Cummins acquires Hilite emissions control business unit

Cummins has signed an agreement to acquire the heavy-duty emissions control business of 3i-backed Hilite International for an undisclosed fee.

Headquartered in Marktheidenfeld, Germany, Hilite is a global supplier of automotive system solutions.

Hilite’s emissions control unit works in in the design and assembly of exhaust dosing systems for on- and off-road heavy-duty vehicles.

The business accounts for approximately 25 per cent of Hilite’s revenues.

Following the sale, Hilite will focus on its core business of powertrain components for passenger cars.
