Diesel Forward has reached agreement to purchase Everglades Diesel Injection Service, Inc. This acquisition will expand Diesel Forward’s distribution footprint and product range in marine and large bore diesel fuel and air systems.
Everglades Diesel was the second Central Distributor for Bosch in North America. For more than 55 years it has been servicing marine fuel system and turbochargers in South Florida and Caribbean region.
The Everglades team will be joining the Diesel Forward family and will continue to operate under the leadership of Nick Cibants. Nick will assume the role of General Manager for the region and for the marine product line. Nick has more than 40 years of experience in the marine business and will help expand Diesel Forward’s marine technical and service capabilities in support of our nationwide network of fuel system expert repair shops.
Everglades Diesel also shared that William (Bill) Gonzalez has retired. At just 18 years old he began his career at Everglades Diesel repairing injectors. His loyalty and hard work were rewarded and he was promoted to shop manager. In 1998, Bill was offered to be co-owner of Everglades Diesel and in July 1999, Bill and Nick Cibants became partners and grew Everglades Diesel to what it is today: a well-known, quality-oriented, reputable fuel injection shop.
