This alliance will co-brand “O” Ring CNG’s public four refueling stations as “O” Ring CNG / GAIN® Clean Fuel and incorporate them into GAIN Clean Fuel’s nationwide infrastructure of natural gas stations. The existing “O” Ring CNG stations are located in Pennsylvania: two along Interstate 80 (one in Brookville and the other in DuBois), the third on Interstate 70 (in Bentleyville), and the fourth on Route 119 (in Punxsutawney). In addition, “O” Ring CNG has several more sites slated for completion in 2015 and 2016.
“This is a great opportunity for “O” Ring CNG and GAIN Clean Fuel,” said Bill Renz, general manager for U.S. Gain. “The “O” Ring CNG sites are strategically located along significant carrier routes and, with GAIN® Clean Fuel’s agreements with carriers operating in the Northeast, we are able to provide additional access to GAIN CNG for our partner fleets. It’s truly a win-win for everyone.”
Through this partnership, GAIN® Clean Fuel will have a total of 43 stations in operation or under construction throughout the U.S. The partnership also enables “O” Ring CNG to leverage GAIN® Clean Fuel’s CNG stations for use with its partner carriers. In return, GAIN will benefit from “O” Ring CNG’s presence as a regionally trusted industry leader in the alternative fuel market and its extensive existing and planned infrastructure expansion within the Northeast.
“This opportunity opens the door for us to serve GAIN® Clean Fuel’s partner carriers while meeting the needs of the fleets with whom we’ve already partnered,” said “O” Ring CEO Robert Beatty. “We are able to accomplish this goal without compromising our core company values and also respecting the missions of the industry organizations we support.”
