By Mike Brezonick15 October 2020
Global fuel and air management systems supplier Stanadyne announced the opening of its new Research and Customer Service Center in Southfield, Mich. The new site is intended to provide the company’s customers with easier collaboration, quicker response time and improved access to their customized engineering technology solutions.
The center is strategically located to deliver increased operational efficiency, agility and proximity to its customers, partners and suppliers. Supporting the company’s development of gasoline and diesel fuel injection systems and future technology development, the office will initially house program management, engineering and sales activities.
“The proximity to our customer base will afford the highest level of response, quality and customer support, connecting us on a whole new level,” said Brad Stroia, chief technical officer, Stanadyne LLC. “Stanadyne is well positioned for growth, both domestically and globally, and the new Detroit Center increases our industry presence and allows us access to some of the most talented automotive R&D and engineering minds in the world to accelerate our product timeline from system innovation to market.”
Broadening its global footprint to the heart of the transportation industry in Michigan is the latest in a series of strategic growth initiatives the company has recently executed. In April 2019, Stanadyne acquired PurePower Technologies, a specialist in the engineering and remanufacturing of diesel fuel injectors for OEMs and the aftermarket. Earlier this year, the company also announced a strategic partnership with Liebherr Components, a global manufacturer of construction machines, engines and components, to supply, distribute and service integrated diesel fuel injection systems for on-and off-highway engines.
