The plant assembles parts that enable the OEM a quickly switch of vehicles to CNG. The process does not require drilling any new holes or altering the frame.
Scott Brandeberry, vice president of the company, said: “GM’s vans are a good start. Also we will sell conversion kits for many existing GM vehicles beyond the van lines. Business fleets often order CNG vehicles for cheaper operation”.
At the inauguration ceremony, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch praised AVS for its initiative and reiterated his support for a bill that would extend tax credits for buyers of alternative-fuel vehicles.
Representatives from Utah Clean Cities, a program supported by federal funds to expand the CNG-fuelling network throughout the state, also attended the opening. “Companies such as Alternative Vehicle Solutions can help add cleaner vehicles to Utah’s roads”, said Program director Robin Erickson.
