ESW Group, the manufacturer of Skyline aftermarket diesel particulate filters (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC), has opened a new production facility in Montgomeryville, Pa.
The new 40,000 sq. ft. facility is designed to produce high-quality and a high volume of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) equivalent aftermarket DPF and DOC units, the company said. Skyline products are entirely designed, validated and made in the U.S. The facility has received ISO 9001 and 14001 accreditation.
DPFs and DOCs are critical components of the emission control systems of the post-2007 diesel powered trucks and buses, and have allowed a new generation of vehicles to emit extremely low levels of diesel particulate matter emissions, the company said.
“ESW is well-positioned to succeed in the diesel emission control aftermarket business. With this new facility, ESW will continue to bring forward the latest technology at industry leading production quality and speed,” said Patrick Barge, chief executive officer of ESW Group.
The increase in production capacity will supply the growing aftermarket DPF and DOC market. More and more fleet operators and independent truckers are realizing that aftermarket DPFs and DOCs can meet or exceed OEM standards with lower cost and faster delivery, the company said.
The production facility is the result of ESW’s collaboration with a strong network of distributors around the United States.
“Thanks to these successful partnerships, ESW has enjoyed a continuously growing presence in the market,” said Adam Gross, director of Sales of ESW Group.
