The firm has two conversion workshops, one in Mexico City and another in the State of Mexico. “In addition, we train companies and other workshops interested in performing conversions to natural gas. We install the system into small, four-, six-, eight- and ten-cylinder engines. We have been working in NGV business for many years and we are pleased to set a good example in Mexico as a company that provides quality and safety with the intention of promoting a business meant to endure for long.”
By November 2012, Gazo had performed approximately 500 conversions. This year, they expect to increase significantly the installation of CNG kits since they are actively working with Mexican officials and taxi operators, which is “the segment with the most potential; we offer a comprehensive solution for them,” Madrazo Martín explained.
For him, the talks with the government represent a key point to spread natural gas vehicle business across the country. “We have to work very closely to disseminate the economic benefits that this clean fuel will bring to the Government; it is also necessary to establish a regulatory framework, such as standards for conversions”.
On the other hand, he revealed: “We have also proposed the idea of founding a NGV Mexican association in order to encourage the sector’s activities. There are many companies interested in joining us.”
