Sonnax TASC Force Meets in Omaha

The Sonnax Technical Automotive Specialties Committee (TASC) Force recently met in Omaha, Nebraska to discuss emerging market needs, ideas for new parts and other hot-button issues. Forty trusted professionals attended this important meeting, representing 15 companies from the U.S and Canada, bringing an abundance of exciting ideas for new aftermarket solutions.

In welcoming the group, Sonnax President Steve Boyer commented on the investments Marmon has made in the year since acquiring the company, specifically on inventory and human resources. “We want to make sure Sonnax has the appropriate people in place to design, produce and deliver what you need, when you need it. We are also investing in our warehouse this year so we can get parts out even faster.”

This year’s gathering included a lot of great discussion about new product ideas and opportunities as well as a tour of Certified Transmission’s Omaha-based headquarters. More than 75 new product ideas were submitted, of which the group then votes on, based on which are most critical to develop to support the industry at-large. “The depth of knowledge of this group, and their enthusiasm for helping us develop fixes for problems is truly inspiring,” said Maura Stafford, Sonnax Transmission Specialties Product Line Manager.

Independent TASC members work for large shops, small shops, volume transmission and volume valve body rebuilders. Alongside Sonnax engineers and specialists, they are helping to develop repairs which will be used by their companies and by the rest of the transmission aftermarket. Their efforts help provide answers and repairs for the entire industry. Everybody wins.
