Celaya, Mexico, operation.
“We’re proud of our partnership with Ford and our collaborative efforts to develop ride control solutions designed specifically for the capabilities of this all-new vehicle,” said Neal Yanos, Tenneco executive vice president, North America. “We look forward to further supporting Ford with our advanced technology, engineering application capabilities and a global engineering and manufacturing footprint that allows us to meet their ride control needs worldwide.”
Tenneco is a strategic global supplier to Ford Motor Company, providing emissions and ride control components for a number of the company’s passenger cars, as well as light and medium-duty trucks.
