Wakefield opens Canadas first DEF solutionizing facility

Bob MacDonald, president of Wakefield Canada, says the marketing success of H2Blu - the company's brand of DEF - has already accelerated the companys plans for Canadian production.

 Wakefield Canada says sales of H2Blu – the company’s brand of diesel exhaust fluid – since it launched just six months ago have justified opening a H2Blu solutionizing facility in Toronto.

Bob MacDonald, president of Wakefield Canada, said the marketing success of H2Blu  has already accelerated the company’s plans for Canadian production.

He cut the ribbon on a high-tech facility will take prilled urea, the raw ingredient in DEF, and process it into ready-to-use H2Blu DEF.

The solutionizing facility is housed within Wakefield’s existing lubricant blending plant in Toronto’s Long Branch area. The facility is understood to be the first of its kind in this country.

MacDonald said the production of H2Blu will bring jobs and economic benefit to the community and the country, fulfilling another of Wakefield Canada’s business objectives.

The Canadian and U.S. EPA legislated new diesel emission standards for all on-road trucks and buses in North America. Most diesel engine manufacturers have focused on selective catalytic reduction technology which requires diesel exhaust fluid.

Wakefield Canada Inc., a wholly Canadian owned company, markets, distributes and manufactures category-leading products for the automotive and heavy-duty vehicle marketplace.
