Authority Transit in New York & Madison Truck Equipment in Wisconsin
Seattle-based World CNG is talking up strategic partnerships between an experienced coach builder and a recognized truck equipment provider as it expands its installer network to Wisconsin and New York.
World CNG has added Authority Transit in Hauppauge (Long Island), N.Y. and Madison Truck Equipment in Madison, Wisc. to a network that in addition to Washington State already includes California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Nevada, and Texas.
“World CNG selected Madison Truck Equipment, Inc. as a partner for the Wisconsin work truck market because we have years of experience and broad fabrication, assembly, and servicing capabilities,” Madison Truck president Mike Dwyer says in World’s announcement. “We are very excited to be offering World CNG’s full complement of EPA-approved CNG conversion systems for all makes of work trucks,” he said.
All Installations Are Fully Certified
“Our background in traffic safety made it clear that this partnership with World CNG will be a success,” said Dave Lipsky, president and CEO of Authority Transit – World’s first east coast installation partner. “It is our goal to educate and provide the community with a safe and sustainable alternative to gasoline vehicles,” Lipsky said.
World CNG notes that all of its natural gas vehicle installations are U.S. EPA- or California Air Resources Board-certified and compliant with NFPA 52, CSA, USDOT, and FMVSS 304. “The NGV conversions are installed by experienced technicians and then inspected by a CSA-certified fuel systems inspector prior to customer delivery,” the company says.
World CNG uses equipment from a variety of gaseous fuel system suppliers and applies its own engineering as well, especially with regard to CNG fuel cylinder installation.
