GT Emissions Systems, part of the Knorr-Bremse Group-owned GT Group, is on course for a major production milestone that will see more than three million of its exhaust valve systems in operation around the world.
The County Durham-based operation will see further significant growth in production in 2018, and dispatch over 500,000 Engine Air valves from its Peterlee headquarters. GT Emissions Systems manufactures exhaust gas control systems for on- and off-highway vehicles, construction equipment and industrial & marine applications, for global OEMs at its North-East manufacturing site. These systems positively contribute to diesel engine manufacturers’ emission strategies and are compliant with the latest international emission targets Euro 6, Tier 4 and pPNLT (Japanese emission standard). This growth in production has been supported by GT Emissions Systems’ integration into the global Knorr-Bremse Group following its acquisition in 2016. Designated as Knorr-Bremse’s global Center of Competence (CoC) for Engine Air products, the UK operation is also delivering emission systems to other Knorr-Bremse Group entities around the world. It is providing validation, development and testing for other valve systems, developed by Knorr-Bremse divisions, for its customers in a variety of countries including the United States, South America, Russia, China, Japan and India.
