Following Pure Power Acquisition, Stanadyne Restructures Leadership, Names Presidents of Diesel and Gasoline Divisions

Industry veterans Jerry Sweetland and David Zimmerman to lead
Stanadyne through next phase of global growth

WINDSOR, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Stanadyne has announced its management structure following the Windsor,
Conn., fuel injection systems company’s acquisition of Pure Power
Technologies Inc., earlier this month. Jerry Sweetland, President and
CEO of Pure Power has been named Stanadyne’s President of diesel
products, and David Zimmerman, Stanadyne’s Managing Director of the
Americas, has been named President of gasoline products.

“Since Stanadyne acquired Pure Power,” says David Galuska, Stanadyne
Chief Executive Officer, “our collective goal has been to establish the
best and brightest from both companies in positions where they can
broaden our global market presence and accelerate growth.”

Pure Power, which manufactures fuel, air-management and after-treatment
systems for light-, medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines, is based in
Columbia, S.C., where Sweetland will continue to direct the operation
through this transitional phase. He was one of six original employees in
1999 when Siemens and Navistar founded the company as a joint venture,
and by 2016, Pure Power evolved into an independent operation with
Sweetland at the helm. Sweetland, a 25-year industry veteran, has also
held leadership positions at Detroit Diesel, Siemens Automotive and
Continental Automotive.

“This is an exciting time for Stanadyne, and I am thrilled to be taking
the lead on the company’s diesel products,” says Sweetland. “Stanadyne
has a long and innovative history in the diesel industry, and I look
forward to bringing Pure Power’s diesel technology to the table for the
next phase of our combined growth.”

Zimmerman, who joined Stanadyne in May 2018 after three decades in the
auto industry, began his diverse career as a test engineer for Lear
Corporation. He also led the development of Ford’s Windstar minivan seat
system and was an engineer and sales manager for cam drive systems in
powertrain at BorgWarner. Immediately prior to Stanadyne, Zimmerman was
the Director of key account management at Continental Automotive,
overseeing the commercial and technical relationships with Ford Motor

“Having been with Stanadyne for the past year, it is an honor to be
named President of gasoline products,” says Zimmerman. “The potential of
our gasoline direct injection line is very strong, and I am ready to
carry over the success we’ve had in the Americas under my tenure to the
global stage.”
