03/11/2020 Liebherr and Stanadyne become strategic partners
Liebherr Components and Stanadyne LLC, US manufacturer of components for diesel common rail systems, enter a strategic cooperation for the global development and production of Common Rail Systems for the On- and Off-highway market.
Fuel injection solutions from the product lines of both companies are at the heart of the agreement. The cooperation enables both partners to enlarge their range of medium- and heavy-duty applications within the commercial vehicle market. At the same time, both companies will offer even more flexibility with regard to individual engine designs. “This partnership draws on Liebherr's strengths in terms of injectors and system integration. Furthermore, we rely on decades of experience in the development and production of our own engines. This enables us to know exactly, which requirements a common rail system needs to fulfil,” explains Stefanie Gerhardt, Managing Director of the Common Rail Systems Business Unit at Liebherr. “Stanadyne, for its part, brings deep technical expertise in the development and production of high-pressure pumps, especially for medium commercial vehicles, to the partnership. This perfectly complements the existing Liebherr product portfolio,” continues Gerhardt.
“Current market trends show that more and more established businesses are withdrawing from the diesel injection technology sector. On the customers’ end, however, interest in new and upcoming developments remains high. With this cooperation we are using our opportunity to enter the on-highway market as a new supplier,” explains Dr. John Pinson, President at Stanadyne LLC. “Besides the products, this cooperation also focuses on the service and distribution network. Stanadyne and Liebherr are both international players. By bundling these two networks, we are able to provide our customers with a personal contact on site, on every continent across the world,” Pinson concludes.
