Omnitek Engineering Corp., a California-based company that develops and sells diesel-to-natural-gas engine conversion systems, says its exclusive distributor in Turkey, Teknosis, is now operating under the name Omnitek Turkiye.
Omnitek Engineering says the name change comes as the distributor accelerates sales and marketing of natural gas conversions for heavy-duty trucks and municipal buses throughout the country.
‘Our partnership in Turkey is gaining meaningful momentum as public and private customers recognize Omnitek's cost-effective alternative to high-polluting diesel-powered engines and costly new natural gas vehicle purchases,” says Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek Engineering.
“This is particularly compelling to municipal bus fleet operators in Turkey, given a payback-period as short as four months due to the high price differential between diesel and natural gas in Turkey,” he continues. “In addition, the country's expanding infrastructure of compressed natural gas refueling stations complements our strategic growth expectations in Turkey and provides a model for other countries to emulate.’
Funk says Omnitek Turkiye's R&D center is now fully operational and focused on developing conversion kits for an expanding line of specific engine models operating in the Turkish market. He also notes ongoing municipal bus conversions utilizing Omnitek's technology in the Turkish cities of Konya, Kayseri, Adana and Eskisehir.
