McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, and Santa Ana, Calif.-based Agility Fuel Systems say they have formed a strategic alliance to deliver a comprehensive natural gas solution for North American heavy-duty fleets.
“By working together with Agility, we can provide fleets with a broad and differentiated offering of designs and capacities that meets any customer’s needs,” says Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corp.’s senior vice president and president of the commercial business segment.
Nelson adds that the alliance will pair Agility’s design and manufacturing expertise with McNeilus’ extensive installation, parts distribution and service capabilities to create a product and support system for natural gas fleets that is ideal for the industry.
According to a release from McNeilus, this alliance will allow Agility Fuel Systems to significantly expand its North American sales and support network.
On the whole, McNeilus and Agility will integrate their sales and aftermarket support and distribution networks to further enhance the end-user experience. Customers can have services performed and obtain replacement parts for their natural gas fuel systems through McNeilus’ national network of factory-owned branches and service centers.
Additionally, Agility says its strategic partnership with Cummins, a provider of diesel and natural gas engines to the trucking industry, will provide an optimally integrated engine and fuel system with performance enhancements, diagnostics improvements and telematics services.
