A North American energy company had a need for vehicle upfitting on their pickup truck fleets in various locations in Alberta and British Colombia. The upfitting service was to be coupled with compressed natural gas (CNG) bifuel conversions.

Hitec was awarded both the CNG bifuel conversion contact and upfitting contact, given Hitec’s ability to provide turnkey fleet solutions.
To the surprise and pleasure of the energy company, Hitec’s upfitting costs were 15% less and the delivery time was up to 70% less than their previous suppliers, who were Ford or GM dealers.

Hitec’s focused team was able to have vehicles upfitted within two (2) days, whereas the energy company’s previous supplier could take up to fourteen (14) days.

Hitec was able to work directly with the energy company’s leasing company to ensure seamless logistics and on-site delivery of vehicles.
