New CNG Station Opening at Ford Truck Center in Kansas City
A new CNG station has opened at the Midway Ford Truck Center in Kansas City, Missouri, within Hunt Midwest’s Automotive Alley. After selling or modifying hundreds of alternate fuel vehicles, Midway Ford Truck Center partnered with Clean Energy to open its first CNG fueling station built collaboratively with a Ford dealership. To further serve demand for CNG-fueled vehicles, Midway Ford has announced plans to build and staff a dedicated Alt-Fuel installation and repair facility located on its 26-acre campus.
“This new CNG facility helps fuel the rapid growth taking place in Automotive Alley and the Kansas City auto industry,” said Ora Reynolds, president and CEO of Hunt Midwest. “With the ongoing success of Ford’s F-150 truck and Transit commercial van, and continued demand for CNG fuel and vehicle modifications, Automotive Alley is gearing up to welcome new tenants.”
After Ford announced plans to pump more than $1 billion into its Kansas City Assembly Plant in 2011, the automaker chose Hunt Midwest Business Center for its North American Vehicle Logistics Facility (NAVLOS). Automotive Alley is now home to more than a dozen Ford suppliers and upfitters offering more than 7,000 staging spots for Ford vehicles made in Kansas City.
