‘Pent-Up Demand Demand from Heavy-Duty Truck Fleet Operators’
Southern California’s Omnitek Engineering, which has stepped of the pace of conversion center partnerships in response to increasing demand for natural gas vehicles, has named Canada’s Tallman Truck Center as an outlets for its upfits in Ontario.
Omnitek (OTCBB:OMTK) offer spark-ignition conversions, for dedicated-natural gas operation, of engines including the popular Navistar DT466E and DT530E.
Omnitek says that North American expansion complements the company’s presence in markets since 2001 – “represented by dealers, installers and partnerships throughout Asia, Latin and South America and Europe.”
Two-Year ROI Claimed
“The addition of Tallman Truck Centre to our network of North American conversion centers provides a solid platform for growth in a region with significant supplies of natural gas and pent-up demand from heavy-duty truck fleet operators,” Omnitek president and CEOWerner Funk said in a release.
“We are seeing a pique in interest for diesel engine conversions from our customers, especially because of the economic and environmental benefits it could have for their business. We look forward to working with Omnitek to further increase the adoption of natural gas in Ontario fleets,” Tallman Truck Centre Bill Scanlon says in the Omnitek release.
Omnitek projects return on investment in less than two years – “a significant advantage compared with a projected return on investment of five-to-seven years for a new natural gas truck purchase.” The firm says too that it expects to obtain U.S. EPA and California approval for additional diesel engine models.
Tallman is an ISO 9001:2008 certified operator of a network of eight commercial truck dealerships with more than 350 employees.
