CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Applus+ Technologies, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of emissions testing equipment and provider of vehicle inspection services nationwide is the first vendor to receive certification of this new line of vehicle inspection technology they branded as Smog DADdy. The products were developed to meet stringent requirements issued by the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) as a significant technology upgrade to the statewide Smog Check vehicle emissions testing program.
Smog DADdy is a next generation on-board diagnostics (OBD) device developed for performing emissions inspections on most model year 2000 and newer gasoline and 1998 and newer diesel-powered light and medium-duty vehicles. The new technology will replace less sophisticated test methods for the majority of California vehicles when fully implemented over the coming months.
Applus Technologies partnered with the Clean Air Group, Inc. to serve as its technology distributor for its line of Smog DADdy products available to current and new Smog Check providers across the State of California.
"Certification of the Smog DADdy products for California represents a significant opportunity for Applus Technologies. Although developed for the California market, the technology allows Applus to offer the same technological advances to our current and potential new customers within the global vehicle inspection market," said Darrin Greene, CEO of Applus Technologies.
"The Clean Air Group, based in Pleasanton, California has a team of dedicated sales professionals available to smog check providers throughout the state. They were selected as our distributor due to their extensive experience presenting solutions to the automotive aftermarket. Their past experience representing only well-respected manufacturers of emissions products in the California market validates the quality of the Smog DADdy product line. Adding them as a team member allows us to provide in-depth sales and support information to the entire California market."
