On September 22nd, Rypos held our quarterly TRU Dealer Webinar.
This quarter's topics included insight into the market by Rypos and our Dealers, discussion on increased CARB enforcement activity, a review of our Carrier & Thermo King filter availability, updates on Rypos' new product deployment, and a review of ARB’s compliance regulation for retrofits.
A summary of our presentation follows:
Market & Dealer Feedback - Ongoing volatility in our dealer's service business continues with some notable observations:
- Increased enforcement efforts have had an effect on sales
- Recent sizable orders for large fleets that required immediate solutions
- Although new TRU deliveries are still well into 2022, Rypos' supply chain has remained secure - we have inventory.
Additionally, our Dealers provided the following insights:
- Service revenues have been stable, freight rates are on the increase
- Increased concern as parts lead times have increased
- Filter activity (quotes and sales) are directly related to CARB compliance efforts
CARB Enforcement - Enforcement resources continue to step up their presence and are now supplemented by technology and partnerships to identify emissions violators including Non-Compliant TRU Operators and operators not addressing service bulletins.
- Rypos' TK C Series Filter Product, compatible with the C-600 TRU has been released with part number 960-0097-00-08 and pricing. Dealer's reports continue to be favorable.
- Carrier Vector and X4 7300/7500 CARB verified filters are available and are in production. To date, 176 have been sold and positive feedback on belt life and ease of install has been received
- CARB’s regulations continue to be in effect and deadlines apply.
- Since 2015, engine replacements have not been a viable compliance strategy on 2008 and newer TRU’s
