Power Solutions International Extends Agreement with GM
March 26, 2013—Power Solutions International Inc. (PSI), the manufacturer of alternative fuel and conventional power systems, announced on Monday a multi-year supply agreement with General Motors (GM) that will extend the company’s product line targeted at on-highway applications.
PSI will use GM’s 4.8-Liter and 6.0-Liter engines and associated transmission as the foundation for its powertrain solutions for the medium-duty truck and bus market.
With this product line expansion, PSI says it may have one of the most comprehensive ranges of powertrains for vehicles in the Class 4 through Class 7 truck and bus market.
"Our expanded product line can simplify our customers' operations, reduce complexity and unify support across all of our OEM customers' products," said Dan Grohoski, director of New Business Development for PSI. "Our fuel-flexible engines allow fleets to select the fuel strategy that best fits their needs. In addition, reduced supply chain complexity is a significant benefit for our OEM customers. We enable them to work with a single control and software platform, one parts and servicing company, and one training system."
PSI has been using GM engines for industrial applications since 1995.
