RANDYS Worldwide®, a leading supplier, manufacturer and distributor of performance and OE replacement driveline parts for domestic cars, SUVs, and light duty pickup trucks, has acquired Zumbrota Bearing and Gear® (ZBAG).
With 30 plus years in the automotive aftermarket, ZBAG will be joining the RANDYS family of business units, including Yukon Gear & Axle®, USA Standard Gear®, and Diff Wizard®.
ZBAG’s core business in remanufactured transfer cases, differentials, manual transmissions and related component parts complements RANDYS offerings to provide installers, wholesalers and consumers with a wide selection of driveline parts to complete the undercar. ZBAG, based in Minnesota, ships products nationwide for rebuilding and repair of light and medium duty vehicles. Cascade Component Parts Inc., a distributor of OE and aftermarket components, owned by ZBAG, also becomes part of the RANDYS family of brands.
“With two incredible performance and OE replacement brands and the Diff Wizard search portal under the RANDYS banner, we are excited to add Zumbrota Bearing and Gear to our family of driveline products. With the recent launch of Yukon Performance and USA Standard OE replacement driveshafts, we are now poised to be a more complete undercar leader in all driveline parts,” says Kevin Kaestner, President & CEO, RANDYS Worldwide. “Our interest in ZBAG stems from their commitment to providing quality remanufactured units and replacement products. These product offerings, supported by amazing customer service and technical industry expertise, will continue to build RANDYS Worldwide as a leader in undercar driveline products.”
RANDYS Worldwide launched a series of new products in 2016 including OE replacement and performance drive shafts and complete housing assemblies to further extend their footprint in the undercar category. With the acquisition of Zumbrota and Cascade, RANDYS now adds additional product coverage for transfer cases and manual transmissions to enhance their alignment with installer and performance automotive customers.
