Christopher Goodfellow - 19 April 2011

In response to a rapid increase in demand PPC's DEF Solutions division has taken delivery of two 6,500 gallon stainless tankers and has launched a separate Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) division to deliver BlueDEF.

Geoff Bohlender, Executive Director of PPC DEF Solutions, said: "As part of our offer to our customers we provide education around the importance of maintaining product integrity via closed delivery and handling systems, various equipment programs and DEF supply options including Bulk, Totes, Drums and Cases that are required for our customers' new vehicles equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in order to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's standards to reduce Nox emissions."

PPC Lubricants joined forces with Old World Industries in 2009 to promote and distribute the BlueDEF brand throughout the MidAtlantic Region of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware and parts of Northern Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and New York State.
