Bergstrom Inc., a designer and provider of climate systems to the commercial vehicle industry, announced the production of its 10,000th NITE (No-Idle Thermal Environment) unit, a battery-powered no-idling solution. Bergstrom began producing NITE units in 2004; the 10,000th unit, a NITE Plus system, was assembled in late February at the company’s flagship manufacturing plant in Rockford, Ill.
“We are incredibly proud of this achievement as well as our legacy and contributions to reducing harmful emissions and helping improve driver comfort on the road,” says Bill Gordon, national director of aftermarket and director of global marketing. “This is a testament to the hard work of everyone on the NITE team and our dedication to innovative solutions that help drivers address the evolving emissions regulations and fluctuating fuel prices.”
In January, the company introduced NITE Plus; combined with an optional compact air-heating system, NITE Plus is designed to offer drivers year-round comfort. Last month, Bergstrom partnered with Kohler Power Systems to offer a hybrid power system that combined the NITE Plus system with a Kohler DC power unit.
