GAC as OEM: Part of Many Engines
Looking for a Volvo Penta Actuator PN 3825454? Did you know that it’s actually a GAC ACB275H? GAC provides OEM solutions to more than 10 engine and engine-driven product manufacturers. They choose GAC because we offer quality, solid, proven solutions.
A manufacturer’s success revolves around its product. Often thought of as aftermarket production sources, OEMs are really the original producer of a component in a larger solution. In an engine, OEM components often include anything bolted to the heart of the engine, from sparkplugs to actuators.
GAC is an original manufacturer, designing and building products that are used by manufacturers as both integral parts of their product and aftermarket solutions. As a solutions collaborator, becoming an OEM came naturally to us. From collaborative designs to direct integration of a GAC part into a product, we have been supplying solutions to engine manufacturers for over 25 years.
- We supply NiftyLift (see GAC’s ALN 10 seconds into the video) with our ALN actuator and the EEG7000 in its diesel-engine-supported hybrid products.
- We worked with Iveco (CNH Industrial) to design the ALN actuators and speed control units it needed for its S8000 Series engines.
- We supply Kirloskar with GAC original components, providing support for firefighting and power generation equipment.
We build traditional OEM parts for many engine manufacturers, including Volvo Penta, Scania, DaeWoo/Doosan/Hyundai, Cummins, Aggreko and Deutz. It’s their part number, from our manufacturing plant.
We knew early that engine manufacturers needed support in creating the best possible solutions for engine control. In turn, engine manufacturers noticed our solutions were designed with their engines in mind.
We have more than 25 years of experience providing OEM solutions from design to manufacture. When it has to work right, if you or your customer needs a solution, call us. Distributors: use our handy OEM Part number booklet to match your engine part numbers to our products. Feel free to ask more about our OEM options.
Welcoming Visiting Distributors
We visited with many of our distributors this summer at trade shows and at GAC and abroad.
Md. Jahangir Ali Jilani of Reverie Power & Automation Engineering, Ltd, flew in from Bangladesh to plan for the company’s upcoming needs with Dave Sinaguglia, our marketing director and application engineering manager. Dual fuels and biofuels were the hot topics of the day, with lunch a close second.
Arni was in Australia meeting with a couple distributors to talk about the GC1000 Dual Fuel solution. As our senior applications engineer, Arni is all about engines. The GC1000 is an idea created by Arni and fully developed with the help of one of our talented engineers, Rick Riggot. This complete dual fuel solution is perfect for the outback’s large natural gas deposits. Pictured is Arni visiting Jubilee Energy near Brisbane; his next stop was Mecc Alte near Adelaide.
Teaching the Next Generation about Manufacturing
At GAC, we often have visitors from local schools who are interested in learning more about manufacturing careers.
This month, a group of students from the Kiley Academy toured the facility. Through the Spark Photonics Foundation in Waltham, MA, students interested in manufacturing, or who are part of a science and technology curriculum, visit manufacturing and R&D firms to see what types of careers are available.
The Kiley Academy’s visit included conversations about the different divisions of a manufacturing company. Darci Morrisette explained the history of GAC, and students learned about safety precautions and quality assurance. John Schapiro described the mechanical assembly process, John Lemoine explained how we build electronic circuit boards, and Kevin Smith demonstrated the power of a CNC machine. The students enjoyed a pizza celebration to round out their experience.
