According to Greg Borden, Commercial Director for DuraFit™, "This website helps communicate the distinct advantages of DuraFit™ replacement DPFs — differentiating DuraFit™ from substandard products, including remanufactured and offshore units. It underscores our position of 'Designed to Fit. Built to Last.™' and provides a very valuable resource to expand the DuraFit™ distribution channel and support our marketing outreach efforts."

Growing Distribution for DuraFit™

Based on a 2012 industry report, the market for medium and heavy duty vehicle after-treatment maintenance and repair is projected to grow from $0.5 billion in 2010 to $3.0 billion by 2017.

According to Ian MacDonald, CDTi's Vice President of Sales, "The medium and heavy duty aftermarket segments are just starting to recognize this multi-million dollar opportunity for replacement DPFs. And savvy aftermarket channel members are looking for quality units to avoid the high return rates associated with off-shore and remanufactured DPFs. We have proactively developed our DuraFit™ DPFs to directly address this opportunity, and we are now focused on growing the distribution reach of this exciting new product."

Designed and manufactured in North America, DuraFit™ DPF's are exact-fit OEM replacements; meet or exceed OEM emissions requirements; are backed by an industry-leading 18-month, unlimited mileage warranty; and are fully-supported by a growing distributor network and field application specialists.
