BAF Technologies, a leading provider of natural gas vehicle upfits, is partnering with Steelweld Equipment Company to augment its conversion capacity in the United States. The agreement will enable BAF to expand its upfit presence while providing Steelweld with an opportunity to expand operations in multiple facilities.
Steelweld will be able to sell CNG products with BAF’s proprietary CalComp System and Steelweld employees will be trained and certified by BAF to complete CNG upfits according to BAF specifications. Technicians will also be trained to perform warranty and service work, making it easier for customers in the region to obtain service.
Founded in 1932, Steelweld is a manufacturer and distributor of truck bodies and related equipment. The company designs and manufactures bodies to meet specific customer needs with thousands of work-proven units furnished to telecommunication, public utility, construction, service, and cable television industries. BAF will leverage Steelweld’s locations in Missouri, Texas and Southern California.
Dallas-based BAF Technologies recently began converting 600 AT&T Ford E-Series vans this year to dedicated CNG technology. (Earlier post.)
