Eden Prairie, MN (February 28, 2019) – Phillips and Temro Industries (PTI) today announced its participation in the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition being held March 18 – 21, 2019 in Atlanta, GA. PTI will exhibit its Zerostart® and Arctic Fox® brands of heating products, as well as its newest electric auxiliary power unit (eAPU) – the Idle Free® System Series 5000.
Zerostart and Arctic Fox products provide cold weather solutions for engine heating, fuel and fluid heating, and the Idle Free System Series 5000 has shown to keep drivers cooler longer than any other electric APU on the market.
When asked about the Idle Free Series 5000, Patrick Gray, maintenance process and systems manager for Paper Transport said, “We’ve been using the Idle Free Series 5000 since Spring and are very satisfied. It works exactly like Phillips & Temro said it would. Our drivers using the Series 5000 are pleased with how quickly it cools. In addition to higher cooling output, the start stop feature is handy when the APU batteries need to be charged. And because it mounts behind the cab, it frees up rail space.”
Jeff Martell, PTI’s Senior Product Development Engineer will be onsite in booth #2148 to answer technical questions posed by attendees and media.
“The trucking industry is a major contributor to the health and strength of our economy, and it is our goal to help the industry increase revenues, boost driver comfort and safety, and help maintain environmental responsibilities with the best products on the market,” said Tom Moser, President, Phillips & Temro Industries.
