APG Adds Distributor In Colombia
American Power Group Corp. announced its subsidiary, American Power Group Inc. (APG), has entered a distribution agreement with Organizacion Equitel SA (Equitel), a Cummins engine dealer in Colombia.
Equitel will become the in-country authorized dealer and certified installer of Algona, Iowa-based APG’s dual-fuel engine technology. In addition, APG said it received an evaluation order from one of Equitel’s business units, Cummins de los Andes, to convert three heavy-duty trucks and two cement mixers to operate on APG’s turbocharged natural gas dual fuel system. The evaluation period is anticipated to be completed during the last quarter of 2014. The end customer, a large cement company with a presence in more than 50 countries, previously placed an order for 38 APG vehicular conversion systems with APG’s Dominican Republic dealer.
“We are pleased to add another strong partner to our growing international dealer/installer network,” said Lyle Jensen, American Power Group Corp.’s chief executive officer. “Equitel is a well-recognized and well respected company and the leader in sales and service of primary and emergency back-up power generation systems in Colombia.”
