Xos Inc., a technology company that provides fleet services, software solutions, and manufactures medium-duty and heavy-duty Class 5 through Class 8 battery-electric commercial vehicles, named The W.W. Williams Company as a pilot service provider in the state of Arizona.

W.W. Williams is a services provider that offers mechanical service and repair, power generation, and warehousing and logistics services.

“As part of the WheelTime Network, the nationwide service network for commercial trucks, W.W. Williams is a widely known and respected leader in the service industry,” said Andy Curtin, service director at Xos, in a news release. “We’re excited to bring on W.W. Williams as a pilot service provider, starting in Arizona, to provide our customers with world-class maintenance service and repair.”

As part of the agreement, W.W. Williams will provide maintenance service and repairs on Xos vehicles in regions of Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. W.W. Williams will also support Xos customers with an inventory of in-stock Xos service parts.

“We’re thrilled to work with Xos and start providing maintenance and repair services to their customers,” said Mike Houston, National Sales Manager for W.W. Williams. “Their innovative, battery-electric commercial vehicles represent the future of trucking, so it’s important for us to continue growing our offerings with experience working on electric trucks.”

Additionally, Xos announced a partnership with Thermo King in May of 2022, with the goal of jointly developing a 100% battery-electric refrigerated commercial vehicle prototype.

Originally known as Thor Trucks, Xos rebranded in 2019 to Xos Trucks. Earlier this year, it introduced new medium- and heavy-duty commercial electric truck models.
