North Carolina Facility Has Been Operational for a Year
Agility Fuel Solutions is celebrating more than a year of production for its production facility for natural gas vehicle fuel systems in Salisbury, N.C.
“Agility has invested over $20 million to launch this facility in record time,” states a release. “The location was identified in January of 2015 and by October of the same year the plant and offices were successfully completed and in operation.”
The Salisbury facility is located near key customer Freightliner, which builds trucks about 60 miles away in Fort Mill, S.C. The Agility plant occupies more than 200,000 square feet and features CNC computer numerically controlled laser and metals fabrications equipment for fuel system enclosures, and an automated paint shop with both powder and wet-coat capabilities. The facility also features multiple flow-through bays to maximize installation efficiency for a variety of vehicles and system configurations.
ISO 9001-2015 Certification
Agility boasts more than 125 unique new fuel system assembly designs across the refuse, bus and truck segments – all launched since the Salisbury opening last year (F&F, October 22, 2015).
“Achievements also include profitability within four months and an ISO 9001-2015 certification within nine months,” states the anniversary announcement.
‘Instrumental in Driving Adoption of Natural Gas’
“We are very proud of what we have been able to achieve in such a short amount of time, which is a testament to the skill and dedication of our team and our partners to make this world class facility become a reality,” Agility Fuel Solutions CEO Kathleen Ligocki says in the announcement.
“This facility offers customer the best quality, cost and technology and we believe that the North Carolina facility will be instrumental in driving adoption of natural gas in the North American market,” she said.
