Dana Corporation today announced the realignment of its automotive systems group – the largest of the company’s four strategic business units.

The realignment evolves the group’s traditional division structure into a streamlined, cross-functional group encompassing core disciplines: manufacturing technologies; integration and assembly technologies; structural solutions; engineering; and sales and marketing.

Each will benefit from services coordinated across the business unit including quality, purchasing, information technology, and administrative support.

“We are focusing on the core disciplines that drive our businesses,” said group president Bill Carroll.

“Ultimately, the unique product and service capabilities in this group will position Dana to make the transformation from a component producer capable of supplying systems to a systems producer capable of supplying components,” Carroll added.
