Omnitek Engineering Corporation has signed a new lease for a facility near its current location that more than doubles its size to approximately 25,000 sq. ft., which the company says will support anticipated strong domestic demand for diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions, as well as continued international market growth.
As recently announced, the Environmental Protection Agency has approved the company’s submission for its diesel-to-natural gas conversion technology for Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines under specific criteria related to the agency’s Outside Useful Life definition, the company says.
“In addition to conversion activities related to these two Navistar engines and the different configurations, which represents an estimated addressable market of 1.5 million potential conversions, the new facility is designed to support additional engine development programs, including sales support, training and manufacturing,” says Werner Funk, president and CEO. “We are continuing to focus on appointing dealers and authorized installers to support anticipated demand for conversions, and look forward to significant domestic growth from the build-out of our domestic conversion centers across the United States.”
The company’s new headquarters will be located at 1333 Keystone Way, Vista, California, effective March 1, 2013.
