We, the membership of the Association of Diesel Specialists, see ourselves as the leading international organization of professionals that provides sales and expert service for yesterdays, today’s and tomorrow’s diesel systems. Our goal is to be the complete resource for training, technical service information, member promotion and networking opportunities.
Our Association encourages participation at all levels of membership and is operated with the highest level of fiscal integrity. We embrace the economical, durable and clean diesel engine as one of the key elements for addressing global pollution and fossil fuel depletion.
The Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS) believes in the future of clean diesel as part of an environmental solution to global greenhouse gas issues. ADS believes in the future of the inherently more efficient clean diesel power plant as a method of reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. ADS applauds the work of engine manufacturers in their efforts to continuously reduce emissions in diesel engines to near infinitesimal levels. ADS believes that the use of clean diesel will improve the sustainability of consumers, businesses and communities by reducing the environmental and societal cost of their activities.
ADS does not condone the use of devices made to intentionally contravene emission controls for use in equipment or vehicles used on a regular basis. ADS believes that intentionally bypassing or altering emission controls in the name of performance enhancement undermines individual and group efforts to promote the use of clean diesel as a viable alternative power plant for the future.
The Association of Diesel Specialists is governed by a Board of Directors representing all segments of membership. Board officers work with the Association's professional headquarters staff and committees to work toward meeting the Association's mission to provide programs and services to members which will assist them in achieving success in the operation of their businesses.
