Propane-Gasoline Conversion Systems Experts Alliance Autopropane and Maxquip Establish Canada-Wide Partnership

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) - Rock Boulianne and Marquis Grégoire Jr., co-presidents of Alliance Autopropane Inc., are pleased to announce that they have signed a long-term agreement with Canadian company Maxquip. This agreement will make Maxquip an integral distributor of conversion equipment to Alliance Autopropane's growing network.

"With this partnership, we want to work together to promote conversion to hybrid propane/gasoline systems on a national scale. Our parts will benefit from Maxquip's excellent distribution network, and we can offer consumers accessible and affordable systems," explained Mr. Boulianne.

"We are pleased to enter into an agreement with a professional and highly respected distributor in the propane industry. On our end, we have acquired significant expertise in vehicle conversion and are happy to make it available to residents of other provinces, who can enjoy substantial fuel cost savings from using propane vehicles," added Mr. Grégoire.

The agreement will also have a number of benefits for the environment. In fact, converting a gasoline-burning vehicle to hybrid propane/gasoline reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 25%. As well, Quebec's 2030 Energy Policy, which was announced on April 7, 2016, contains a measure that aims to encourage conversion of transportation vehicles already on the roads to fuels with lower carbon content, namely propane.

"We are very respectful of the energy and professionalism that the Alliance Autopropane team have demonstrated in growing the Autopropane business in a sustainable manner. With this partnership, our companies will leverage our mutual strengths in delivering autopropane conversion systems that are reliable and cost effective to the industry across Canada" states Cameron Stewart of Maxquip.
