United Engine & Machine Co. has announced the addition of Nick D’Agostino as director of product development. In his new role, D’Agositino will be managing UEM’s diverse piston offerings and the development of both cast and forged piston applications. With over 19 years in the automotive industry, D’Agositino’s core competency rests firmly in performance racing, which is an asset for the promising ICON Forged Piston line up. He will also be asked to go way outside the box, finding himself at the helm of developments for product lines like Silivolite Pistons and KB Hypereutectic Pistons, all while tasked with the reintroduction of the new Dualoy diesel piston line up.

UEM’s Vice President Christopher Sulprizio is pleased with the addition of D’Agostino saying, “I am putting the industry on notice that UEM is quickly evolving. Nick is one of those guys that has proven his value within the industry. By combining his expertise with our legacy of quality and innovation, UEM expects great things over the years to come.” 

D’Agostino reinforces Sulpizio’s vision saying, “I look forward to the opportunity to work with the UEM Team and the Sulprizio family. UEM has been in business for nearly 100 years, which is a testament to the quality of product, and character of people that represent this company. I am humbled to join their team.”

When asked about the decision to hire D’Agositino, Sulprizio says, “The decision to add Nick really stemmed from his leadership potential and natural fit within the UEM culture. Looking forward, we can’t help but be very excited to have Nick with us.”
