Carmanah’s Power Systems Group is pleased to report that the company has successfully completed the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Member Verification Program (MVP). This verification program recognizes those members that have qualifying business practices in place and products that meet certain required government criteria.

Carmanah was announced as one of 26 qualifying manufacturers this quarter. Currently, there are only 271 NTEA-listed companies with MVP status.

Carmanah’s proprietary power solution products are sold under its Go Power!™ brand name. Go Power!™ products feature a wide variety of modified sine wave and pure sine wave inverters perfect for the utility truck market. For Carmanah, the MVP status provides an additional level of supplier credibity in the US national truck equipment market, where the Company currently provides mobile power systems and equipment as an aftermarket and OEM supplier. Carmanah can now include MVP identification on all of its marketing materials, advertisements, business cards, web sites, etc., that is targeted towards this market.

About the National Truck Equipment Association

Founded in 1964, the NTEA is the exclusive representative of the commercial truck body and equipment industry. Over 1,600 distributorships, manufacturing firms, suppliers and various industry-associated companies now belong.

The NTEA is headquartered in Detroit – a location that allows management and staff engineers to work directly with the major truck chassis manufacturers on product and specification changes. This close relationship strengthens the NTEA’s function as an information center and liaison between the chassis manufacturers, body and equipment manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, related industry firms, and end-users.
