Venchurs Vehicle Systems has formed a new partnership with the Knapheide Manufacturing Co. whereby the companies will provide compressed natural gas (CNG) conversions in concert with service-body upfits for Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks. Venchurs will also work with Knapheide and Sortimo to provide customized storage solutions for the 2014 Ford Transit Connect and Transit.
Venchurs has a ship-thru facility in Louisville, Ky., and a remote ship-thru facility in southeast Michigan. The company will also now utilize Knapheide's ship-thru facility in Kansas City.
‘We're excited about expanding our CNG offerings with Venchurs Vehicle Systems,’ says Chris Weiss, vice president of engineering at Knapheide. ‘It gives us the opportunity to provide quality and cost-effective solutions to meet our customers' needs.’
‘We want to meet all the needs of our fleet customers, and that means offering more than just the CNG conversion,’ adds Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs, a Ford Motor Co. Qualified Vehicle Modifier. ‘We have been able to offer betterments such as suspensions, bumpers, wheels and tires, but this partnership with Knapheide allows us to round out our portfolio, offering service bodies and customized storage solutions.’
