Allied Specialty Vehicles (ASV), a manufacturer of motor vehicles for commercial, fire and emergency and recreation markets, has partnered with CleanFUEL USA, a propane autogas technology supplier. Under the partnership, CleanFUEL 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,” said Tim Sullivan, ASV president and CEO, in a press release. “Expanding this relationship across all ASV vehicle brands will increase the breadth of propane autogas systems we can offer to our customers. 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’s propane autogas systems currently installed by third party upfitters to be transitioned to ASV factory certified installations. Sullivan said this change will not only offer customers a full OEM warranty, but it will also increase installation efficiency and improve overall quality control. Additionally, the two companies will work together to develop customer service centers that will offer spare parts and maintenance services for a full suite of CleanFUEL 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,” said 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.
