Reading Truck Body and OEM Systems have announced a new partnership that will provide a “one-stop solutions” for fleets looking for compressed natural gas (CNG) systems for service trucks.

OEM Systems provides CNG conversion systems.

“With OEM Systems’ expansive knowledge and experience with CNG conversions, Reading will deepen its portfolio and broaden its ability to deliver a best-in-class solution for our customers,” said Craig Bonham, vice president of sales for Reading Truck Body. “An added benefit is that OEM Systems is an authorized Reading Truck distributor, so they are very familiar with Reading’s complete offering of steel and aluminum truck bodies.”

CNG upfits will take place at Reading’s Louisville, Ky facility which provides ship-thru capabilities. The centralized geographic location is conveniently located adjacent to the Ford Motor Company and its Kentucky truck assembly plant. This creates additional efficiencies both in time and cost savings for the small to large businesses and fleets nationwide, the companies noted.

“The infrastructure for CNG service stations continues to grow across the country with companies either investing in private stations or working collaboratively in order to share the cost. Continued growth in our industry drives demand and makes this the ideal time to partner with Reading. With their nationwide distributor network and national accounts team, it’s a natural fit,” said Curtis Stephenson, director of sales for OEM Systems.
