PEORIA, Ill. — Caterpillar has established a new division to manufacture aftertreatment systems (including diesel particulate filters) for its 2007 ACERT engines.
The Cat Environmental Technologies division brings the development and manufacturing of all aftertreatment technology and products in-house, the company says. The new division is part of the Caterpillar Engine Component business unit, headed by general manager Jim Green.
“Caterpillar has the infrastructure and expertise to design and build durable aftertreatment products at a low cost – Cat Environmental Technologies will capitalize on this advantage,” Green said. “This move also provides Cat customers with seamless integration from emissions technology in the engine through the aftertreatment process.”
The company says the Cat Environmental Technologies division will strive to provide the industry’s fastest order-to-delivery capability. All its products will be supported by the Cat dealer network.
“Caterpillar’s expertise in aftertreatment technologies will allow us to provide superior value in the market,” he said. “The impact of these products will go far beyond the value benefit for customers-they will help preserve the environment for all of us.”
