Fontaine Modification Vocational Services has opened a new modification center in Avon Lake, Ohio, to provide modifications for Ford F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks. The facility is located across the street from Ford’s Ohio Assembly Plant, where F-650/F-750 production moved from Mexico last summer.
“Fontaine has put significant effort into developing modifications specifically for the all-new F-650/F-750 platform, including an exclusive tractor package for beverage fleets that we developed in conjunction with our sister company Fontaine Fifth Wheel and Ford Motor Company,” says Steve Boyer, president of Fontaine Vocational Services. “Our new Avon Lake location will enable us to complete these modifications efficiently, taking advantage of our ship-through agreement with Ford to provide customers with their vehicles quickly and efficiently.”
In addition to the beverage tractor modification, Fontaine will use its new modification center to install all-wheel drive systems, make wheelbase changes and perform CNG tank upfits on the F-650/F-750. Customers also can work with Fontaine to develop custom modifications for their specific applications. Fontaine’s ship-through agreement with Ford (31V) allows modifications to be completed without any additional shipping cost to the customer.
Other locations in the Fontaine Vocational Services network of modification centers include Charlotte, N.C.; Dublin, Va.; Garland, Texas; Springfield, Ohio; and Williamstown, W.Va.
