“Alkane has entered the game in the first minute of the first quarter. This heavyweight division has basically just begun…I expect Alkane to be a familiar name to fleet managers soon,” said Steve Newman.

Alkane Truck Company, an alternative fuel truck manufacturer headquartered in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is in the business of building clean-burning trucks and Humvee-style vehicles. The company’s class 7, propane-powered, cab-over truck was recently promoted at the DeKalb County Propane Autogas Show. Georgia Gas Distributors, Inc., in conjunction with Georgia Propane Gas Association, hosted the show on June 22 at the Dekalb County Sanitation Division in Decatur, GA.
The event highlighted the latest advances in propane autogas technology and featured several companies across the country that specialize in alternative fuel use in transportation and trucking. The purpose of the event was to present the latest generation of vehicle platforms and the benefits of propane versus other alternative fuels and gasoline-diesel. Vendors displayed vehicles for viewing and were readily available to answer attendee’s questions. Presentations also resolved many questions about Georgia tax incentives for medium and heavy-duty Vehicles.
Specifically, in the state of Georgia, tax incentives include a $20,000 credit for the purchase of a class 7 truck and a $12,000 credit for Alkane’s Humvee-style Dominator™. Also, on the Federal side, owners of alternative fuel vehicles are awarded a tax credit of 36 cents per gallon just for using either type of clean-burning fuel, whether LPG or CNG.
“Alkane has entered the game in the first minute of the first quarter. This heavyweight division has basically just begun…I expect Alkane to be a familiar name to fleet managers soon,” said Steve Newman, Program Manager/Alternative Fuels for Georgia Gas Distributors, Inc.
Alkane received DOT compliance in the fall of 2015 for its class 7, cab-over trucks and they are now taking orders from their various dealer locations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. “This is a one-of-a kind truck platform,” said Steve Rayborn, VP of Global Sales for Alkane. “We are very proud of this truck and also in the fact that it is the only propane-powered, cab-over in this weight class (26,000GVW to 33,000GVW) in the country.”
“Alkane Truck Company provides an excellent solution to companies that require a heavy-weight hauler with the ability to operate on alternative fuels,” said Newman. “Going green and saving money is a no-brainer, but this vehicle, for its size, also turns on a dime. The 55-degree turn radius reduces risk and that makes deliveries in concentrated areas much easier. I was amazed,” he added.
Alkane Truck Company continues to expand its brand awareness and was just recently added to the list of vendor suppliers of a major international beverage company.

When the crowdfunding effort is funded, the company intends on applying for an over-the-counter (OTCQX) offering, after which they will apply for placement on the NASDAQ. This will open up the company’s shares to a much larger pool of investors.
