NGVi Partners

Partners
part·nersˈpärtnərs
noun
Two or more people or organizations that combine their abilities to work together towards a common goal.

At NGVi, we believe natural gas is the most superior transportation fuel available…period.  We’ve spent the last 30 years dedicated to helping develop a successful North American market and helping our fellow industry members—NGVi Partners—do the same.

Over two decades ago, we launched the NGVi Partners program (formerly known as the NGVi Sponsor program) to leverage our 25,000+ contact NGV user database, education efforts and marketing expertise to help our partners achieve their business development goals.   

We are proud to be affiliated with our NGVi Partners—the leading companies in the natural gas vehicle industry— true believers in natural gas as a transportation fuel and product innovators.

Here’s what NGVi Partners say about the Partners Program.

“Parker consistently looks for ways to expand customer awareness of our brand and our products. The NGVi Partner Program has been a very effective way for us to do just that by reaching new audiences with a variety of educational efforts. We are looking forward to continued work with NGVi in the future.”

–Steve Duricky, Global Platform Manager – Industrial, Parker Hannifin Corporation

 

“In the recent educational webinar held on our behalf, NGVi introduced Oasis to more new prospects than we ever expected. We’ve concluded the NGVi Partner Program is the way to go for us in the future.”
