Denso at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week in Las Vegas Wednesday announced improvements to the PowerEdge Diesel Aftertreatment Program the company debuted at the same show last year.
Among the changes is an expansion of coverage for diesel particular filters and, coming this spring, full coverage for diesel oxidation catalysts.
Joe Mejaly, senior vice president of Denso Products and Services Americas, Inc., says the product expansion was born as the company saw the costs associated with core management rise and core fall-out increase.
Denso will also be adding a medium-duty DPF/doc program with coverage for vehicles in Classes 2-6 including those manufactured by GM, Ford and Chrysler.
Denso also announced the opening of a new parts distribution warehouse in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., a 143,000 sq. ft. warehouse that is 53,000 sq. ft. larger than the company’s Compton, Calif. The facility, set to open in April, will support the company’s heavy duty business, and Mejaly says he expects the new site will allow Denso’s to expand its logistics operations in the next 16 to 24 months.
“We are confident that this new warehouse with its state-of-the-art technologies coupled with the improved processes and procedures, will lead to improved first pass fill rates,” Mejaly says.
