DRiV is going to spin from Tenneco later this year

DRiV is the name of the future aftermarket and ride performance company that will launch in the second half of this year, following Tenneco separation into two independent companies. Once it spins, DRiV will serve as a multi-line, multi-brand aftermarket supplier and also as an original equipment (OE) ride performance and braking supplier to aftermarket, light vehicle, and commercial vehicle customers. The headquarters will be in the greater Chicago area.

Brian Kesseler (in the picture below), Co-CEO at Tenneco and future chairman and CEO at DRiV, said: «DRiV, a more than $6 billion start-up, comes from the combination of the strengths of Tenneco, Federal-Mogul and Öhlins. Our global scale, our stable of well-respected and enduring aftermarket brands and our longtime partnerships with the world’s leading original equipment manufacturers give us a significant competitive advantage. We are strategically positioned to capitalize on secular trends such as the expansion of vehicles in operation globally, as well as growth in intelligent suspension, new mobility models and the evolution of autonomous driving».
