Seasoned Fuel Systems Veteran Joins Stanadyne as VP of Global Engineering
Titus Iwaszkiewicz, Former Navistar Director of Powertrain Product Development, to Oversee Stanadyne’s Global Fuel System Product Expansion
Stanadyne, a fuel injection system developer based in Windsor, Connecticut, today announced the hiring of Titus Iwaszkiewicz as Vice President of Global Engineering. Iwaszkiewicz, a longtime executive at worldwide truck and engine manufacturer Navistar, will focus on expanding Stanadyne’s gasoline and diesel fuel system product lines by coordinating global engineering and product development teams, according to Stanadyne President Dr. John Pinson.
“Titus’s unique skillset allows Stanadyne to accelerate the process of bringing innovative fuel systems to market,” says Dr. Pinson. “His experience leading international powertrain and engine product development is instrumental to our future vision, and we’re excited that he will now guide our engineering team through as we strengthen our global position.”
Iwaszkiewicz’s nearly three-decade tenure at Navistar (formerly International Harvester) started in the engine lab and ended as Director of powertrain product development. In that position, his team worked on everything from natural gas engines to alternative propulsion systems, laying the groundwork for global powertrain collaboration with groups in the U.S., China, India and Brazil. Highlights of his Navistar career cover numerous fuel injection designs for the Ford PowerStroke engines including; development and design of the electronic control system algorithms for the T444E, integration of the HEUI Injector and launch of MaxxForce 5 engines and MaxxForce 7 engines for light and heavy-duty diesel applications.
In 2013 Iwaszkiewicz became President of Emitec, an exhaust and emission component manufacturer, where he launched a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) system used in their selected catalyst reduction (SCR) product. Emitec was ultimately purchased in 2014 by German based Continental.
“Stanadyne is an innovative company that is constantly evolving,” says Iwaszkiewicz, who is currently listed on five patents; four specific to fuel injection equipment. “My goals are to continue strengthening the company from the perspective of process and innovation and to be a conduit for Stanadyne’s engine customers across the globe. It’s now up to our team to drive Stanadyne into the next generation of fuel injection systems.”
