Union City, PA - Molded Fiber Glass Union City (MFG Union City), manufactured and shipped their 3,000th fuel cell for the military industry last month. MFG UC was awarded a military contract to redesign and manufacture a large fuel cell. The fuel cell is open molded on an upper and lower mold separately. Our fuel tank when assembled features: 130+ gallons of fuel, is able to deflect temperatures greater than 100°C, improved crew survival, and is an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Resistant making it a Survivable Fuel System. The fuel cell is almost 80 square foot, and weighs in at 127 pounds.
"We began production in February 2010 and within three short years have produced a thousand units a year. We've had to run a second shift a couple of times to keep up with demand," Project Engineer, Aaron Martz. "It's been an interesting project to work on and the benefit it brings to our men and women in war zones makes all our teammates proud to be part of the project," said longtime teammate April Ernst.
