Alfdex partners with Dorman Products in the USA

Today we are very proud to announce a partnership with Dorman Products to bring Alfdex service kits to the independent aftermarket in the United States! Dorman is known for offering premium-quality products to their customers. Today marks a significant step forward for Alfdex, as this will be our first independent aftermarket distribution partner in the US market. Through this collaboration, we look forward to providing even better access and availability of our products to the customers who need them.

Mark Myers, Key Account Manager – North America commented: “Alfdex is proud to partner with Dorman to deliver premium-quality crankcase ventilation solutions to their customers across North America. You can now find the replacements you need at and wherever you can find Dorman.”

Expanding the Alfdex aftermarket network

We are proud to announce that Alfdex service kits are now available to the independent aftermarket in North America through our partnership with ADF Diesel. ADF is stocking our product line to provide their customers with our quality service kits with quick delivery from their local warehouses in Canada.

Mark Myers, Key Account Manager – North America commented: “The demand for Alfdex service kits in North America is higher than ever, thanks to a large and growing population of high-mileage trucks using Alfdex OE CCV systems. Our partnership with ADF will better support the local market with faster delivery and wider availability of genuine Alfdex service kits.”

Six million separators

Alfdex have passed yet another milestone as we have now produced more than six million Alfdex oil mist separators at our factories in Landskrona and Kunshan, since the start of high-volume serial production in 2006.

The six million Alfdex oil mist separators in use have saved the equivalent number of 15’000 truckloads of oil from being emitted into the environment by using a mounted Alfdex separator. In collaboration with our globally leading customers, we are making a huge difference!

Shorter local lead times in China

To meet increased demands in the local Chinese market and in order to shorten lead times, Alfdex is continuously increasing its network of local suppliers.

Daniel Rosberg, Alfdex Director Supply Chain, commented: By continuously scanning the Chinese market for the best suppliers, using a partnership approach, we ensure a competitive local presence with maximum supply flexibility.

Grow with competence

Following our business expansion on the Chinese market our number of local Alfdex colleagues has also grown. We are always on the lookout for innovative and professional talents to join us in our Chinese journey!

Yong Lyu, General Manager Alfdex Kunshan, commented: As a small but fast growing company in a high tech industry we offer our co-workers a large scope of responsibility and influence to really make an impact.

Alfdex next step in China

In 2018 Alfdex established operations in China and with the upcoming “China 6” emission legislation for trucks we are now taking the next step in our local presence.

Fredrik Larsson, CEO Alfdex AB, commented: China is the largest commercial vehicle market in the world. Using our innovative technology, Alfdex is supporting and partnering with local engine manufacturers to take the next step in China 6 engine performance, benefitting the environment. We are proud to be part of this transformation.

Summer greetings

The summer is arriving and hopefully it’s here to stay! This means that vacations are approaching and with a bit of luck we will all get to enjoy some days in the sun.

Alfdex production will be running with reduced capacity during the summer months. Thanks to our summer workers most of our staff will be able to have their holidays from mid-July until mid-August. The office will still be open during this time.

We wish you all a nice and relaxing summer holiday!

NEWS RELEASE: Alfdex wins an important contract for an electric oil mist separator

Alfdex AB, a 50/50 joint venture between Alfa Laval and Concentric, today announces it has won a contract to supply an electric oil mist separator to a major global truck OEM. This contract with one of the world’s largest leading truck manufacturers proves the new patented electric oil mist separator offers market-leading technology. Production will start in 2024 and sales revenues from this new contract are estimated to be worth more than MSEK 400 over the next five years.

Alfdex has a long history of providing reliable and high performing solutions for the active cleaning of crankcase gases in heavy-duty truck engines, a market the company leads globally. With the onset of even more stringent emission legislation, as well as new demands on CO2 efficiency, Alfdex has invested in a new range of electrically powered oil mist separators. These combine the rugged and maintenance free design of the original Alfdex separator with a state-of-the-art electric drive unit, enabling even higher cleaning performance controlled precisely by software. As upcoming proposed legislations increasingly emphasize the need for maintenance free and durable solutions, the Alfdex electric separator is a perfect match.

“This marks yet another technological breakthrough for Alfdex”, says Fredrik Larsson, Managing Director of Alfdex. “By bringing this state-of-the-art level of separation technology to our customers, we are able to offer higher cleaning and energy efficiency. This is a continuation and acceleration of the 20-year long story of Alfdex innovation, which ultimately is about finding new ways to bring added value to our customers and the environment.”
