SSDiesel Supply™ - Diesel Innovations
SSDiesel Supply™ was formed in 2003 by Walt L. in Tonawanda, NY USA. Tonawanda being the home of one of GM’s largest engine plant, Tonawanda Engine, (home of the “Big-Block Chevy”).
Walt grew up a gearhead building countless hot rods, musclecars and custom motorcycles. Honing his skills through the years as an ASE Certified Master Diesel Technician, Industrial Service Technician, and eventually in management, including managing a truck dealership and Technical Service Manager in the Heat-Transfer Industry for a Fortune 100 Company.
Walt’s interest in diesels peaked back in the early 80’s when he purchased a 5.7 diesel engine to custom install in a ’72 Chevy truck. From there he acquired a GM 6.2 diesel p/u, which he quickly modified with the installation of a Banks Turbo and other performance accessories, then purchasing several 6.5TD's.
Realizing the high quality of the 6.5 TD engine, but discovering it’s minor weaknesses,GM 6.5 TD (Turbo Diesel) he came up with a solution to the chronic temperature related failures encountered with the PMD location.
His design was based on his education and vast experience in both the mechanical and heat transfer industries. Walt’s ingenious little device trademarked FSD Heat-Sync™ was born out of necessity. After extensive testing and the unit was proven to work, several units were sold to friends and acquaintances, and eventually word of mouth spread and demand for sales of his unit soared and spawned the idea of SSDiesel Supply™ being formed.
SSDiesel SupplyTM has undergone rapid growth and transformation in 2004 and set up their operation at 2307 Military Road in Tonawanda mid 2004. In just a year's time SSDiesel SupplyTM outgrew the Tonawanda facility, and moved their operations to a new 6000 sq ft facility located in Kenmore NY, in June 2005. Now 3 years later, we've outgrown that and decided to buy our own much larger building. Effective August 1, 2008 our new address is 829 Sheridan Dr. Tonawanda, NY 14150. This purchase represents a significant investment by Walt into the future of the company and in pleasing our customers. We're located a 1/2 mile east of Dunlop Tire, the only tire factory in the world making tires for Harley-Davidson, and 1/2 mile north of GM Powertrain Tonawanda, home of the Big Block Chevy! A true motorhead's dream!
Demand has taken on solving other areas of concern on the 6.5 with innovations previously unavailable to the general public. Recent developments with the FSD Heat-Sync™ have produced a unit to fit 6.5’s installed in G/P vans, school buses and other GM cab/chassis combinations, unprecedented in the industry.
The Company’s success is not only based on furnishing the highest quality products, but the belief in 100% customer satisfaction.
SSDiesel Supply™ now has a network of prestigious Diesel Equipment dealers, bus garages and transit companies around North America and overseas distributing their products and satisfying 6.5 Diesel customers around the world.
