Check out our new logo!
As we continue to grow and change as a company, adding new offerings and divisions, we wanted a sleek modern logo that our customers can recognize and trust regardless of which division or product you’re working with! Whether you’re a commercial bus customer, school bus customer, truck equipment customer, or emergency lighting / upfit customer, we will proudly use this logo and create brand familiarity. We hope you like it as much as we do!

Renewable Propane

North Central has our eye on the future of transportation and how vehicles are powered. In terms of alternative fuels, so far propane has been a slam dunk for many of our customers and more are talking about it everyday! It handles our climate very well and there’s not a substantial amount of additional monies required for infrastructure.

We have recently learned about a relatively new fuel that is safe, reliable, economical, and produces carbon intensity as low as zero. It’s called RENEWABLE PROPANE.
Renewable propane:
• Comes from renewable sources
• Is methane-free
• Has a carbon intensity as low as zero

We believe that renewable propane has a place as part of the solution for an energy-efficient future. It is a way to use less energy and embrace sustainable practices to reduce — and ultimately eliminate — our carbon footprint. By 2030, we believe that renewable propane — along with conventional propane and other innovative blends — will be America’s most widely available, affordable, carbon-neutral energy solution. It’s a vital part of an energy policy benefiting climate and health in a fiscally responsible way.
