A strategic alliance between McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and manufacturer of refuse truck bodies, and Agility Fuel Solutions — an international developer and manufacturer of all-composite cylinders and natural gas fuel systems for heavy-duty vehicles, has been further strengthen through a broader offering of services announced this week at WasteExpo 2017, May 8-11 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Brad Nelson, president, McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., and Oshkosh Corporation’s Commercial Segment, explained: “Linking Agility’s design and manufacturing expertise with our extensive installation, parts distribution and service capabilities creates a product and support system for natural gas fleets that is unmatched in the industry.”
The newly strengthened alliance is designed to offer fleets a broad and differentiated offering of designs and capacities to meet the needs of any customer. For instance, McNeilus will now be authorized to process claims, provide parts and service for Agility’s CNG systems and conduct Agility CNG installations throughout its branch network.
Agility’s strategic partnership with engine manufacturer Cummins has produced Blue iQ™, an integrated engine and fuel system with performance enhancements, diagnostics improvements and telematics services. Ultimately, customers will receive a world class customer experience and benefit from the products and services of all three proven market leaders.
“Improving air quality around the world begins locally with cleaner and quieter refuse trucks in our communities,” said Kathleen Ligocki, CEO at Agility Fuel Solutions. “Agility is proud to introduce Blue iQ™ to the refuse industry through our alliance with McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing. Together we offer North America’s best-in-class products, sales network and service.”
