Automotive Service Councils of California Partners with ACAT Global

ASCCA Partners with ACAT Global

ACAT Global and ASCCA to provide the Calif. automotive service industry with alternative to expensive catalytic converters.

The Automotive Service Councils of California (ASCCA) has announced a new corporate partnership with ACAT Global Inc. Available for domestic and import vehicles, ACAT Global’s Metallic Series Catalytic Converters are US federal-compliant and also California Air Resources Board (CARB)-compliant for many applications under the Executive Orders published on the CARB website.

“Our American-made metallic substrate catalytic converters meet both federal and California emission requirements yet cost much less than those currently on the market,” said Joe Moch, CEO of ACAT Global. “A local shop can easily replace an OEM catalytic converter with one of ours if a unit no longer functions or was stolen.”   

ACAT Global manufactures catalytic converters for internal combustion engine (ICE) applications worldwide. The company says its proprietary technology is engineered for the most demanding on and off-road performance applications. These cost-effective products are typically less expensive than traditional products, according to the company.

CARB requires vehicle manufacturers to include engine and emission equipment systems on their vehicles that reduce specific pollutants. Eventually, these emission control systems deteriorate over time and must be replaced. Frequently they are stolen and must be replaced to comply with emissions standards. An exemption from Vehicle Code Section 27156 (VC 27156), California’s anti-tampering law, is required before any add-on or modified part can be sold in California.

“Californians have actively battled climate change and pollution for 55 years,” said Gloria Peterson, executive director of ASCCA. “It is critical that shops have advanced systems available at a reasonable cost so consumers can comply with the law and help us all reach state emission goals.” 

ACAT Global’s catalytic converters are available as a universal or direct fit system through independent shops in California on vehicles from 48 different global car brands. The company’s metallic catalysts use proprietary technology, engineered for easy installation, form, fit and function, says ACAT Global.

“We are excited to partner with ASCCA to give its members access to this reliable and innovative catalytic converter technology,” said Moch. “We’re working closely with various government agencies to implement retrofit programs, as well as replacement for stolen catalytic converters nationwide. We are developing new distribution channels and tools to teach technicians how to quickly install our technology on passenger vehicles. Shops using ACAT Global products can offer their customers a much less expensive, yet much more effective way to keep their vehicles compliant and help battle climate change.”
