ArvinMeritor Inc. (ARM) Chief Executive Chip McClure reiterated his plan to completely exit auto-part production by the end of the year.
The company has attracted "a great deal of interest" for its body-system business, which produces roof and door parts for automotive vehicles, McClure said following a speech in Detroit Wednesday.
"We don't have to rush," McClure said. "I feel confident we will be on track to complete the sale."
McClure is attempting to finish the final move in his strategy to flip ArvinMeritor to a major player in the commercial truck part making sector.
ArvinMeritor has had to split its time and resources between auto- and truck-part production.
The transformation comes at a time industry analysts are expecting truck production to begin to rebound after three consecutive years of production cutbacks.
