Windsor automotive-parts maker Stanadyne LLC says it's acquired a producer of diesel fuel injectors and turbochargers based in South Carolina's Capital City.

The global company, which manufactures fuel pumps and fuel injectors for diesel and gas engines, announced Tuesday afternoon it acquired independent supplier Pure Power Technologies Inc., of Columbia, S.C., for an undisclosed amount.

Pure Power has produced more than 30 million diesel fuel injectors since its inception in 1999.

The combination adds to Stanadyne's existing East Coast presence in Jacksonville, N.C., and five other international locations in Europe and Asia.

Stanadyne is headquartered on a 52-acre campus at 92 Deerfield Road in Windsor, where it built a 60,000-square-foot research and development laboratory in 2011 after moving its manufacturing operations to North Carolina.

It originally began in 1876 as the Hartford Machine Screw Co., and began developing fuel filters and additives as Stanadyne in 1970.

Today, the company employs 150 people in Connecticut and 1,150 outside the state, according to a company spokesman.
