Diesel Parts of America (DPA) has been acquired by DSS ProDiesel. DPA brings extensive international diesel fuel injector experience to DSS ProDiesel, creating a combined company that serves the diesel fuel injector needs of more than 50 countries.
DSS ProDiesel was founded in 1959 and has become the North American leader in remanufacturing of diesel fuel injectors, pumps, and other injection products and services. The company is headquartered in Nashville, Tenn. DPA is similarly experienced in fuel injector manufacturing and remanufacturing, as well as injector components and other diesel parts. DPA concentrates in international markets and global vehicle applications. The combined company will offer faster delivery across North America, broaden international support and products and accelerate overseas market development.
“ProDiesel has maintained an industry leading presence through our global network of distributors, and DPA brings additional international expertise, new markets, and an established customer base,” says Win Keith, president, DSS ProDiesel “Not only does the acquisition accelerate growth, it creates an opportunity to support the combined customer base with a deeper product line and enhanced services.”
DSS ProDiesel and DPA has more than 100 years of combined diesel fuel injection experience. With the addition of DPA, DSS ProDiesel says it will provide even greater products and services both domestically and abroad. DPA’s catalog of more than 30,000 products brings additional applications to DSS ProDiesel’s already extensive product line. Delivery times will be reduced across North America with the addition of DPA’s West Coast facility.
“DSS ProDiesel is a great strategic fit with complementary expertise, markets, and products representing a unique opportunity to grow the combined customer base through expanded product lines, services, and reach. I look forward to staying on board to focus on sales and development initiatives to grow the business,” says Ara Mansourian, DPA president .
Mansourian will continue with DSS ProDiesel, assuming responsibilities for West Coast sales, marketing and operations as well as international business development.
