Blue Ridge Diesel is located in the Roanoke Valley which is in the southwestern region of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We began business as “Diesel Injection Sales & Service” back in 1952, as a diesel fuel injection service facility. W. B.”Bernie” Nunnally, Sr. managed the Salem branch until 1973. He then purchased the branch and named the business “Blue Ridge Diesel Injection, Inc.”. W. B. “Bill” Nunnally, Jr. came home to join his father in 1974, and has managed the facility since the Sr.’s retirement in 1987. W. B. “Will” Nunnally, III came aboard in 1992. We are proud of our 60 year heritage and continuity of business.
As the company and region has grown, we have added products and services to meet the demands of a broadened customer base. In addition to our fuel injection business, we have expanded into new engine sales for reputable import diesel engine manufacturers. This also leads to the expansion and diversification of our service department to encompass the repair, rebuilding, and warranty services of these engines.
Some of the products we feature are diesel engines for industrial, agricultural, construction, mining, and marine applications. Several of the manufacturers we represent feature engines which meet MSHA Part 7 emissions certification for underground use. Manufacturers represented are Isuzu, Deutz, Perkins, Ruggerini, Kohler/Lombardini, Lister-Petter, John Deere (Mining Application Engine Parts and Services) and Yanmar.
Our Service Department represents these engine manufacturers with competent, dependable service on both in or out of warranty repairs or complete overhauls of your engine. And our “in-house” “factory-authorized” fuel injection repair shop, in combination with our engine rebuilding and test facility, can certify the engine we overhaul to meet factory standards for power and emissions.
Because of our dedication to provide quality products and support, we feel we can offer an invaluable service to OEMs, Dealers, and end users. We look forward in the new millennium to continuing our commitment to providing a complete sales & service facility.
