Continental today announced the 100 percent ownership of their joint venture with the Germany-based Emitec Emission Control Technologies. Emitec has now been integrated into Continental’s Powertrain Division, merging with Business Unit Fuel Supply (FS) to form a new Business Unit Fuel & Exhaust Management (FEM).
With the integration of Emitec, which develops and produces metallic catalyst substrates, particle filters, and dosing modules for selective catalytic reduction (SCR), Continental now offers a comprehensive portfolio of exhaust-gas after treatment systems. While its current product portfolio includes petrol and diesel injection systems, engine management and transmission control, sensors and actuators, exhaust after treatment technologies, fuel supply systems, and components and systems for hybrid and electric drives.
“Our global production sites provide excellent expansion opportunities for Emitec's current products. Emitec, on the other hand, is strongly represented in the commercial-vehicle and two-wheeler sector, which can help us gain access to new market segments. The two wheeler market in India, for example, offers tremendous opportunities for our new Business Unit,” says Dr. Markus Distelhoff, Head of the new Business Unit Fuel & Exhaust Management, and former Head of Business Unit Fuel Supply.
In addition to production sites in Lohmar and Eisenach in Germany, Faulquemont in France and Fountain Inn in South Carolina, USA, Emitec has a plant in Pune, India.
