A Cost-Effective Approach to Sustainability

July 26, 2023

As fleet owners and work truck operators navigate evolving industry standards, they are looking for cost-effective solutions that can help them meet jobsite and operation requirements while future-proofing their fleets. One solution that is gaining traction in the industry for its carbon and noise reduction qualities is electrification.

While the benefits of electrification are becoming more broadly recognized and embraced across the industry, the cost of entry when it comes to electric equipment may mean it is out of reach for many operations. One opportunity to help bridge the gap between the cost of electrifying a fleet and integrating electric equipment in the more immediate term is retrofitting.

Retrofitting is the addition of a component or accessory that was not fitted during manufacturing. For work truck and material handling equipment manufacturers like Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Inc. (IMT), retrofitting provides a scalable, cost-effective solution for customers looking to incorporate electrified components into an existing chassis. As more of the industry undergoes an evolution rooted in the need for sustainable solutions, IMT is developing electric and hybrid systems that will enable end users to tackle jobs efficiently while meeting increasingly stringent environmental and worksite regulations.
