Altec Inc. announced a strategic alliance agreement with ZeroRPM Inc. to provide high-efficiency work truck solutions to the electric utility, telecommunications and construction industries. Altec and ZeroRPM will provide enhanced idle mitigation and hybrid systems on work trucks to provide customers with improved fuel consumption and reduced tailpipe emissions.
"Our customers look to Altec to create solutions that help them meet their fleet electrification and sustainability requirements," said Lee Styslinger III, Altec Chairman and CEO. "Partnering with an innovative company like ZeroRPM will allow us to enhance our existing Green Fleet offerings and expand the range of work truck solutions we provide to the industry."
ZeroRPM develops idle mitigation systems and hybrid technology products for the public safety, fire, ambulance, security and utility markets.
Altec currently provides custom-built work trucks with alternative energy and hybrid features. For example, Altec is one of the companies working with PG&E on the Class 5 plug-in hybrid utility truck that was unveiled in November 2014.
