Stanadyne, BYC Announce Global Diesel Common Rail Alliance
By pdamon24 January 2017
Stanadyne, global fuel injection systems developer based in Windsor, Conn., and BYC (ASIMCO Tianwei) a fuel injection systems developer based in Beijing, China, announced the formation of a strategic alliance to bring diesel common rail (DCR) fuel systems to the global market.
Both companies, which specialize in elements of DCR fuel systems, will blend their respective expertise to create complete, co-branded fuel systems for engine makers seeking to utilize the newest diesel technology. Stanadyne will lead the pump design and advanced manufacturing practices for the alliance, while BYC will focus on injector design, electronic control units and systems integration, the companies said.
“BYC and Stanadyne possess complementary core competencies that will make it easier for engine makers in our target markets to adopt diesel common rail technology quickly,” said David Galuska, Stanadyne CEO. “Bringing our organizations together enables us to jointly produce complete DCR systems that feature best-of-breed components and help customers meet the aggressive emission regulation requirements with purpose-built technology to handle harsh fuels.”
The Stanadyne-BYC alliance will offer a systems portfolio for a range of diesel engines up to 600 kW. The alliance aims to provide DCR systems that are made specifically customer needs. “Our alliance will specialize in working directly with engine makers to customize systems for their specific engine platforms,” said Daniel Liu, general manager of BYC. “The design of the Stanadyne-BYC system features a flexible open architecture, which allows us to easily adapt and integrate a system to meet customer needs.”
Many of the world’s diesel engine manufacturers use DCR technology to meet emission regulations in their markets. With upcoming regulatory changes in China, demand is growing for China-domestic suppliers that can deliver DCR systems and integration services to meet new emission standards, the companies said.
“This alliance is of great strategic importance to us. We are unified in our commitment to growth and to bringing high technology jobs to China,” said Mr. Jian Jianxun, chairman of the board BYC.
While both Stanadyne and BYC have a strong design and manufacturing footprint in China, this agreement will bring DCR systems to the global market.
“Stanadyne has design and manufacturing capabilities in every major region, Galuska said. “Our combined manufacturing footprint enables us to serve customers where they operate, anywhere in the world.”
