ASV Units to Pick Up Autogas Installation Work Now Done by Third Parties
Florida-based Allied Specialty Vehicles said Tuesday that it will take propane autogas technology beyond its Collins school bus line via a new partnership with CleanFuel USA. “CleanFuel USA will provide products and services to expand ASV’s line of alternative fuel vehicles, namely propane autogas,” ASV said.
“ASV has a long relationship working with CleanFuel USA on propane autogas fleet installations for type A school buses at Collins Bus,” ASV president and CEO Tim Sullivan said in a release.
“Expanding this relationship across all ASV vehicle brands will increase the breadth of propane autogas systems we can offer to our customers.”
Full Warranties, Greater Efficiency
The pact calls for CleanFuel USA propane autogas systems currently installed by third party upfitters to be transitioned to ASV factory certified installations, ASV said. According to Sullivan, the offer customers a full OEM warranty, and 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,” the announcement states.
Customers Want More Options
“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, says in the ASV announcement.
Allied Specialty Vehicles brands include Capacity, ElDorado National, Champion Bus, Goshen Coach, Holiday Rambler and Federal Coach.
