Liebherr and Stanadyne announce strategic partnership

13 March 2020

Liebherr Components and Stanadyne LLC, a US manufacturer of diesel fuel injection systems and components, announced a strategic cooperation for the global development and production of common rail systems for the on- and off-highway market.

Liebherr—a manufacturer of industrial diesel engines—also develops and manufacturers fuel injection components for their products. The cooperation enables both partners to enlarge their range of medium- and heavy-duty applications within the commercial vehicle market, Liebherr said, and to offer more flexibility with regard to individual engine designs.

“This partnership draws on Liebherr’s strengths in terms of injectors and system integration. Furthermore, we rely on decades of experience in the development and production of our own engines. This enables us to know exactly, which requirements a common rail system needs to fulfill,” said Stefanie Gerhardt, Managing Director of the Common Rail Systems Business Unit at Liebherr. “Stanadyne, for its part, brings deep technical expertise in the development and production of high-pressure pumps, especially for medium commercial vehicles, to the partnership. This perfectly complements the existing Liebherr product portfolio.”

Stanadyne’s President, John Pinson, said: “Current market trends show that more and more established businesses are withdrawing from the diesel injection technology sector. On the customers’ end, however, interest in new and upcoming developments remains high. With this cooperation we are using our opportunity to enter the on-highway market as a new supplier. Besides the products, this cooperation also focuses on the service and distribution network. Stanadyne and Liebherr are both international players. By bundling these two networks, we are able to provide our customers with a personal contact on site, on every continent across the world.”
