A press release from New York-based Clean Vehicle Solutions LLC:

WEST NYACK, N.Y., Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Clean Vehicle Solutions, LLC, announces its move to new, larger facilities to accommodate unprecedented growth in the demand for natural gas fueling systems in passenger vehicles as well as conversions of Class 2 - Class 8 trucks.

The new facility, located in West Nyack, NY, is a state of the art facility designed specifically to convert traditional gas/diesel fueled vehicles to CNG fueled systems and, most importantly, according to Dean Sloane, Managing Director of Clean Vehicle Solutions, "The establishment of a new global headquarters and state-of-the-art production facilities provides us with the ability to deliver a wide range of vehicles and manage production far more efficiently than ever before."

According to Mr. Sloane, "We completely outgrew the facility we were using in East Brunswick, years ahead of schedule. Our new West Nyack, NY offices and production plant will better position Clean Vehicle Solutions, LLC to escalate the production of all types of CNG vehicles for fleets reducing costs and environmental impact as well as helping to build the infrastructure critical to keeping these vehicles on the road."

Vice President of Marketing Pat Charla is extremely pleased with this next step in the expansion of Clean Vehicle Solutions, LLC. "With our new facilities, Clean Vehicle Solutions has the corporate infrastructure, partnerships and collaborative relationships to compete on a much broader playing field," Charla said. She continued, "Once you outgrow the space you are in, your delivery lead times become unmanageable. Now, with an annual production capacity of more than 5,000 vehicles in all categories, including large trucks, Clean Vehicle Solutions is a company that is in a unique position to provide an extremely competitive one-stop source for complete CNG solutions, to fleets looking to leverage CNG to improve profitability and environmental stewardship."

Both Sloane and Charla are gratified by the progress Clean Vehicle Solutions has made. According to Mr. Sloane, in this new, developing CNG vehicle marketplace, "We have developed and built relationships up and down the CNG supply chain, combined with our new, significantly larger corporate headquarters and production capacity, Clean Vehicle Solutions will provide our existing and new customers with the very best CNG solutions possible."
