PORTLAND, OR - Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) announced a partnership with Cleaire Advanced Emission Controls, LLC, to be the exclusive North American (excluding California) provider of Cleaire retrofit emission control systems. DTNA will provide Cleaire retrofit systems, parts and services for all on-highway applications through selected outlets of DTNA's extensive dealer and engine distributor network.
Cleaire retrofit systems are designed to reduce emissions caused by diesel-powered vehicles. Local, regional and state government agencies are regulating the emissions from in-use diesel engines. Cleaire's retrofits have been specifically developed to help all-makes of pre-2007 trucks and buses meet those evolving regulations.
"Cleaire's retrofit systems have a strong track record of reliability while effectively reducing emissions," said John O'Leary, senior vice president, service and parts for Daimler Trucks North America. "Our partnership with Cleaire will significantly expand the availability of these retrofit devices as new markets develop."
Added Gale Plummer, chief executive officer, Cleaire Advanced Emissions Controls: "We are pleased to be working with DTNA to provide our effective and proven solutions for end-users striving to comply with today's stringent emission requirements."
DTNA has one of the industry's most extensive service and support networks, with factory-trained technicians at more than 1,000 Freightliner Trucks, Western Star Trucks, Thomas Built Buses, and Detroit Diesel distributor locations throughout the United States and Canada.
