Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., a California-based manufacturer of natural gas storage systems, integration, and vehicle system technologies, has received approximately USD 600,000 in purchase orders over the past several weeks for its lightweight natural gas storage systems from the WheelTime network.
The WheelTime Network is comprised of 18 member networks with a reach into over 180 installation and service locations nationwide. Quantum has been the exclusive supplier of compressed natural gas storage systems to the WheelTime Network for aftermarket system conversions and is now expanding the relationship to include system installs on new OEM-level trucks. Installations of these systems are performed at the WheelTime locations.
Under an arrangement that began over two years ago, Quantum and WheelTime have been training and educating the network locations on installs, maintenance, and service. As this relationship expands, the program has the potential of including all member locations and can provide the industry the needed support for ongoing service needs.
“We are excited to be expanding this relationship with additional orders and especially to include additional WheelTime members and locations,” said Mr. Brian Olson, President and CEO of Quantum. “We are working closely with WheelTime on setting up new locations with installation and service training and providing turnkey system solutions to the medium- and heavy-duty truck industry. Our goal is to have this relationship reach all 50 states by leveraging their expansive geographic footprint and trucking industry prowess,” continued Mr. Olson.
