NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Cummins Filtration and Valvoline are teaming up to provide Air Shield-branded diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
DEF is required by EPA2010-compliant engines using selective catalytic reduction (SCR). The Air Shield product will be offered through both Cummins and Valvoline’s distribution networks beginning Apr. 1, the companies have announced.
It will be available in one- and 2.5-gallon quantities, the latter of which will come in a vented package that can be dispensed in under 30 seconds, according to the companies. The distribution of DEF is the latest initiative resulting from a partnership between Cummins and Valvoline.
“The expansion of this powerful partnership combines our operational strengths to enhance accessibility of genuine DEF technology to meet the growing needs of 2010 engine customers,” said K.C. Hall, director of business development for Cummins Filtration. “The high quality packaging expertise of Valvoline, along with their delivery and distribution capabilities, is an excellent complement and enabler to our mission of providing consistent and high quality DEF to our customers at the best possible convenience and cost.”
“We are pleased to be partnering with Cummins Filtration on DEF,” added John Noal, vice-president, international and commercial, for Valvoline. “Cummins has been supplying DEF product to the market for several years, and as an engine producer, they are also in a unique position to understand what is best for the engine and our mutual customers. Together, we form an unrivaled supply chain to provide customers with easy and convenient order fulfillment.”
