Enerpulse Technologies has signed an exclusive distributor agreement with Imega International Group Srl, covering the distribution of Enerpulse's Pulstar brand spark plugs into the vehicular alternative fuel market. This market includes the CNG, LPG, LNG and E85 fuel conversion and service segments.
The agreement also includes high performance and racing markets for both natural gas and gasoline fuelled vehicles.
The agreement is for a period of five years in the European Union (EU) and includes minimum purchase quantities to maintain exclusivity.
Lou Camilli, President and CTO of Enerpulse Technologies, said: "The opportunity to join forces with this esteemed group is a major step forward for our company […] Imega is well established and known for its high quality products and expertise in the conversion of gasoline and diesel engines to [natural gas] fuels. As a group, they are also proven winners in the high performance vehicle venue, capturing the FIA CSAI Italian Hill Climbing Championship this year running with Pulstar spark plugs."
The natural gas vehicle conversion market in Europe is significantly larger than that of North America, with over four million vehicles running on LPG alone. This opens a potential market of US$ 320 million for Pulstar spark plugs; with the CNG segment continuing to grow at double digit rates.
The Imega agreement completes a critical second link to Enerpulse's global distribution of Pulstar products into the rapidly growing alternative fuel vehicle markets. Enerpulse recently announced a North American and Caribbean exclusive distribution agreement with Green Bridge Technologies, which includes its affiliate Icom North America.
