GARDEN GROVE, CA — Freudenberg-NOK, a supplier of replacement parts to the automotive aftermarket, has announced its first California distribution location to enhance service and delivery time of its TransTec power steering products to its West Coast customers.


Partnering with Stellar Automotive Group, a single-source supplier of transmission parts and fluids, Freudenberg-NOK will be able to reduce lead time on orders of TransTec brand power steering kits for customers in the region via the distribution center’s location in Garden Grove, drastically reducing fulfillment time. In addition, regional customers will see reduced shipping costs, availability of bulk parts and direct support from a local sales representative. “The high level of quality and engineered solutions of the TransTec brand is unmatched and now we’ve taken the necessary steps to ensure that our service matches that same level,” said Chris Petronella, Director of Product Development, TransTec. “By partnering with Stellar, this new distribution partnership puts our physical products closer to customers who desire our solutions but, until now, have had limited accessibility to them.”

TransTec, an aftermarket brand of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, offers the most complete line of power steering kits for domestic and import vehicles. The 6,000-square-foot warehouse that serves as Stellar’s distribution center in Garden Grove, Calif. will offer the full range of TransTec power steering kits and additional aftermarket products may be added in the future.

Regional customers looking to learn more or place orders can contact Chris Monks-Green, Sales Manager at or 949-412-9272 or Beth Gass, Customer Service Manager, at or toll free at 800-458-5487.
