Amerit Fleet Solutions partnered with ZEVx to electrify vehicles by providing BEV (battery electric vehicle) fleet vehicle conversions and post conversion warranty support throughout North America, according to a company statement.
As a ZEVx Authorized Service Partner (ASP), Amerit Fleet Solutions will be trained and certified to ZEVx standards for the Athena program, which provides combustion engine to electric conversion and on-going support of Class 2-4 commercial vehicles. Athena brings new life to existing assets, uses trusted and proven industry components, and is typically completed in a one to two day turnaround in a certified shop.
Dan Williams, CEO of Amerit Fleet Solutions noted: "As part of our commitment to facilitate and support rapid adoption of EVs across the US, Amerit Fleet Solutions is pleased to partner with technology innovators such as ZEVx to bring low-cost electric vehicle solutions to commercial fleets. Our partnership with ZEVx complements our comprehensive strategy for providing industry leading EV Services by tapping into the deep technical expertise and many years of experience our staff has in fleet vehicle service and support."
During the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, Amerit Fleet Solutions announced it is partnering with electric vehicle manufacturers to set up programs for servicing electric vehicles: the Amerit EV Anywhere nationwide service program and EV Ready technician training program.
In December of 2020, private equity firm Brightstar Capital Partners has acquired a majority stake in Amerit Fleet Solutions, with an expansion strategy designed to help the company match e-commerce demands.
"Amerit Fleet Solutions' is ideally suited to provide nationwide support to our fleet customers. This partnership helps accelerate Amerit's move into EV services while also bringing immediate scale and support capabilities to our customers," said Michael Mayfield, SVP of ZEVx Services and Support. "The synergies between our Companies will be easily developed, enhanced, and continuously managed to ensure a seamless service experience."
