Stanadyne wins contract for 3.8 million high-tech fuel pumps

Stanadyne, the fuel injection system developer based in Windsor, has won a contract to supply 3.8 million gasoline direct injection (GDI) pumps to a domestic auto manufacturer. It will not release the name of the manufacturer.

The four-year contract for Stanadyne follows the recent announcement that the company had just manufactured its 2 millionth GDI pump at its facility in Jacksonville, N.C. Financial details on the contract were not released.

The contract, which runs from 2018 – 2024, will serve as an extension of the current agreement with the same automotive manufacturer, making the total engagement 11 years. The GDI pumps being supplied will feature Stanadyne's latest high-performance, fuel saving technology and will be used in performance vehicles and pickup trucks.

Stanadyne will expand its manufacturing capacity in Jacksonville, N.C. to accommodate the new program beginning in March 2016. The 130,000-square-foot facility currently serves as the company's main production facility for GDI pumps and employs 280 people. The start of production for the new program is slated for 2018 with the first delivery occurring in April of that year.
