Fuel Systems Solutions designs, manufactures and supplies alternative fuel components and systems.

According to Fuel Systems Solutions, the companies received all approvals necessary to complete the deal, expected to close June 1. The merged company will conduct business under the name Westport Fuel Systems Inc., combining 17 brands in the automotive space.
