March 19, 2013 – Venchurs Vehicle Systems—a CNG converter and QVM (qualified vehicle modifier) for Ford—announced its new partnership with Knapheide at the Work Truck Show 2013, which will allow Venchurs to offer CNG conversions, service bodies and other betterments for Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks.

Venchurs will also benefit from Knapheide’s relationship with Sortimo (a global player in van upfits and organization) to provide customized storage solutions for the 2014 Transit Connect and Transit.

“We want to meet all the needs of our fleet customer, and that means offering more than just the CNG conversion,” said Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs Vehicle Systems. “Thus far we have been able to offer betterments such as suspensions, bumpers, wheels and tires… but this partnership with Knapheide allows us to round out our portfolio, offering service bodies and customized storage solutions.”

“We’re excited about expanding our CNG offerings with Venchurs Vehicle Systems,” said Chris Weiss, VP of engineering at Knapheide. “It gives us the opportunity to provide quality and cost-effective solutions to meet our customer’s needs.”
