Agility Fuel Systems, a California-based designer and producer of natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy-duty vehicles, has announced it will be opening a 204,000 square-foot production facility in Salisbury, N.C.
The company says its new facility, expected to commence production later this year, is strategically located north of Charlotte, N.C., in order to be in close proximity to heavy-duty truck and bus OEM assembly plants. The facility also allows for an additional 100,000 square feet of expansion, ensuring future scalability to meet growing demand.
Agility says its new plant capabilities will include compressed natural gas (CNG) cylinder production, structure and cover fabrication, a paint shop, fuel system assembly and installation, and onsite fueling for both CNG and liquefied natural gas.
‘Our new vertically integrated facility will enable improved logistics, guaranteed cylinder capacity to our customers, the highest standards of quality expected by OEMs, rapid product innovation and speed to market,” says Barry Engle, Agility's president and CEO. “Agility's investment in this facility demonstrates our deep commitment to the development and adoption of natural gas as a transportation fuel in the heavy-duty vehicle industry.’
