Powertrain Integration, Triad Services Group Form Total Vehicle Development Partnership

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., (August 15, 2012) — Powertrain Integration, LLC (PI) and Triad Services Group, Inc. (Triad) have entered into a partnership to provide total vehicle services. Through this agreement, PI and Triad will have the ability to provide services for every phase of vehicle development–from concept to production.  

Combining resources of these two companies fosters the ability to design, engineer, develop, validate and certify complete vehicle products, while leveraging OEM componentry without requiring OEM involvement.

Both PI and Triad have a long-standing relationship with General Motors. As one of GM Powertrain’s (GMPT) On-Highway integration partners, PI has access to General Motors engines, transmissions, controls systems, math data and components released in the GM parts bin and support their integration into vehicles.

“This is a unique pairing that will now open up an avenue to access OE-level parts,” said Dave Bjerke, president, Triad Services Group.

“This unprecedented agreement will open the door for fully synthesized vehicles using GM products,” said Robert Pachla, president, Powertrain Integration. “This is a great opportunity for both large- and small-scale OEM car builders to utilize highly skilled drivetrain and technical engineers and designers to create one-off or low-volume vehicles according to their own specifications.”

PI is responsible for engineering, packaging, integration and certification of GM engines and transmission products. The company serves several niche markets, including cargo delivery vehicles, motor homes, school buses and specialty vehicles, including alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles.

Triad offers a broad range of total vehicle development capabilities that can be applied to products using GM componentry, from conceptual design and prototype fabrication and assembly to vehicle validation. Triad also provides low-volume production engineering that is consistent with GM’s high-volume protocols and quality expectations.

Triad specializes in complete vehicle synthesizing, including chassis and body design engineering, electrical design and integration and data management to replicate OEM functionality.
