Sonnax Hosts Annual TASC Force Meeting

The Sonnax TASC Force recently got together for its annual meeting to discuss new product needs for the market. The meeting was held May 18-19 at the Sonnax New Jersey facility and the Warwick Rittenhouse Square Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. In attendance were 29 TASC members, representing 17 shops from six different countries.  

The meeting kicked off with a tour of Sonnax following a briefing by plant manager Mark Spaseff and remanufactured valve body product line manager Maura Stafford.  The tour focused on six major stations in the plant: receiving, core prep, reaming, building, testing and shipping. The re-occurring topic heard at all stations was the Sonnax commitment to safety, quality, delivery and continuous improvement. “We have been working hard to improve our products and service and are very excited to share our process improvements with the TASC Force,” said Spaseff.

After the tour, the group returned to the hotel where they were welcomed by Sonnax Transmission Company president Steve Boyer.  Boyer thanked everyone for attending the meeting and expressed his excitement to be there as he’s heard so much about what TASC means to Sonnax, and how it affects the new product development needs of the industry.

Meeting topics included new product suggestions, Sonnax quality, and industry trends that the automatic transmission aftermarket is facing today.

This year, more than 90 new product ideas were submitted, of which the group then votes on based on their importance to rebuilding today’s transmissions. Sonnax Vice President of product line management Steve Jaussaud noted the progress that his team has made; nine out of the 15 TASC picks from previous meetings are now available from Sonnax, and the other six are currently in development for future release.

A highlight of the TASC meeting is always the Friday night dinner where members have the opportunity to get together to discuss business and reminisce about meetings past. This year was especially notable when Steve Boyer presented former president and CEO Tommy Harmon with a framed Sonnax license plate from the traveling tech van. Boyer thanked Tommy for his vision and dedication to the TASC Force, and committed to keeping the mission alive in the future.
