TruStar Energy, a developer of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations, has appointed Scott Edelbach as general manager in charge of the company’s construction and service operations.
In 2009, Edelbach founded Vocational Energy, a company focused on developing CNG stations for vocational fleets. In 2012, Fortistar acquired Vocational Energy, re-named it TruStar Energy, and expanded the company’s focus and new offerings, including long-term fuel provider agreements, station and vehicle financing, and the development of TruStar Energy branded stations in high-traffic corridors throughout the US.
Prior to starting Vocational Energy, Edelbach worked at McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing Co. for close to two decades. Rising through the ranks, he finished his career at McNeilus as vice president of the Refuse Division, generating $320 million in refuse truck sales.
TruStar notes that the benefits of switching to CNG are compelling: natural gas costs approximately 46% less than diesel, runs about 30% cleaner, and dramatically reduces vehicle noise. In addition to being a cleaner, cheaper, and quieter alternative to oil, CNG is a solution to reliance on foreign fuel.
