Surgenor Truck Group locations in Kingston and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, are now both Mack Trucks certified electric vehicle (EV) dealers and ready to service and support the Mack LR Electric refuse model.

"Congratulations to Surgenor for investing in electrification and achieving EV-certified status at both of these locations," says Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. "Mack customers in Kingston and Ottawa can expect the same level of comprehensive support for EVs that they do for all Mack products. We are proud that so many of our dealers our working with us to achieve EV certification so they are ready to meet the needs of transportation as it evolves toward the future."

Mack dealers choosing to become EV-certified must meet stringent safety, infrastructure, charging, training, and tooling requirements. Each dealer rooftop that is EV-certified also must make infrastructure changes, but Mack executives met regularly with Surgenor leadership to ensure a smooth transition.

Surgenor Truck Group in Kingston has 10 technicians, two of whom are certified EV technicians. Surgenor's Ottawa site has 16 technicians, with two being certified EV techs. Both locations have one service bay dedicated to battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). Surgenor has installed Heliox fast DC 50 kW chargers at both sites.

"Surgenor is ready and pleased to be part of the evolution of transportation toward electrification," says Mike Gallant, general manager of Surgenor Kingston. "Many of our customers have made inquiries into electric vehicles and the LR Electric in particular, and we are excited to be leading this movement along with Mack Trucks."

The Mack LR Electric may be fitted with equipment bodies from numerous manufacturers. The driver/passenger side driving configurations, as well as seating choices and door options, offered in the LR Electric are the same as are offered in the diesel-powered Mack LR model.

Surgenor Kingston's 16,000-square-foot facility offers $800,000 in parts inventory, while Surgenor Ottawa's 24,000-square-foot facility has $2.5 million in parts inventory.
