ACAT Global Buys Emico Technologies
Nov. 4, 2013—Advanced Clean Air Technologies (ACAT) Global, manufacturers of efficient, lightweight catalytic converter substrates, announced Friday that it has purchased Emico Technologies of Barrie, Ontario, a manufacturer of automotive catalytic converters for aftermarket applications, downpipes and exhaust system components.
After closing the sale in August, engineers and product designers from both companies have already started collaborating on new product plans and ACAT has begun shipping its metallic substrates to Emico’s Barrie facility.
The companies will share a booth at SEMA Show in the Racing & Performance section, booth No. 25153.
“Both companies stand to benefit from this new relationship. Emico has an established aftermarket presence, plus assembly, machining, fabrication and distribution capabilities that will benefit ACAT,” said Joe A. Moch, CEO of ACAT Global. “In turn, ACAT provides new product opportunities for Emico, which will now be able to offer a high-performance line of catalytic converters featuring ACAT’s metallic, lightweight, high-flow substrates.”
“Joe Moch and ACAT have a clear vision for this industry,” said Jay Bondyra, Emico’s founder and general manager. “Expanding our product line to include ACAT’s high-performance substrates will introduce us to a new category of customers and give us an increased presence in the industry.”
