Calgary, Alberta – Alternative Fuel Systems (AFS) of Calgary has now shipped over 20,000 engine controllers to original equipment manufacturers in India. The controllers are primarily used in light commercial vehicles.
“This sales level is a major milestone for AFS,” said Jim Perry, president and CEO. “We have stated that one of our main objectives is to grow the OEM electronics side of our business. By shipping our 20,000th engine controller to India late last week, we have demonstrated significant progress toward that goal. As well, shipments to customers in other countries for both OEM and aftermarket applications have also shown good growth.”
The controllers are used in small trucks, pickup trucks and passenger vans that use compressed natural gas (CNG) as their sole fuel. The significant price advantage of CNG over gasoline and diesel in many countries serves as an incentive for customers to buy CNG-fuelled vehicles.
“The volume of engine controller shipments to Tata Motors and to Mahindra & Mahindra has been growing over time, and we hope to see that trend continue,” Perry said. “In addition, we are working with other customers in India and other countries on various projects that we hope to see make the transition into production.”
