Worthington Acquires Trilogy’s CNG Fuel System Technology
Worthington Industries Inc.’s Pressure Cylinders segment has acquired certain assets of Indianapolis-based Trilogy Engineered Systems, a compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems designer-manufacturer for heavy duty trucks. “Trilogy’s technology and fuel system models complement our existing CNG fuel systems offering,” said Andrew Billman, president of the Worthington Industries Pressure Cylinders business.
“This acquisition accelerates the opportunity for growth in our alternative fuels business and supports our commitment to provide reliable high quality alternative fuel tanks and systems. It also increases our opportunity to partner with Trilogy’s established network of dealers and service centers, and provide value through the supply chain.”
Trilogy’s extended-range hybrid back of cab models and vocational rail mount models complement Worthington’s current top of body models and enable Worthington to provide an innovative fuel system portfolio for medium and heavy duty truck applications. Trilogy offers back of cab and rail mount configurations in a variety of sizes.
“We are also pleased to work with Palmer Trucks and an established dealer network, to continue developing CNG technology that improves fuel economy, and ultimately fleet profitability and further CNG adoption in on-highway and vocational markets,” said Billman. Palmer is a dealer/service center and one of the founding members of Trilogy.
Trilogy’s fuel systems assembly assets will be integrated into Worthington’s Salt Lake City, Utah operation.
