DIXON, CA—Altec Industries recently began construction of a new plant in Dixon, Calif., that will allow the company to expand development and production of its Green Fleet utility vehicle product line.
“Altec is committed to sustainable solutions,” said Lee Styslinger III, Altec chairman and CEO. “That commitment to sustainability is reflected not only in the products we build, but also in the facilities where we build them. We are genuinely excited about expanding our capabilities and presence in California to better serve and support the growing needs of our customers on the West Coast.”
Altec received support for development of the new green-focused facility from two of its customers – Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) and Southern California Edison.
In addition, PG&E and Altec are partnering to develop technologically advanced Green Fleet utility vehicles that will be produced at the new facility. The green fleet vehicles will provide a safer work environment for utility crews, significantly reduce emissions, and lower vehicle operating costs while extending vehicle life, the company said.
Altec is a leading equipment and service provider for the electric utility, telecommunications, and contractor markets.
