SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (May 28, 2014) — Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp. has renamed its vehicle components division Federal-Mogul Motorparts, effective immediately.
Federal-Mogul Motorparts is a provider of premium brands, including MOOG, Fel-Pro, Champion, Wagner, ANCO and Ferodo to the global aftermarket. It provides vehicle braking, chassis and wiper components to global original equipment manufacturers.
“For more than a century, we have remained focused on providing the highest quality components across each of the product categories and regions we serve,” said Daniel Ninivaggi, CEO of Federal-Mogul Motorparts, and co-CEO of Federal-Mogul Holdings.
“Vehicle manufacturers recognize this, as our friction products are found on seven of the top 10 vehicle models in Europe, and the best-selling vehicle in North America.”
The Southfield-based automotive parts supplier designs and engineers its products with the principle that vehicle safety and product performance matter most, Mr. Ninivaggi said.
“Notwithstanding recent trends in some aftermarket categories, our unrelenting focus going forward will be to support our premium products and clearly communicate their advantages to our channel partners, professional service technicians and consumers,” he said.
Federal-Mogul Motorparts manufactures vehicle braking, chassis, sealing and other service components, and also benefits from the engine expertise of the Federal-Mogul Powertrain division.
The new Federal-Mogul Motorparts name and logo will be rolled out globally effective immediately, leading into new marketing campaigns for its product brands.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
