Following Pure Power Acquisition, Stanadyne Restructures Leadership, Names Presidents of Diesel and Gasoline Divisions

Stanadyne has announced its management structure following the Windsor, Conn., fuel injection systems companys acquisition of Pure Power Technologies Inc., earlier this month. Jerry Sweetland, President and CEO of Pure Power has been named Stanadynes President of diesel products, and David Zimmerman, Stanadynes Managing Director of the Americas, has been named President of gasoline products.

Since Stanadyne acquired Pure Power, says David Galuska, Stanadyne Chief Executive Officer, our collective goal has been to establish the best and brightest from both companies in positions where they can broaden our global market presence and accelerate growth.

Pure Power, which manufactures fuel, air-management and after-treatment systems for light-, medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines, is based in Columbia, S.C., where Sweetland will continue to direct the operation through this transitional phase. He was one of six original employees in 1999 when Siemens and Navistar founded the company as a joint venture, and by 2016, Pure Power evolved into an independent operation with Sweetland at the helm. Sweetland, a 25-year industry veteran, has also held leadership positions at Detroit Diesel, Siemens Automotive and Continental Automotive.

This is an exciting time for Stanadyne, and I am thrilled to be taking the lead on the companys diesel products, says Sweetland. Stanadyne has a long and innovative history in the diesel industry, and I look forward to bringing Pure Powers diesel technology to the table for the next phase of our combined growth.

Zimmerman, who joined Stanadyne in May 2018 after three decades in the auto industry, began his diverse career as a test engineer for Lear Corporation. He also led the development of Fords Windstar minivan seat system and was an engineer and sales manager for cam drive systems in powertrain at BorgWarner. Immediately prior to Stanadyne, Zimmerman was the Director of key account management at Continental Automotive, overseeing the commercial and technical relationships with Ford Motor Company.

Having been with Stanadyne for the past year, it is an honor to be named President of gasoline products, says Zimmerman. The potential of our gasoline direct injection line is very strong, and I am ready to carry over the success weve had in the Americas under my tenure to the global stage.
