American Axle & Manufacturing has been named sole supplier of front and rear pickup axles for production at GM’s Oshawa, Canada, facility. Oshawa will restart production of the pickup trucks later this year. AAM’s manufacturing facilities will provide both front and rear axles for use at Oshawa. This new business is in addition to AAM’s current supply of front and rear axles to GM’s full-size pickup assembly facilities in Indiana, Michigan and Mexico.
“This additional sourcing continues to leverage AAM’s strategic partnership with GM, having supported their full-size light truck program with durable, efficient and lightweight drivelines for many decades,” said David C. Dauch, AAM Chairman and CEO. “This is a critical part of our business and integral to our two-pronged approach to support both internal combustion and battery electric/hybrid vehicles with the industry’s leading driveline technology.”
