MILWAUKEE, Wis. - ARI Network Services Inc. has signed a data license agreement with Liquid Combustion Technology (LCT) that will let ARI expand its B2B and B2C eCatalog offerings to a global network of more than 15,000 dealers and distributors.

"This new agreement will allow us to bundle the LCT eCatalog data with Certified Parts Corporation (CPC)'s popular TecumsehPower Company and Lauson Power Products eCatalogs, giving outdoor power equipment dealers worldwide a one-stop resource for this highly demanded replacement part data," said Campion Jaques, director, content services and international sales for ARI. "We're thrilled to build upon our long-standing relationship with Certified Parts Corporation as we enter into this agreement with LCT."

LCT is the manufacturer of Lauson, SnowKing and StormForce branded engines and private-label manufacturer for "many major OEMs," ARI announced. Lauson Power Products and LCT are serviced by Certified Parts Corp.'s TecumsehPower Co. dealer network.

"LCT is proud to partner with ARI to provide additional access to our service parts as we continue to expand our presence in the marketplace," said Larry Zeman, LCT VP of snow engine products. "ARI efficiently allows our dealers, the TecumsehPower dealer network, to identify and maintain inventory of parts required to meet customers' needs. We recognize dealers have many brands of products that come into their shops, and we believe merging the data with the TecumsehPower/Lauson information from Certified Parts Corporation is the most efficient and cost-effective method for the dealer base."
