AP Emissions, a division of APC Automotive Technologies, has significantly expanded its Exhaust and Catalytic Converter programs by adding over 765 new SKUs since the beginning of the year. The new additions increase make and model application coverage by more than 50 million vehicles. The announcement was made by Andy McIntosh, President of AP Emissions.
McIntosh noted, “So far, 2018 has been one of our most productive years to date in accelerating new part introduction. We have added a substantial offering of new SKUs to our exhaust, catalytic converter and diesel emissions product categories. New part introduction has been and will continue to be a critical focus area for our business and our customers as we work to find viable solutions that meet ever tightening air quality regulations.”
AP Emissions has added over 150 new exhaust products to its complete line of high quality mufflers, exhaust pipes, accessories, and exhaust systems, increasing make and model application coverage by nearly 15 million vehicles. Complementing this expansion is an additional 3 million vehicle applications that can be satisfied using existing parts.
The new part additions also include more muffler and welded assemblies, which have grown in popularity with both import and domestic carmakers. The ANSA import range has also added to the coverage with 56 muffler and pipe assemblies for many popular import vehicles.
Catalytic Converter Program
A total of 510 new SKUs have been added to the full range of both direct-fit and universal aftermarket catalytic converters for both Federal (EPA) and California (CARB) emissions vehicles.
The Federal (EPA) line has grown by 160 Direct-fit catalytic converters with overall coverage expanding by over 10 million vehicles. The California (CARB) line now has 350 new SKUs, many covering late model pickups and SUVs, as well as other applications.
New Diesel and Power Generation Program
Launched in 2018 as a new replacement parts category program for light, medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, this comprehensive single source offering features an exceptional application coverage from two leading under-truck parts brands. These include DieselTech, a complete line of medium and heavy-duty exhaust and emissions replacement parts and DuraFit, the industry’s leading full line supplier of EPA certified, exact-fit, OEM equivalent heavy-duty replacement diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and diesel oxidation catalysts (DOCs).
