NTP Announces Expanded After-Treatment Protection Bundle For Class 8 Trucks

Cranford, NJ, September, 2015 – National Truck Protection Inc. (NTP), North America’s leading independent provider of extended service contracts to the trucking industry, announces the launch of a new after-treatment coverage option for Class 8 trucks.

The new after-treatment option bundles 6 key components into a single package that can be added to most National Truck Protection (NTP) and American Truck Protection (ATP) extended service contracts. The new bundle contains coverage for: the EGR VALVE (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve), the DOSER INJECTOR (“Seventh Injector”), the DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst), the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter), the DEF Tank (Diesel Exhaust Fluid Tank), and the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction).

The complexity of modern emission control systems has contributed to the overall cost of diesel engines and has consequently created significant interest among used truck buyers when they purchase their vehicles. Anyone who owns or operates a Class 8 commercial vehicle will find value in protection against potential failures of these after-treatment components.

“The marketplace has asked for a more comprehensive approach to after-treatment coverage, and again we created a solution to satisfy their needs”, says NTP President, Robert S. Amico. “After considerable discussion with our constituents, we have responded by bundling additional after-treatment components to our existing offering of EGR and DPF coverage. The bundle simplifies pricing and offers a single step to securing comprehensive coverage”. Amico continues, “NTP is offering this coverage for all major OEM engines, and it is available immediately. This additional coverage further separates NTP from other providers and further defines the unique comprehensiveness of the NTP product portfolio”.

The after-treatment package is an opportunity to further engage customers in a discussion on the quality of the vehicle and on the protection available to reduce overall potential costs. An NTP or ATP extended service contract can dramatically reduce the burden of unforeseen expenses, and help stabilize the truck owner’s finances. The new after-treatment option significantly expands the range of warranty coverage through the emission control system and provides additional security and assurance to NTP customers.
