Las Vegas, NV – October 4, 2016 – ATA Management Conference & Exhibition - FlowBelow Aero Inc., the leading manufacturer of tractor-mounted aerodynamic products, today announced several major updates.
Update on Mexican Expansion
Today, FlowBelow is announcing a strategic partnership with a major Mexican distributor, Andromeda Business Solutions S.A. de C.V, to distribute FlowBelow Tractor AeroKit technology. “We are proud of our new relationship with Andromeda to supply FlowBelow’s tractor-mounted aerodynamic technology in Mexico.” Tractor AeroKits will immediately enhance the aerodynamics and fuel economy of thousands of existing semi-trucks. “Mexican carriers are demanding better fuel economy because of how critical the efficiency of their trucks is within a competitive market,” said Captain Fausto Velazquez, President of Andromeda Business Solutions.
Update on Canadian Expansion
In May 2016 FlowBelow announced a partnership with Groupe Trans-West out of Lachine, QC. Trans-West conducted extensive testing of FlowBelow product within its own fleet and through Canada’s PIT group, an esteemed transportation technology testing organization. Based on the test results, Trans-West implemented a fleet-wide adoption program to retrofit all trucks in the fleet. Following Trans-West several other major fleets in Canada have adopted FlowBelow technology. New FlowBelow distributors, dealers, and installers are now established in Manitoba, Quebec, and Ontario provinces to meet demand.
New tractor OEM developments
Meeting the demands of major truck manufacturers is no easy task. Over the past two years FlowBelow has completely realigned its supply chain in order to meet and exceed the demands of supplying major truck and trailer equipment manufacturers as a Tier 1 supplier.
FlowBelow announced earlier this year the addition of its patented ‘Quick-Release’ wheel cover as an option on the Freightliner Cascadia Evolution truck. Today, FlowBelow’s technology is featured on both the existing Cascadia Evolution and the New Cascadia which was unveiled in September.
At the ATA Management Conference this weekend, another major truck manufacturer, Kenworth, announced that the FlowBelow Tractor AeroKit will become a dealer-installed option on its most fuel efficient T680 package.
Outlook for 2017
FlowBelow is on track to be the standard aerodynamic spec for long-haul trucking fleets in North America. Through a comprehensive dealer network, it is now easier than ever for fleets to include FlowBelow on new truck orders. Earlier this year FlowBelow announced that large carriers such as CR England, Indian River, Trans-West, and other nationally recognized trucking companies have deployed FlowBelow technology on their fleets. The results being reported from FlowBelow’s customers has been consistent with the company’s claims. More exciting announcements, including new products for trucks, trailers, and large fleet adoptions are expected soon.
