SUTRAK is celebrating nearly 50 years of global design, innovation, and uncompromising performance. We are a leading manufacturer of HVAC systems for Bus, Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) and Automated People Movers (APM).
First Homerun: In the 1970’s SUTRAK patented roof mounted HVAC technology for buses. Prior to this, only skirt mounted and rear mounted systems existed. They were so well received that SUTRAK expanded to 6 continents and roof mounted technology is now ubiquitous around the globe. In 1981, SUTRAK established a manufacturing site in Colorado. The facility served as the North American Headquarters until the 2006 expansion.
More Homeruns: SUTRAK presented the electric technologies to the US Transit Industry in Las Vegas in 2002. This resulted in a series of first to market for production buses in the United States.
- First production self contained rear mount HVAC systems on gas electric buses (New Flyer ISE)
- First self contained HVAC to integrate dual scroll compressor technology (redundancy and efficiency) for production buses.
- First generator powered electric HVAC on articulated diesel buses (New Flyer 2006)
- First generator powered electric HVAC on 40 foot diesel buses (NABI 2007-2008, multiple projects 2009-2019)
Today, with the advent of Battery Electric Buses, SUTRAK is well positioned to provide electric HVAC designs backed by nearly two decades of electric HVAC design and manufacturing and operation in the field.
