Transmission Valves Produced
Omni-Lite's strength in the automotive area was established through the development of a
series of transmission components utilized in the transmissions of Daimler-Chrysler
automobiles. This technology has since been extrapolated to produce airbag components
for GM, Ford, and Mazda. Omni-Lite's
automated production systems are ideally suited to providing close tolerance components
in a competitive marketplace. The quality of the company's components reflects
Omni-Lite's position as one of the most highly rated suppliers with one of the lowest rejection rates
in the industry.
The opportunities for Omni-Lite's precision light-weight composite components in the
automotive industry are numerous. The company has focused its efforts on establishing
strong working relationships with major industry players, and on building a reputation for
quality components and on-time delivery. The company's success in this regard has been
demonstrated by the amount of repeat business and new and expanded contracts received from
its existing customers.
Brake, transmission, and
Management is confident that these relationships and its growing reputation will lead to
additional contracts in the automotive field as car makers strive to find alternative
components which are lighter and stronger in order to enhance both the safety and fuel
economy of their vehicles. It is estimated that several hundred pounds could be shaved off
the weight of the average car if the steel bolts were replaced by the light-weight
components manufactured by Omni-Lite.
