The Seidel Diesel Group has acquired the assets of Associated Fuel Injection (AFI) of Modesto, Calif., and the business will continue to operate out of the current Modesto facility. The purchase brings SDG’s total number of fuel shops to 10.
“This acquisition provides the Seidel Diesel Group with a great opportunity to serve customers in the northern California region,” says Paul Thoms, President. “We are excited to expand our presence on the West Coast.”
AFI has been serving customers in northern California since 1982. It has served the heavy-duty, automotive, agricultural, industrial and marine markets, specializing in diesel fuel injection parts, repair, diagnostics and exchange units for diesel systems and turbochargers.
The location also repairs and services pumps and injectors for applications, such as Cummins, Isuzu, John Deere, Caterpillar, Navistar, UD, Detroit, Hino and Kubota. Associated Fuel Injection also is a Factory Authorized Service Dealer for Bosch, Denso, Delphi, Ambac, Alliant Power, Stanadyne, Yanmar and Zexel.
“Our new affiliation with the Seidel Diesel Group will allow us to service our agricultural customers even better than before. This new alliance also opens up opportunities with many other types of customers in the central California region,” says Mike Baer, AFI’s prior owner.
