NW Fuel Injection certified as Bosch common rail injectors rebuilders
In 2018, we started renovating again, this time building a laboratory grade ‘clean room’ for the assembly of Bosch common rail injectors. The OEM equipment package was purchased, intensive training at Bosch’s Chicago facility soon followed, and we are now proud to be one of the very few shops actually certified to rebuild these injectors.
2010’s: A Period of Growth, Expansion and Reinvestment
2010 to present has been a period of growth, expansion, and reinvestment. We are proud to be considered experts in the industry and considered industry leaders within our own peer group as well. Gord was honoured to have been nominated and elected to a position on the Board of Directors with the Association of Diesel Specialists. During his two terms, he was heavily involved in the shaping and growth of our industry worldwide and brought many of those ideas back to the business locally.
Bosch Common Rail Injector Testing
Having relocating the truck shop, we finally had more available space within our main facility, and renovations began, adding a dedicated injector testing room. We were the first in Canada to take delivery of a new, state of the art, testing machine made “by Bosch, for Bosch” common rail injector testing. While we had already been testing these injectors using other equipment, this improved both our accuracy and capacity, as well as allowing us to perform warranty analysis on Bosch products on their behalf.
NW Fuel Offers CAT Rebuilding
With James’ arrival and previous experience, this allowed NW Fuel to get into CAT pump rebuilding, and to this day we offer CAT pump overhauls and repairs for all customers, including the OEM dealer themselves. Chances are if your machine was repaired by the OEM dealer, and the fuel system was serviced, the work could have been done by NW Fuel.
NW Fuel officially begins working on vehicles
The latter half of the 90’s saw NW Fuel officially begin working on vehicles. Ken had always taken on the odd vehicle job here and there, but it wasn’t until Gord arrived that things really got going officially. As trucks went high tech, so did we! This meant a large investment in scan tools and training, but Ken and Gord always believed that if you can’t do the job properly, you shouldn’t do it at all.

The 90’s – A decade of steady growth
The 90’s was a decade of steady growth for NW Fuel Injection. In 1992, owner Ken Byron was impressed at the work ethic of a young man working across the street at the local Subway. He offered Jef a job cleaning parts and sweeping up. Last year we were proud to celebrate Jef’s 25th anniversary with NW Fuel Injection.
Ken Byron began his career in the auto repair trade, earning his Journeyman status as an automotive mechanic. He left the automotive trade, joining a company that represented Ford’s commercial and industrial engines. During his short time there, he learned the diesel injection trade. From there he went to Bosch, It was a good fit because of his automotive and diesel injection background. He was their diesel injection reman guy, building pumps at Bosch Canada, before promotion “Technical Sales Representative” for Western Canada.
