Fresno, CA-based A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems has announced expansion plans for a facility in Elkhart, IN. The company focuses on the installation of CNG, LNG and LPG systems on shuttle buses, but can install the systems on most EPA and CARB-certified vehicles.
A-1 is a Ford certified “gaseous fuel” QVM company.
“We are in a strong position to apply our depth of experience in California to markets all around the country,” said Mark Gilio, president. “Over the past eighteen years we have built a reputation in California that I am very proud of and my goal is to make sure that the rest of the country is able to experience, firsthand, exactly what enabled us to earn that reputation.”
The company has installed its natural gas systems on over 400 vehicles at his Fresno headquarters since 2012. The company will be cross-engineering its range of platforms (Ford E-450, F-550/650, F-59, GM G4500) with body builders of the major manufacturers in Elkhart and the surrounding areas.
