This partnership will bring Ferguson's investments in the automotive industry further and introduce them to the sustainable transportation solutions that help customers achieve their bottom line.


Ferguson Enterprises LLC (FE) and Ford Motor Company have teamed up to develop a first-of-its-kind F550 Fuel Cell Prototype Chassis Work Truck, specifically for commercial fleet operations. The two companies are exploring the opportunities available to establish an alternative fuel business model and will be testing alternative fuels on the largest trucking industry fleet in the United States.

Ferguson is participating in the F550 Fuel Cell Prototype Work Truck, a DOE SuperTruck 3 Initiative, which will allow them to test the potential of fuel cell technology that aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Ford will benefit from vehicle data and field feedback as the two companies work together to develop a more precise understanding of the engineering requirements for commercial vehicle duty cycles, so they can better define the technical specifications that are needed.

"We are taking a proactive approach to meet the challenge for a more sustainable future, recognizing the critical role fuel-efficient trucks play to keep American businesses running,"  Ferguson CEO Kevin Murphy stated.

The new collaboration comes on the heels of Ferguson's previous announcement that it will be launching an all-electric fleet of delivery trucks in collaboration with Holman and Electrada.

"As we reviewed emissions from our fleet, we realized our scale in the industry provided us with an opportunity to invest in and test new technologies. Participation in Ford's F550 Fuel Cell Prototype Work Truck pilot program will provide further learning as we work to convert Ferguson's fleet more efficiently," Denise Vaughn, Ferguson Vice President - Environmental, Social and Governance announced.

"Ford's strategy to reduce carbon emissions across the globe includes investigating multiple technologies that will help us achieve these goals across a broad spectrum of applications," said Jim Buczkowski, executive director of Ford Research and Advanced Engineering.

Ferguson and Ford are demonstrating their commitment to making the fleet services industry more environmentally friendly, which is beneficial to all parties involved.
