Bosch, DEUTZ and Eberspächer explore possibility of joint activities in non-road exhaust-gas technology
Robert Bosch GmbH, DEUTZ AG and J. Eberspächer GmbH & Co. KG have announced they are interested in collaborating in the area of exhaust-gas treatment for non-road vehicles. A memorandum of understanding to this effect was signed by the three companies. Its stated aim is to further pursue negotiations relating to joint activities in the development, manufacture, and sale of diesel exhaust-gas treatment systems for this market segment.
As the negotiations stand at present, the planned joint venture would supply complete diesel exhaust systems to all engine and machinery manufacturers worldwide. The requisite know-how is available in the three companies. Bosch can contribute its SCR metering systems, as well as expertise in electronic control units and systems competence. DEUTZ has a wealth of experience in the area of reducing diesel engine emissions, as well as the necessary application know-how. And, as a specialist in exhaust technology, Eberspächer is a leader in the area of exhaust gas aftertreatment. Depending on how the talks progress, the objective is to launch the joint venture and start series production as soon as possible.
