Building High-Performance Diesels Since 2009

A fourth-generation business owner in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, diesel specialist Alex Schultz started Black Smoke Industries in 2009. After building his own trucks to compete successfully in drag racing and truck pulling events at fairs as far away as Indiana, it occurred to Alex that he could turn his hobby into a business and build high-performance diesels for others. And that’s what he does.

Alex launched Black Smoke Industries in Clinton, New Jersey in 2009, and after only a couple of years it became a fulltime, full-service shop for diesel pickup owners. From the start, Alex and his team have worked exclusively on Ford Powerstroke, Dodge Cummins and GMC/Chevy Duramax diesels.

State-of-the-art tools and equipment

We’re equipped with dealer-level tools and equipment from Snap-on. Black Smoke Industries has the same diagnostic capabilities as a dealership – except that at Black Smoke Industries, we work solely on diesel pickups, not on the manufacturer’s entire product line.

OEM parts

Black Smoke Industries uses original equipment manufacturers’ parts whenever possible because they tend to have much better fit, finish and longevity; our OEM parts carry a two-year warranty and usually are obtainable in one business day.
