Alternative fuel station coming to Youngstown

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A natural gas fuel company is partnering with a local manufacturer to build an alternative gas station in Youngstown. 

Pennsylvania-based "O" Ring CNG Fuel Systems plans to work with Dearing Compressor on the construction of an alternative fuel station off of I-680 on Midlothian Boulevard.

The station will service large fleets and the public. 

Local supply of natural gas was a driving factor, in selecting a valley location.

"If you look at the tri-state area, if you look at Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, it's truly the epicenter of the next industrial revolution," Bob Beatty says, president of "O" Ring Fuel Systems.

The company plans to open the station in the second quarter of 2014.
