Caterpillar Inc. last week announced it selected CleanAIR Systems of Santa Fe, N.M., as its strategic alliance partner for emission retrofit products. These products are installed into existing applications to reduce hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and diesel particulates.
“Caterpillar is a leader in machine and engine technologies, and we are pleased to align with another leader in the emissions retrofit industry,” said Bill Springer, vice president of the Marketing & Product Support Division for Caterpillar. “This is another step in our sustainability journey to position Caterpillar as a comprehensive emission solutions provider.”
The alliance encompasses CleanAIR’s proprietary technology, custom engineering capability and flexible manufacturing of diesel particulate filters, oxidation catalysts, three-way catalysts and selective catalytic-reduction catalysts. Caterpillar will provide system integration capability, engineering and marketing support, as well as assistance to enable CleanAIR to meet growing demand from Caterpillar’s customer base.
The agreement between Caterpillar and CleanAIR also allows Cat dealers to effectively meet customers’ stringent air quality requirements by offering a responsive and competitive solution. The ability to sell CleanAIR’s retrofit systems permits Cat dealers to offer products customized for specific applications, the latest in product technologies and direct access to dedicated product support.
The relationship between Caterpillar and CleanAIR Systems is part of a long-term strategy that combines the strengths of both companies, creating a formidable team to deliver cost-effective solutions to customers’ increasingly complex emissions challenges.
Peoria, Ill.-based Caterpillar Inc. had 2007 sales and revenues of $44.9 billion. It manufactures construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines.
