Partnership with Enterprise Marks a Small-Business Milestone
Natural gas vehicles advocates in natural gas-rich Pennsylvania are celebrating the placement of a 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 bi-fuel pickup with Dawood Engineering, a small business based in Enola, outside Harrisburg. Dawood’s move “supports locally produced fuel, jobs and communities throughout Pennsylvania,” states a release.
“Compressed natural gas is a locally produced fuel that is important to our local economy, local job opportunities and local communities throughout Pennsylvania,” company president Bony Dawood says in the announcement.
The CNG truck is based at the company’s Sayre office location in northeastern Pennsylvania, with convenient access to three public access fueling stations. Dawood has a 40-vehicle fleet comprised mostly of pickups and small SUVs, and says it plans to add more NGVs as it replaces its older vehicles.
“CNG is ideally suited for Dawood because drivers generally follow a return-to-base model that avoids any problems caused by the absence of a convenient CNG fueling station,” the company states.
The bi-fuel Ram pickup is leased through Enterprise Fleet Management.
