Sonnax Debuts Remanufactured Valve Bodies

Sonnax Industries is pleased to announce the full integration of remanufactured valve bodies into its product line offerings. Valve bodies are now conveniently listed alongside transmission parts at www.sonnax.com, and are available from distributors under the same part numbers previously used by Valve Body Xpress (VBX).

Following the August 2014 acquisition of VBX, Sonnax worked hand-in-hand with the VBX team to successfully combine the resources of the two companies. Customers and distributor partners can rely on the same people and relationships they’ve come to trust, while enjoying the benefits of increasingly streamlined product development, manufacturing and technical support. The New Jersey facility remains the base of operations for the entire line of 200-plus remanufactured valve bodies, every one fully refurbished with Sonnax parts and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

“We’ve not only retained the VBX employees, we’ve grown,” said Tim LaCerra, Sonnax vice president of remanufacturing and VBX founder. “Becoming part of the Sonnax family has been a great opportunity to bring more people on board and take on new challenges.”

The groundbreaking new 48RE converted valve body developed by Sonnax is a prime example of this successful partnership. Close collaboration between the company’s transmission specialists and remanufacturing technicians led to the patent-pending technology that converts early-model RE Chrysler cores to 48REs. 

“When Sonnax acquired VBX, an expected benefit was the synergies and new discoveries we could make together,” said Sonnax President & CEO Tommy Harmon. “It was the hands-on remanufacturing expertise of our New Jersey team that enabled us to provide the aftermarket with an innovative solution to the 48RE valve body shortage.”

Whether a shop chooses to make repairs on the bench or save time and money with a rebuilt valve body, Sonnax is committed to offering time-tested, industry-trusted solutions to fit every job. Find product information, technical resources and easy ways to connect with Sonnax at www.sonnax.com.
