Texas-based firm will retail and develop a distribution network for all ETS products in Central United States
MT. VERNON, New York, December 30, 2004 On December 29, 2004 Electric Transportation Solutions (ETS) of Mt. Vernon, N.Y., and EV Tech of Addison, Texas signed an exclusive distribution agreement that enable ETS to sell directly into the Central United States.
ETS launched a virtual department store of electric vehicles in mid-October. In addition to its website, www.electrictransport.net , ETS offers consulting services aimed at ultimately supplying electric vehicles with power from the wind and sun.
EV Tech, www.evtech.us, primarily a Wavecrest electric bike retailer, was founded in 1996 by Doug Canfield, after working on controls and drive systems for all types of Electric Vehicles since 1985. Bob Smith joined EVTech in 2000 after a distinguished career as a naval aviator retiring as a rear Admiral. Bob served as project director of the B2 Stealth Bomber program and was vice president of EV Power before joining EVTech.
EV Tech works as consultants on numerous projects including battery electric, hybrid electric, and fuel cell electric vehicles.
"EV Tech is very excited to work with ETS as a premier distributor of all its' products," said EV Tech President Doug Canfield. "While most electric vehicle retailers sell only scooters or bikes, ETS has such a diverse array of products and also offers renewable energy consulting. There are just not many companies out there offering all of these products under one roof."
"Our company has always been asked to sell kid scooters, on-road sitting scooters and other products that we just did not have to offer," added Canfield. "When we started working with ETS, it just made sense to work with a company that offers such an array of quality electric products and services."
"ETS is very excited to have EV Tech as part of the ETS team," said Leitman. "Their knowledge and understanding of the electric vehicle marketplace is extraordinary. We always want to have people working with ETS that are true leaders in the industry. EV Tech stands for that true leadership."
EV Tech will be retailing ETS products within the Central United States and marketing those products on their website within the next two weeks. EV Tech will also recruit and distribute ETS products to additional retailers in the region.
