National Truck Protection Offers After-Treatment Policy for Class 8 Trucks

National Truck Protection Inc. (NTP), a 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 six 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.”

NTP, based in Cranford, N.J., has provided private label warranties to major OEMs as well as extended service contracts to the used truck segment for more than three decades.
