Navistar International Corporation is launching a new aftermarket product line, Diamond Advantage Diesel Parts, which will provide aftermarket parts for light- and medium-duty Class 2-5 diesel engines and engine components.
The products served will include Ford Power Stroke Diesel, GM Duramax, and Dodge Ram Cummins. Diamond Advantage parts will be distributed through Navistar's parts distribution centers (PDCs) to warehouse distributors, diesel parts specialists, and the International dealer network.
"We are excited about the opportunity to serve this complementary Class 2 through 5 market for aftermarket diesel parts," said T.J. O'Hanlon, general manager, Diamond Advantage. "Building on our strong track record in Class 6-8 diesel parts, this new product line will leverage our extensive distribution capabilities in delivering high quality parts to new and existing customers."
Ted Linhart, owner and president of Virgina-based wholesale distributor Dominion Parts Distributors believes Diamond Advantage will fill a void in the diesel automotive aftersales business. He contributed, "Diamond Advantage Diesel Parts provides the customer with a comprehensive diesel parts solution for all Class 2-5 platforms. This type of parts program is one that does not exist and has been needed for a good period of time."
Diamond Advantage all-makes diesel parts will be available for purchase effective March 15.
