Navistar International Corporation is launching a new aftermarket product line, Diamond Advantage Diesel Parts, which will provide high-quality aftermarket parts for Class 2-5 diesel engines and engine components, according to an announcement.
Diamond Advantage parts will be distributed through Navistar’s parts distribution centers (PDCs) to warehouse distributors, diesel parts specialists and the International dealer network. The products served will include Ford Power Stroke Diesel, GM Duramax and Dodge RAM Cummins.
“We are excited about the opportunity to serve this complementary Class 2 through 5 market for aftermarket diesel parts,” says 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 wholesale distributor Dominion Parts Distributors says Diamond Advantage will fill a void in the diesel automotive aftersales business. “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,” he says.
“Our scale, expertise and relationships offer parts customers in this segment a compelling value proposition that supports Navistar’s commitment to improved customer uptime and reduced total cost of ownership,” says Josef Kory, Navistar senior vice president, aftersales. “This new product line reflects our commitment to support our customers on the road better than anyone else, through unsurpassed responsiveness and an extensive Class 2-8 product offering.”
