Fresno, Calif.-based A-1’s 3,000th vehicle is a CNG shuttle bus for Sun Metro, converted at A-1’s new facility in Elkhart, Ind.

A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems (Booth 346) has just completed its 3,000th vehicle conversion. “Not many folks out there can display those types of numbers, and we think that really shows the depth of experience we have as an upfitter,” A-1 sales and business development manager Will Gutilla told Fleets & Fuels.

The 3,000 A-1 vehicle is a CNG-fueled, Ford E-450 cutaway chassis shuttle bus with 6.2-liter engine and five Type III fuel cylinders.

A-1 works with numerous gaseous fuel system and fuel tank suppliers, Gutilla says, noting that approximately 70% of its business is CNG, and 30% propane autogas.

“This is definitely a proud moment for our company, as we are also preparing to hand out 20-year service awards to several of our employees who have been with us since the beginning,” said A-1 chief Mark Gillio.
“That’s who this is really all about,” he said – “these guys who have dedicated so much of their time and energy in making our operation a success.”
