About Westport Innovations Inc.
Westport Innovations, Inc. engages in the research, development, and marketing of low-emission engine and fuel injection systems that utilize alternative gaseous fuels, such as natural gas, propane or hydrogen. The company develops technology and products that enable light, medium and heavy-duty diesel engines to run primarily on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The company works with strategic partners, who include diesel engine and truck original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), to develop, manufacture, and distribute its engines, and it sells to a group of truck and bus OEMs worldwide.
The company focuses on three distinct categories or target markets for its products and services through Westport business units or joint ventures: Cummins Westport Inc. (CWI), which is focused on natural gas engine applications for urban fleets, such as buses, refuse trucks, and vocational vehicles ranging from 5.9L to 8.9L; Westport Heavy Duty (Westport HD), which is focused on LNG systems for heavy-duty trucks (Westport HD Systems) and the platform for the licensing of Westport HD Systems; and Juniper Engines Inc. (Juniper), which is focused on 2.0L and 2.4L engines for industrial applications, such as forklifts.
CWI is a 50/50 joint venture with Cummins Inc. (Cummins), a manufacturer of diesel engines. CWI develops and produces 5.9L to 8.9L engines utilizing gaseous fuels. CWIs engines are offered globally by approximately 60 OEMs of transit and shuttle buses, conventional trucks and tractors, refuse collection trucks, as well as specialty vehicles, such as short haul port drayage trucks, material handling trucks, street sweepers, and vehicles for selected industrial applications. CWI offers an engine called the ISL G.
Outside of CWI, the company is engaged in the development; design, and marketing of natural gas enabling technology for the heavy-duty diesel engine and truck market. It has launched a direct injection LNG system for heavy-duty trucks. Under the Westport HD brand, its LNG fuel systems for heavy-duty trucks are sold through Westport Power Inc. The company has a technology partnership with Cummins that enables it to develop natural gas enabling technology for Cummins heavy-duty truck engines. The Westport HD System uses the Cummins ISX 15L diesel engine (rebranded as the Westport HD GX engine) equipped with its proprietary natural gas fuel injectors featuring its High Pressure Direct Injection (HPDI) technology; its proprietary fuel pumps provided by Cryostar SAS (Cryostar), a division of The Linde Group; proprietary control units; and onboard LNG storage tanks designed and patented by the company and manufactured by BTIC Westport Inc. (BWI), its 50:50 joint venture with Beijing Tianhai Industry Co. (BTIC), a Sino-Korean company located in Beijing. The company also works with Clean Energy Fuels Corp., North Americas natural gas refuelling company, which provides access points for LNG and CNG refuelling stations.
Westport HD, as a business unit, provides a licensing platform for the company to design and develop new natural gas engines on various engine platforms. In November 2009, the company entered into an agreement with Volvo Power Train, a subsidiary of Volvo AB, to become a tier 1 development supplier for its heavy-duty natural gas engines and associated supply chain.
The company has signed a 30-year joint venture agreement with Weichai Power Co., Ltd. and Hong Kong Peterson (CNG) Equipment Limited, creating a new entity, Weichai Westport Inc. (WWI). The joint venture company would research, develop, design, manufacture, market, distribute, and sell advanced, alternative fuel engines (and relevant parts and kits) for use in automobiles, heavy-duty trucks, power generation, and shipping applications.
The company owns 49% of the voting securities of Juniper, which designs, manufactures, and markets fuelling systems for new vehicles and for the aftermarket conversion of engines from gasoline (petrol) to CNG and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The joint venture designs, produces, and sells alternative fuel engines in the sub-5 litre class for global applications.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
