ANDERSON, Ind — Delco Remy International, Inc. has changed its corporate name to Remy International, Inc., effective August 1, 2004.
The company will continue to market certain starters and heavy-duty alternators for original equipment and aftermarket customers under the Delco Remy trademark, which is licensed to the company by General Motors. The company will also add the Remy trademark to its brand portfolio for a variety of automotive products in addition to using Remy International, Inc., as the new corporate name.
Under a separate agreement, the company continues its relationship with GM Service and Parts Operations to distribute aftermarket light-duty starters under the AC Delco brand, for the U.S. and Canada.
"This journey started with Remy Electric in 1896. Now we are going back to our roots," noted President and CEO Thomas J. Snyder. "Remy has been synonymous with great automotive products for decades. Our new strategy will offer two top trademarks, Remy and Delco Remy."
Remy headquarters and the technical center will continue in Anderson, Indiana. Administratively, there will be some changes, but operations, production and deliveries will be unaffected, according to Snyder.
