Dana Incorporated (Formerly Dana Holding Corporation)

Company Profile




3939 Technology Drive, Maumee, OH 43537, USA

Business Overview

-The Company is a leading global manufacturer of power-conveyance and energy-management solutions. It develops and supplies drive and motion products, sealing solutions, thermal management technologies, fluid power products and electrification products for the light vehicle, commercial vehicle and off-highway vehicle markets.

-The Company has four operating segments:

  • Light Vehicle Drive Systems (Light Vehicle)
  • Commercial Vehicle Drive and Motion Systems (Commercial Vehicle)
  • Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems (Off-Highway)
  • Power Technologies

-Starting in 2014, the Company had generally increased its capital expenditure in preparation for new programs awarded to the Company. This trend continued until 2018 as production for the new programs began. The COVID-19 pandemic then drove capital expenditure as a percentage of sales downward for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 due to global automotive production shutdowns. Since then, the Company’s capital expenditures have increased both in the fiscal years ending December 31, 2021 and 2022. The Company expects that its capital expenditure in the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023 will be approximately 5.0% of sales, continuing the trend of increasing investment since the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
