Nelson Global Products Signs Licensing Agreement with Universal Acoustic and Emission Technologies for Quiet Shield Industrial Silencers

Stoughton, WI – April 21 , 2014 - Nelson Global Products Inc. (NGP) has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Universal Acoustic and Emission Technologies (UAET) to market, manufacture and distribute cylindrical Quiet Shield®  silencers for use on high speed diesel and natural gas engines for the power generation market.  The agreement applies to cylindrical QuietShield engine silencers with a nominal inlet size of 18” or less.

“Given our long history, proximity and strong relationship with Universal, it was a perfect fit for NGP to license the Quiet Shield cylindrical product line to add a high performance, smaller package size silencer to the NGP Industrial product line while leveraging NGP’s manufacturing operations.  The UAET Quiet Shield technology combined with NGP operations and Nelson brand legacy is a powerful combination to grow the Quiet Shield product line,” said Kevin Stokstad, Senior Director of Product Management – Exhaust and Emissions, Nelson Global Products. 

“Our customers benefit from continued access to the cylindrical Quiet Shield product line from a strong, reputable supplier in Nelson Global Products” emphasized Ron Jake, Marketing Manager, UNIVERSAL Acoustic & Emission Technologies.  Universal continues to design and manufacture QuietShield puck and oval style silencers of all sizes, and cylindrical silencers 20” and larger (inlet size).  Universal also designs and manufactures engine silencers for use on medium and low speed engines and gas turbines.  

The silencers will be manufactured at Nelson’s Arcadia, Wisconsin plant and will be available for shipment starting in June 2014. Updated NGP Quiet Shield catalogs and price list will be available in the near future. Quiet Shield is a trademarked high performance (better sound attenuation, less back pressure) Silencer product line designed and marketed by UNIVERSAL Acoustic & Emission Technologies.
