Bergstrom Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of climate systems to the commercial vehicle industry, announced a new partnership with Fontaine Modification, a post-production truck modification company that services OEMs, dealers and fleets throughout North America. As a result of the partnership, Fontaine Modification has also been named an approved installer of Bergstrom climate control systems.
Fontaine Modification, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, takes trucks directly from the assembly line to facilities for professional and custom product installations, increasing the speed to market, and saving time and money for the owner.
"We're excited to be working with such a respected company in the truck industry," said Bill Gordon, vice president Aftermarket and NITE at Bergstrom. "This will create new opportunities across North America and enable our customers to have a high-quality installation prior to the delivery of the truck."
Fontaine has more than 30 years of experience in engineering and modifications, as well as in-depth knowledge of OEM platforms and cost-saving strategies. The company has eight modification centers throughout Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Georgia and North Carolina.
"We are happy to begin this quality partnership with Bergstrom," said Bill O'Shea, director of fleet services at Fontaine Modification. "Fontaine's long-standing experience, engineering expertise and knowledge are valuable assets when installing Bergstrom products and systems at our modification centers."
The new partnership with Fontaine adds to Bergstrom's already impressive roster of roughly 439 distributors and service centers.
