Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV), a leading manufacturer of motor vehicles for commercial, fire & emergency and recreation markets, announces an exclusive partnership with CleanFUEL USA, an industry leader in propane autogas technology. Under the partnership, CleanFUEL USA will provide products and services to expand ASV's line of alternative fuel vehicles, namely propane autogas.
"ASV has a long relationship working with CleanFUEL USA on propane autogas fleet installations for type A school buses at Collins Bus. Expanding this relationship across all ASV vehicle brands will increase the breadth of propane autogas systems we can offer to our customers," says Tim Sullivan, ASV President and CEO. "We're proud of our commitment to offer green energy alternative fuel options such as propane that have long term benefits to the environment."
The partnership agreement calls for CleanFUEL USA's propane autogas systems currently installed by third party upfitters to be transitioned to ASV factory certified installations. Sullivan says this change will not only offer customers a full OEM warranty, but it will increase installation efficiency and improve overall quality control. The two companies will also work together to develop customer service centers that will offer spare parts and maintenance services for a full suite of CleanFUEL USA propane autogas systems for multiple ASV product lines and their customers.
"We consistently hear requests from ASV fleet customers – those who run shuttle and transit buses, terminal trucks and emergency vehicles, for instance – looking for propane autogas options," says Curtis Donaldson, founder and managing partner of CleanFUEL USA. "We are thrilled to partner with ASV to meet the needs of customers throughout the U.S. and abroad seeking the benefits of propane autogas."
Additional vehicle platforms, relative to ASV, are anticipated to be incorporated into the current OEM and aftermarket offerings provided by CleanFUEL USA.
