VMAC has released the latest UNDERHOOD air compressors and Direct-Transmission Mounted (DTM) PTO-Driven systems for 2019 trucks and vans. VMAC will offer over 25 different systems engineered to fit with 2019 trucks and vans by Ford, RAM, GM / Chevrolet and Mercedes / Freightliner.

"We're continually expanding our vehicle-integrated air compressor and multi-power system product lines to meet our customers' needs," says Barry Fitzgerald, VMAC's Engineering Manager. "With our release of over 25 systems, we're ensuring our customers have access to the UNDERHOOD Air Compressors and DTM PTO-Driven Systems they need as they upgrade their service truck fleets to the latest 2019 models."

"UNDERHOOD Air Compressors for trucks and vans are favoured in the industry for being lightweight and space-saving, while delivering powerful on-demand air in any climate," explains Mike Pettigrew, VMAC's marketing manager. "UNDERHOOD is the best choice for customers who need to save space and weight on their vehicles and minimize the maintenance required on their equipment."

In addition to UNDERHOOD Air Compressors for trucks, VMAC manufacturers the only UNDERHOOD Air Compressor specifically engineered for commercial vans. In 2016, VMAC expanded their vehicle-integrated product line to include the world's first Direct-Transmission mounted PTO driven air compressor, the DTM70. Then in 2018, the DTM70-H was released, producing air and hydraulic power at the same time.

"By continually expanding our product line, VMAC is keeping its promise to be the leader in mobile compressed air innovation," notes Fitzgerald.
