Falcon CNG LLC, a company focused on performing natural gas vehicle conversions and handling related services, has opened for business in Fort Smith, Ark., where access to compressed natural gas refueling infrastructure is growing.
Barry Rowton established his 4,000-square-foot shop – the first in the city – at 3707 Wheeler Ave., according to a recent profile from the Times Record. Rowton adds that his operation is the only certified CNG fuel system and tank inspection facility in the region.
‘We can do four vehicles a week,’ Rowton told the Times Record. ‘Semis, buses, generators – anything that runs on gasoline or diesel.’
There are already two CNG stations in Fort Smith, and a third is expected to come online soon. Arkansas also hosts CNG stations in cities including Little Rock, North Little Rock and Jonesboro.
