Accuride announces joint venture
Jul 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Manufacturer of commercial vehicle components Accuride Corporation has entered into two joint ventures. One is with Benecor to focus on building a dispensing infrastructure for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). The other is with the Chrome Shop Mafia to develop a line of co-branded truck accessories.
Benecor designs and develops dispensers for DEF, also known as urea. Urea is required by engines that use selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to comply with the US Environmental Protection Agency's stringent 2010 diesel engine emissions standards.
Consequently, an infrastructure needs to be in place to have easy access to the diesel exhaust fluid.
Recognizing the shear scope of meeting this challenge, the two companies have joined together to expedite the manufacturing and installation of urea storage and dispensing units at truck stops, diesel fueling stations, and fleets throughout North America, said company officials.
Meanwhile, Accuride and the Chrome Shop Mafia, which offers a full line of truck chrome and accessories and does truck modifications, will develop a line of co-branded truck customization products.
