Mumbai: Ashok Leyland, India’s second biggest truck maker has announced that it has made a ‘strategic investment’ in the Germany-based firm Albonair GmbH to develop vehicle emissions treatment control systems and products.

Albonair is part of the multinational Hinduja Group and an associate company of Ashok Leyland.

Albonair develops, manufactures and sells exhaust after treatment systems, especially for diesel engines in commercial vehicles (trucks and buses)

The company headquarters at Dortmund, Germany, it’s the central hub for R&D, will cater to the requirements of emerging markets to conduct local customer application development for vehicle and engine manufacturers.

The products, though developed by German engineering talent, are offered attractively for cost-sensitive markets by leveraging low-cost country resources, according to the company website.

The company website reveals that regulations for diesel exhaust emissions are getting stricter, worldwide. Hence the Euro 4 standards, currently in vogue in Europe, are expected to be introduced in India and China from 2010.
