American Power Group Appoints Scherbon Consolidated, Inc. as Its Certified Stationary Installer and Authorized Dealer for New England

LYNNFIELD, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2014) - American Power Group Corporation (OTCQB: APGI) announced that its subsidiary, American Power Group, Inc. ("APG"), has signed a Certified Installer and Dealer Agreement with Scherbon Consolidated, Inc. of Amesbury, Massachusetts ("Scherbon") for training and certification to sell, install and service APG's Stationary Dual Fuel Conversions in New England.

Scherbon Consolidated, Inc. (www.scherbon.com) has been designing, installing and maintaining wastewater pumping stations and emergency power-generation equipment for over forty years throughout New England.

Scott Scherbon, Founder and CEO of Scherbon, stated, "We've been keeping both prime power and backup generators running for many years in New England and are excited about the opportunity to bring APG's dual fuel upgrade solution to the market. As CNG and LNG become more and more available here in New England, we see many opportunities for dual fuel retrofits both in applications for prime power and for extending run time in backup power situations."

With over four decades of industrial generator sales and service experience, Scherbon is the perfect partner to introduce our new aftermarket dual fuel solution to the many long-term relationships they have created throughout New England.
