INDIANAPOLIS – March 4, 2015 –  As it enters its first full year of production, the propane-autogas S2G chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. is demonstrating its capabilities for additional applications at this week’s Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

FCCC debuted the S2G at the 2014 Work Truck Show with an initial focus on marketing the truck to the propane delivery segment, where it’s received strong interest and heavy initial orders. FCCC is using this year’s Work Truck show to show that propane marketers are just the beginning when it comes to potential applications for the chassis, with the first-ever box-truck version of the S2G on display at the FCCC booth (4347) at NTEA. In addition, an S2G unit outfitted with a flatbed and crane on its back is on display in the Propane Education and Research Council’s booth to further demonstrate the unit’s application versatility.

More than mere prototype, FCCC completed the sale of its first in-use box truck S2G for a specialty manufacturer in California.

RH Peterson, a manufacturer of specialty fireplaces and outdoor grills based in City of Industry, CA, took delivery of the first box truck version of the S2G late in 2014, using the truck for product delivery throughout Southern California.

“We are very excited to see the growth of S2G into additional applications,” said Mike Stark, product manager for FCCC. “We’ve believed all along that other applications and industries would be just as excited about the S2G and its unique benefits as propane distributors have been, so it’s inspiring to see that vision starting to become reality.”
