AP Emissions, a division of APC Automotive Technologies, has added 765 new SKUs to its lineup of exhaust products and catalytic converters this year.
The new additions increase make-and-model application coverage by more than 50 million vehicles, according to the company.
“So far, 2018 has been one of our most productive years to date in accelerating new-part introduction,” said Andy McIntosh, president of AP Emissions. “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 more than 150 new exhaust products to its complete line of mufflers, exhaust pipes, accessories and exhaust systems, increasing make-and-model application coverage by nearly 15 million vehicles. Complementing the expansion is an additional 3 million vehicle applications that can be satisfied using existing parts, according to the company.
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 also has added to the coverage, with 56 muffler and pipe assemblies for many popular import vehicles.
AP Emissions has added 510 new SKUs to the full range of direct-fit and universal aftermarket catalytic converters for both federal (EPA) and California (CARB) emissions vehicles.
The federal line has grown by 160 direct-fit catalytic converters, with overall coverage expanding by more than 10 million vehicles. The California 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 program for light-, medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, the comprehensive single-source offering features application coverage from two leading under-truck parts brands, according to the company.
DieselTech is a complete line of medium- and heavy-duty exhaust and emissions replacement parts, while DuraFit is a full-line supplier of EPA certified, exact-fit, OEM-equivalent, heavy-duty replacement diesel particulate filters and diesel oxidation catalysts.
Emissions Control and Performance Exhaust
AP’s offering of catalytic converters, mufflers, exhaust piping and hardware covers nearly every aftermarket application from light- to heavy-duty, gasoline or diesel and on- or off-road, according to the company.
“AP Emissions designs and manufactures ‘built-to-fit parts that combine coverage and quality with industry-leading innovation,” the company said in a news release. “Over 90 years of expertise is reflected in the safety, durability and reliability embedded in every product, across all brands.”
New Components from Centric Parts
Centric Parts, a division of APC Automotive Technologies, has introduced more than 3,700 new aftermarket brake and chassis components since January, according to the company.
The new-part introductions across the Centric Parts/StopTech portfolio include the recently launched PQ PRO disc-brake pads by PosiQuiet.
“PQ PRO represents the next generation of premium friction and is designed to deliver ‘like-new’ braking performance, while solving key service issues such as brake fade, weak braking response, excessive noise and dust and time-consuming break-in procedures,” the company said.
