Clean Diesel Technologies Inc. (CDTi) has signed an agreement with a national private label for distribution of CDTi's DuraFit diesel particulate filters (DPFs), as well as secured a major fleet customer for the DPFs.
CDTi says its DuraFit DPFs are original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacements that meet or exceed OEM emissions requirements and are backed by a two-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.
Under the distribution agreement, DuraFit DPFs will be distributed into the heavy- and medium-duty vehicle aftermarket for a period of up to three years. First shipments to the national private label distributor, whose name is being withheld in accordance with the agreement, are expected to begin in the second quarter.
‘Since launching DuraFit in August of 2014, we have been aggressively pursuing the fast-growing replacement filter market with a multi-channel strategy targeting regional distribution, national distribution and fleet sales,” says Chris Harris, CDTi's president and CEO. “Through this new private label relationship, our aftermarket DPFs will now be available to several hundred retail locations across North America.”
Furthermore, CDTi has announced the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) will use the DuraFit DPFs.
The DSNY operates a sanitation fleet consisting of approximately 3,000 vehicles, including refuse collection trucks and mechanical street sweepers. Mondial Automotive, a regional distributor for CDTi, will supply DuraFit products to the DSNY fleet.
‘CDTi offers replacement DPFs for all major Class 5 to Class 8 OEM applications,’ comments Showky Kaldawy, president of Mondial Automotive. ‘To be successful, our customers require dependability, uptime and extended service life of their diesel equipment. We are confident DuraFit will meet these demands for the DSNY fleet.’
