FORT WORTH, Texas (May 2, 2023) – Hillwood announces recent lease renewal and expansion with Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies, further expanding their alternative fuel technology footprint in AllianceTexas and the North Texas region. Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies manufactures Cummins-branded natural gas fuel delivery systems at their facility in AllianceTexas for the North American commercial vehicle market.
“We are proud to be a leader in renewable natural gas (RNG) in the commercial vehicle industry and continue to support the intermediate and long-term growth potential of RNG vehicles due to the environmental and economic benefits, imminent regulatory requirements and corporate ESG goals,” said Mike Zimmerman, General Manager, Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies. “With our newly expanded space, we are better able to meet the growing demand for natural gas fuel systems as well as innovate and bring new products to market to support a wide variety of customers,” Zimmerman added.
When powered by RNG, using methane collected from organic waste as the primary fuel source, engines can be credited with a neutral to negative carbon index, resulting in net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at or below zero. Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies is expanding its operations to include an additional 50% of manufacturing space and will now occupy nearly 160,000 square feet in AllianceTexas’ Gateway 57 building at 1051 Republic Drive, Roanoke, Texas.
“Hillwood’s commitment to convene leaders in logistics and supply chain innovation and alternative fuel solutions, here at AllianceTexas, is showcased by our enthusiastic reception of Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies expansion,” said Sam Rhea, director of industrial leasing at Hillwood. “By offering a variety of CNG fuel system configurations, Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies is well-positioned to meet the needs of fleets at AllianceTexas and beyond who have adopted natural gas technology."
Hillwood, the developer of the 27,000-acre master-planned, mixed-use AllianceTexas development, recently established the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ) in North Texas. The AllianceTexas MIZ is leading smart infrastructure deployment to create a robust ecosystem for commercializing new technologies across the supply chain.
