ABSTRACT
The article presents a panel discussion involving several truck equipment industry executives. According to Terry Keating, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Accuride Corporation, pressure in the industry is going to force the new consolidated customers to design more of their components to be more uniform across their various chassis. Vertical integration is its own form of consolidation, but it is only one method of integration, says Jim Sweetnam, president of Eaton's Truck Group.
