WARRENVILLE, Ill. — Navistar has purchased Continental Diesel Systems, enabling it to manufacture key fuel injection components for its own MaxxForce engines.
The company will be operated independently under the new name Pure Power Technologies, Navistar has announced. Navistar says the move allows it to further vertically integrate research and development, engineering and manufacturing capabilities in producing its engines and emissions control systems.
“Pure Power Technologies allows Navistar to seamlessly integrate development and production of our power system component technology as we continue to grow globally,” said Daniel C. Ustian, Navistar chairman, president and chief executive officer. “This supports our industry leadership strategy to produce great products and will serve as a components technology incubator for Navistar’s MaxxForce brand engines.”
Pure Power Technologies will operate in Columbia, S.C. where it will operate a research and development centre and nearby manufacturing plant.
“Housing our advanced manufacturing technology team near the R&D campus will be a key differentiator for Pure Power Technologies. This will enhance our ability to quickly bring new technologies to market,” said Eric Tech, president, Navistar Engine Group.
