Neapco Holdings makes the parts that get vehicles moving. It manufactures driveshafts, suspension springs, propeller shafts, aluminum die castings, and driveline components for automotive and heavy-equipment OEMs (it is a major supplier to Ford) and the aftermarket. Neapco serves the automotive, commercial vehicle, farm equipment, and construction machinery sectors. It also makes components for non-vehicular applications such as irrigation systems, mill processing equipment, and hydraulic pump drives. The Neapco name comes from New England Auto Parts Corporation, when founder D. K. Bullens established the company in 1921. Its headquarters eventually moved to Pennsylvania and then in 2011, Michigan.
Neapco Holdings operates through two main segments. Neapco Components makes propshafts, driveshafts, and sideshafts for commercial, light, and off-highway vehicles, while Neapco Drivelines makes propshafts and driveshafts primarily for light vehicles.
The company has about 10 manufacturing and distribution centers located in California, Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Canada, China, Germany, Mexico, and Poland. It opened its office in China (Beijing) in 2011 in order to serve as a springboard for serving customers in the Asia/Pacific region and establish a significant manufacturing presence there. – less
