Bergstrom Inc. and Webasto Product North America announced that the Webasto Air Top 2000 ST, one of the industry's most popular auxiliary heaters, is available with Bergstrom's family of battery-powered NITE no-idle systems through Bergstrom's aftermarket distributors and truck dealers in the United States and Canada.
To celebrate the partnership, Bergstrom is giving away a destination vacation for one lucky NITE owner and one lucky NITE dealer. With the pairing of Bergstrom's battery-based cooling system and Webasto's air heater, truckers can keep their cab feeling "Just Right" no matter how hot or cold the outside temperature is. Dealers and end users who purchase a NITE system with a Webasto heater now through August 17, 2012, can register for the giveaway by entering their information on www.bergstrominc.com/vacation. The winner will be drawn the final day of the Great American Truck Show in Dallas, TX on August 25, 2012.
"The Webasto Air Top 2000 ST is a proven, reliable heater that responds to industry demands for fuel efficiency, A/C and heat combos, and fast return on investment," said Bill Gordon, Bergstrom vice president of sales, aftermarket, and NITE. "This pairing is 'just right' in terms of all-season performance and value for NITE system customers. We are pleased to add the Webasto heater to our excellent line of partner products."
As a battery-powered, no-idling system, each CARB-approved NITE system incorporates an independent battery power source to provide electric service for climate control. This helps drivers reduce emissions and comply with anti-idling laws.
CARB-approved, quiet and compact, the Webasto Air Top 2000 ST produces 7,000 Btu and can operate for 20 hours on a single gallon of fuel. It weighs 5.7 lbs, the lightest auxiliary heater in its class.
Packaging the two systems together delivers the convenience of managing heating and cooling with one integrated set of controls.
"This is a great opportunity for Bergstrom and Webasto to leverage our recognized strengths and give truck owners and truck drivers an efficient, effective combination of no-idle heating and cooling," said Mark Hickey, vice president of business development at Webasto.
