Carrier Transicold signed an agreement to acquire select road and rail transport product lines from the Impco Technologies unit of Westport Fuel Systems Inc., including Westport’s ComfortPro auxiliary power unit.

Carrier will oversee the development, engineering and manufacturing of APUs and battery comfort systems for trucks and APUs for locomotives, and provide increased customer support, the Athens, Ga.-based company said.

“In addition to delivering a broad range of transport refrigeration solutions to our customers, with this acquisition, we are expanding our offerings to include anti-idling technologies that contribute to greater operator comfort as well as reduced fuel consumption while meeting operational and sustainability goals,” Tom Ondo, general manager for Carrier Transicold, Truck/Trailer/RailAmericas, said in a statement.

Carrier Transicold is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies.
