Rebecca Hayward - 18 November 2013

Transliquid Technologies has announced the opening of a new Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) manufacturing plant near Bogotá, Colombia. The Texas-based company has partnered with Colombian water production specialist, Hidrotecnik, to expand into the growing South American DEF market.

The blending facility in Bogotá joins Transliquid Technologies' existing plant in Houston, Texas, both of which supply DEF under the NOXGUARD brand. Hidrotecnik's expertise in water production technologies, together with its strategic location in Colombia's capital city, will provide support and maintenance to DEF customers. The partnership will encourage both companies to expand and better serve the Colombian DEF market, said Transliquid in a statement on its website.
