Joint Venture to Produce Aftertreatment Systems

Staff | September 28, 2010

Engine maker Deutz, automotive parts maker Bosch, and exhaust technology manufacturer Eberspächer have signed an agreement to develop diesel-emissions aftertreatment systems.

When operations begin in January 2010, the joint venture — known as Bosch Emissions Systems — will produce complete aftertreatment systems designed for excavators, wheel loaders, and tractors, in addition to a range of other on- and off-road vehicles.

"As significantly stricter limits will apply to non-road and on-road vehicles in the future in Europe, North America, and Japan, demand for exhaust aftertreatment systems will increase strongly," says Dr. Gerhard Turner, president of the Bosch Diesel Systems division.

Bosch Emission Systems will function as its own company and work independently of its parent companies.
