Omnitek Engineering has signed a new lease for a 25,000-square-foot facility near its current location in Vista California, more than doubling the size of the company's current headquarters to support anticipated strong demand for diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions.
"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," Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek stated in the press release.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently approved the submission of Omnitek's diesel-to-natural gas conversion technology for the line of heavy-duty Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines under stringent criteria related to the agency's Outside Useful Life definition.
The new facility will enable the company to conduct undertakings for the Navistar engines, as well as proceed with further engine development and activities in other areas.
"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," Funk stated.
The company said it plans to obtain EPA approval for other diesel engine models to meet anticipated demand from trucking fleets that operate with other diesel engine models.
