Power Solutions International, Inc. said Wednesday the company has reached an agreement with AMP Holding, Inc. to supply powertrain options for all of AMP’s Workhorse Chassis models.

AMP’s chassis are used in a variety of Class 3 – 6 on-highway applications, most commonly for medium-duty delivery trucks.

PSI says it will equip the chassis models with fuel-flexible, certified powertrains utilizing GM 4.8-liter and 6.0-liter engines capable of running on gasoline, compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane (LPG).

“This AMP agreement marks another significant step for PSI in developing its on-highway program,” said PSI President and CEO Gary Winemaster.

Winemaster says the company began moving beyond its industrial focus with the introduction of a newly-designed 8.8-liter big block designed for on-highway applications in 2012. This year, the company continued its progress with a multi-year supply agreement with General Motors to sell 4.8-liter and 6.0-liter engines for on-highway use.

The agreement with AMP enables PSI to offer alternatively-fueled, certified powertrains for the full range of Class-4 through Class-7 applications, including delivery trucks and municipal bus fleets.

AMP Holdings acquired Workhorse Custom Chassis, LLC from Navistar in March of this year. The acquisition of the Workhorse brand and assembly plant in Union City, Indiana made the company an OEM of medium-duty truck chassis in the 10,200 to 25,800 GVW class.

“With propane, CNG, gasoline and electric options, AMP has positioned itself as a chassis OEM able to provide fleet customers with purpose built solutions for their specific needs and requirements,” said Martin Rucidlo, AMP’s President.
