Get ready to drop "Delco" from auto parts maker Delco Remy International Inc.'s name.
Delco Remy today, July 26, is to announce that it is changing its name to Remy International Inc. The change occurs Sunday, Aug. 1.
The August date is important for two reasons. It is the 10th anniversary of when General Motors spun off the supplier.
Also, the company's 10-year license to use the Delco Remy name expires on that date.
The company will still sell starters and heavy-duty alternators with the Delco Remy brand name. Also, Remy International will continue to distribute aftermarket, light-duty starters under the AC Delco brand.
Delco Remy, of Anderson, Ind., specializes in powertrain, drivetrain and electrical products for both original equipment makers and the aftermarket.
