Plans to Introduce Snow King and Complete Engine Lineup

Janesville, WI (September 1, 2010) – Certified Parts Corporation (CPC) of Janesville, WI has announced it has entered into an agreement with LCT, (Liquid Combustion Technology) of Travelers Rest, SC to jointly manufacture air-cooled engines for the outdoor power equipment market. 

The agreement announced today will provide CPC with engineering, manufacturing, and sales capabilities allowing it to reintroduce the Snow King line of snow thrower engines and other engines formally manufactured and sold by TecumsehPower.  The engines will be exclusively represented by LCT, and sold under the Snow King, Lauson and LCT brands and serviced exclusively by CPC and the existing TecumsehPower dealer/distributor network.  Traditionally, the Snow King line of engines has powered more snow throwers than all other brands combined.  Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

LCT’s current horizontal 4-stroke gasoline engine product offering will be extended with this agreement and will also allow CPC and LCT to provide single cylinder and V-twin vertical engines to outdoor power equipment manufacturers.  According to Larry Zeman, VP of Winter Engine Products for LCT, “This establishes LCT as an engine manufacturer of choice as it continues to engineer a new generation of power." 

LCT only manufactures utility engines with sales and distribution operations throughout the USA, Canada, China and Europe.  For more information please contact LCT at 1-877-274-2214 (Press 2) regarding the purchase of a wide range of Snow King, Lauson and LCT engine models.  Additional information on LCT can be found at their website:
