Vehicle manufacturer steadily ramping manufacturing capability and expanding component supply base to meet increased demand for 2013 spurred by more aggressive government incentives in California, New York and Chicago
STOCKTON, Calif., Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EVI, a producer of Alternative Energy Vehicles (AEVs), is proud to announce significant and early 2013 gains in the medium and heavy duty truck manufacturing industry sectors.
"This is an exciting time for EVI, and consumers worldwide", noted Ricky Hanna, President and CEO of EVI. "We're proud to provide a commercial zero emission solution for today's goods movement industry that sets the stage for stable and sustainable fleet management for decades to come."
Most recently, EVI was recognized by Governor Brown for manufacturing and delivering over 15 trucks a month for UPS's landmark 100-vehicle purchase order. EVI has manufactured and successfully deployed 50 of those medium duty trucks to date and employs roughly 60 staff in its Stockton California facility.
Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) has joined forces with EVI in an effort to Co-Promote its all-electric Walk-In Van, which is built on an FCCC chassis. As part of this effort, FCCC and EVI will jointly work together to target electric vehicle compatible fleets. FCCC will display EVI's Walk-In Van in Freightliner's booth at the Association for The Work Truck Industry (NTEA) trade show next month.
"FCCC has been a longtime leader in developing alternative-fuel propulsion chassis, and we see our work with EVI in the development of all-electric products as an important area of focus and opportunity," said Bob Harbin, President of FCCC. "As you can see, EVI has experienced strong interest in this product, and we are excited about what the future holds for the development and expansion of all-electric products in the light- and medium-duty truck market."
Several states including California and New York and most recently the City of Chicago have begun offering much needed deployment incentives to companies willing to be early adopters of electric medium duty trucks. EVI, realizing a rich market opportunity, is also currently considering expanding its enterprise in to the Midwest over the long-term so we can continue growing our customer base. The company is excited to be working with several industry leading companies actively looking to expand their electric vehicle fleets.
John Boesel, President and Chief Executive Officer of CALSTART noted that states with policies in place which incentivize clean transportation technology are rapidly reaping the environmental and economic rewards involved. "It's heartening to see companies like EVI which take full advantage of these financial incentives succeed on so many levels. Indeed, they are the ones setting the stage for a clean transportation future."
As EVI and the industry continue to grow, the company seeks the best innovative products at the most competitive pricing. Accordingly, EVI will be inviting all perspective vendors to submit a competitive bid for the products listed below:
Motors Controllers Charging systems EVSE (Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment) Die Casting and Metal fabrication Details of Bid process
On March 1, 2013 all current suppliers will receive the open bid process invitation and anticipated 2013 product volumes.
