IMPCO Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc., announced that Isuzu commercial vehicle dealers can now select IMPCO as a ship-through option more quickly to convert or to modify gasoline-powered NPR-HD (14,500-lb. GVWR) trucks to CNG operation.
As part of the ship-through process, Isuzu trucks built at the Charlotte, Michigan plant will be transported to IMPCO’s OEM Automotive conversion facility in Union City, Indiana for CNG system installation. Upon completion, vehicles will be returned to ICTA for North American distribution. This program will simplify the vehicle modification process for dealers and fleet managers.
Isuzu’s new ship-through program will enable Isuzu customers to have IMPCO’s high-quality, CNG system installed on the popular Isuzu NPR HD chassis near the vehicle’s assembly plant as a ship-through option ordered from any Isuzu dealership nationwide. This chassis is used in a variety of applications, from box trucks to landscaper bodies; the ship-through program will provide those fleets with the option of using a domestic fuel with minimum delay and complexity to their daily operations.—Jay Sandler, IMPCO Automotive Director of Sales
