Worthington Acquires Trilogy’s CNG Fuel System Technology
Worthington Industries announced that its Pressure Cylinders segment has acquired certain assets of Trilogy Engineered Systems, a provider of fuel systems for heavy duty trucks. 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 a more complete fuel system portfolio for medium and heavy duty truck applications.
“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.”
Worthington says it is also working with Palmer Trucks, an established dealer network, to continue developing CNG technology that improves fuel economy and ultimately fleet profitability. Trilogy’s fuel systems assembly assets will be integrated into Worthington’s operations in Salt Lake City, Utah.
