Dana's Spicer® Pro-40™ Light-Weight Tandem Axle Technology Selected By TMC Transportation

MAUMEE, Ohio, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Holding Corporation (NYSE: DAN) announced today that TMC Transportation, the largest privately held flatbed carrier in the United States, has specified Spicer ® Pro-40™ tandem axles on the company's order of 1,500 Peterbilt 579 on-highway trucks.

Following a standard replacement schedule, TMC Transportation will purchase 1,500 new tractors over the next two years.  The Spicer Pro-40 family of heavy-duty 40,000-pound tandem drive axles supplies a reliable, lightweight option for line haul, bulk, regional, and city delivery fleets.  It offers a dramatic weight reduction and improved power density, enabling customers to increase payload, improve fuel economy, and ultimately improve their bottom line.  The axle is nearly 100 pounds lighter than the nearest competitive axle, with a new high-strength-steel thin-wall housing on select applications.

"We need to be able to haul as much as possible in order to stay competitive in today's marketplace, and the Spicer Pro-40 axle brings major weight savings to our trucks, which matters most to us," said Rod Simon, executive vice president of maintenance at TMC Transportation. "As a highly data driven company, we're not just looking at performance; we evaluate cost-to-weight ratios and resale values of our equipment."

TMC Transportation has a successful, longstanding history with Dana products, having continually purchased PACCAR trucks with Spicer drive axles, steer axles, driveshafts, and steering shafts, as well as Bendix ® foundation brakes as standard equipment on PACCAR's Peterbilt ® and Kenworth ® class 6, 7 and 8 commercial vehicles.  Bendix foundation brakes are provided by Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake, a joint venture between Dana and Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC.

"We have a great track record with Spicer drive axles and front-end systems from Dana," Simon said. "From a durability standpoint, they've held up extremely well since they're built with longevity in mind."
