Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. says it has received approximately $600,000 in purchase orders over the past several weeks for its lightweight compressed natural gas (CNG) storage systems from the WheelTime Network.
The WheelTime Network is made up of 18 member networks with a reach into over 180 installation and service locations nationwide. Quantum has been the exclusive supplier of CNG storage systems to the network for after-market system conversions and is now expanding the relationship to include system installs on new OEM-level trucks at WheelTime locations.
Under an arrangement that began over two years ago, Quantum and WheelTime say they also have been training and educating the network locations on installation, maintenance and service.
‘We are excited to be expanding this relationship with additional orders and especially to include additional WheelTime members and locations,’ comments Brian Olson, president and CEO of Quantum.
‘We are working closely with WheelTime on setting up new locations with installation and service training and providing turnkey system solutions to the medium- and heavy-duty truck industry. Our goal is to have this relationship reach all 50 states by leveraging their expansive geographic footprint and trucking industry prowess.”
