Saratoga Springs, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 17, 2017
American Natural Gas (“ANG”), a premier distributor of alternative motor fuels, and an operating subsidiary of HC2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HCHC), announced today the comprehensive modernization of 18 recently-acquired compressed natural gas (“CNG”) fueling stations across the Midwest, Southwest, and West Coast.
The extensive upgrades include: Rebuilt compressors to improve reliability and add remote access controls and 24-hour surveillance systems; New Bennett Crind dispensers at seven of the locations with NGV1 and NGV2 nozzles for exact temperature compensation; Upgraded IT systems to support remote monitoring; and upgraded POS systems for a seamless customer experience.
In tandem with the station upgrades, ANG also unveiled a new corporate website, http://www.AmericanNaturalGas.com, which features an interactive Station Locator Map and a personalized email and text messaging alert system for customers that will help ensure that every user is well informed about any changes at a station, planned lane closures, etc.
“Based on driver feedback, problem-solving with our partners, and sourcing the most powerful equipment available, we have completely transformed these fueling stations. Coupled with our new web-based alerts system, we believe we are raising the bar on customer service in the CNG industry,” said Drew West, Chief Executive Officer of ANG. “We encourage everyone to check out the most beautiful, powerful, and reliable network of CNG stations in the country by visiting our new corporate website and interactive map.”
West continued, “CNG is the best choice for those in the transportation industry that want to adopt a reliable, ultra-clean-burning technology. And with exciting changes on the horizon such as renewable natural gas with a 115% reduction in overall emissions and the new Cummins Westport zero emissions CNG engines, we’re seeing demand dramatically increase.”
“As anyone in the CNG industry knows, the difference is in the fueling experience, and these stations now represent the state of the art in the industry,” said Brent Tesla, Vice President of Operations at ANG. “Our maintenance and operations team was involved in every step of the modernization process to ensure every detail was considered, and that these stations will surpass our customers’ expectations.”
The upgraded stations were recently acquired by ANG through the separate purchases of Constellation CNG, LLC, formerly a subsidiary of Constellation, and Questar Fueling Company, a subsidiary of Questar Corporation.
