Agility Fuel Systems and Cummins Inc announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership intended to improve the natural gas vehicle user experience, and to drive adoption of natural gas as a vehicle fuel for the heavy-duty truck and bus markets.
Under terms of the agreement, Cummins will also invest an undisclosed amount in Agility Fuel Systems’ equity.
The partnership includes technology development and integration of software and hardware between the natural gas engine and the onboard fuel storage and delivery system, to improve performance and uptime.
Additionally, Agility and Cummins will integrate their sales and aftermarket support and distribution networks, to further enhance the end-user experience. Customers will soon be able to have service performed and obtain replacement parts for their natural gas-powered equipment at authorized Cummins distributor and OEM truck dealer locations in the United States and Canada.
