Liebherr Components has entered a strategic partnership with a US manufacturer to produce common rail systems for the on and off highway market.
Fuel injection solutions from the product lines of both Liebherr and Stanadyne LLC are core to the agreement
The two companies will work closely to enlarge the range of medium and heavy duty applications within the commercial vehicle market.
Both companies will offer additional flexibility in regards to individual engine designs.
Liebherr Managing Director of the Common Rail Systems Business Unit Stefanie Gerhardt said the strategic partnership draws on Liebherr’s strengths in terms of injectors and system integration.
“Furthermore, we rely on decades of experience in the development and production of our own engines. This enables us to know exactly, which requirements a common rail system needs to fulfil,” she said.

“Stanadyne, for its part, brings deep technical expertise in the development and production of high-pressure pumps, especially for medium commercial vehicles, to the partnership. This perfectly complements the existing Liebherr product portfolio.”
Stanadyne President John Pinson said current market trends show that established businesses are withdrawing from the diesel injection technology sector.
“On the customers’ end, however, interest in new and upcoming developments remains high. With this cooperation we are using our opportunity to enter the on-highway market as a new supplier,” he said.
“Besides the products, this cooperation also focuses on the service and distribution network. Stanadyne and Liebherr are both international players. By bundling these two networks, we are able to provide our customers with a personal contact on site, on every continent across the world.”
