The Maumee, Ohio-based powertrain supplier reported sales of $1.55 billion. This is a 4 percent decrease from the second quarter of 2015. The number of sales dropped as reduced demand in the commercial vehicle and off-highway driveline units offset gains in the light-vehicle driveline and power technologies divisions. Commercial-vehicle driveline sales plunged 19 percent year-over-year. The company is confident that this is due to weaker production in North America and weaker demand in Brazil this year. Light-vehicle driveline sales rose 4.3 percent from the year-earlier period to $669 million on strong production of light trucks. These vehicles are very popular in the US market and this is because the gas is cheaper and the economy is stronger.
