Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. announced that it has received approximately $600,000 in purchase orders over the past several weeks for its light weight natural gas storage systems from the WheelTime Network, thus strengthening the commercial alliance. Orders are from existing customer members and three new members of WheelTime’s expansive nationwide network.
Quantum has been the exclusive supplier of CNG 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 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.”
