PHILADELPHIA, PA and MONTREAL, QC – A Canadian engineering and research group for the North American trucking industry announced at the 2015 American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) Management Conference and Exhibition this week the opening of a U.S. office and a significant increase in its presence in the United States.
Performance Innovation Transport (PIT) Group is opening an office in Atlanta, GA and is adding the U.S. as the location for road testing of its technology certification process known as Energotest.
Using stringent SAE/TMC testing protocols, PIT Group will now hold two Energotest events in Canada and two in the U.S. each year.
“PIT Group has become the benchmark for precise, verified and unbiased data on the return on investment fleets can expect from green technologies in Canada,” said Yves Provencher, director of PIT Group. “With the continual need to improve competitiveness and the increase in environmental compliance restrictions, the demand for green technologies has never been stronger. Our U.S. office will enable us to offer the level of service and experience we’ve been providing Canadian fleets and that U.S. fleets expect.”
