Alliance AutoGas has announced that it is launching the U.S. Autogas Technology Center in Asheville, N.C., where technicians will be trained to work on propane vehicles and new technologies will be researched and tested.
Blossman Services Inc., a subsidiary of Alliance AutoGas founding partner Blossman Gas, will manage the facility. Blossman vice president Jessie Johnson and Alliance AutoGas technical director Scott Spence will lead the center's activities.
The companies say the new facility includes an autogas equipment distribution center, an autogas vehicle technician training facility and an autogas equipment research and development center. It will serve as the ‘U.S. distribution hub for autogas vehicle and fueling station equipment, along with warranty support,’ they add.
‘Alliance AutoGas is committed to meeting the vehicle and fueling technology needs of American fleets,’ Johnson said. ‘That's why we guide fleets through the process of switching fuels and provide the ongoing support needed to make sure their autogas programs are successful.’
