“Save money and go green,” says AmericaCNG. Starting in Texas and working with a bevy of as-yet-undisclosed partners – with which it may form joint ventures or even buy outright – the Dallas-based firm is laying plans to be a leading purveyor of natural gas vehicle fueling services and vehicles in the United States, second only to Clean Energy Fuels.
“We will be opening 48 stations within the state of Texas,” says company spokesman Dick Kuiper.
ACNG Even Plans to Make CNG Tanks
“Our goal is to become the number two player in the business nationwide,” he says – acknowledging frankly that while Clean Energy has a “four-year” lead (some might say far longer), AmericaCNG will fill in the gaps between, placing compressed natural gas dispensers where consumers and fleets already fuel their conventional cars and trucks and buses.
“We’re going to manufacture tanks,” Kuiper told F&F. “We’re going to manufacture conversion kits,” he says. AmericaCNG will do so with an array of partners, and may go so far as to acquire one or more of them. A joint venture to manufacture all four types of CNG tanks is in the business plan too, Kuiper says.
