“When we tell you that we can do everything you need us to do, you don’t need to lose any sleep over it, we’ve got it”

Dan Frederick - Principal - AMPS



As Principal of AMPS, Dan has over 35 years of experience in the locomotive and railroad equipment industry, including converting industrial locomotives to battery power, as well as 10 years in heavy construction. Dan wanted to change the way both government and industry viewed battery electric and battery electric hybrid technology, and he established AMPS (Alternative Motive Power Systems) in 2004. Building on past relationships and establishing new ones, he has been able to successfully carry his approaches to electric and hybrid electric technology into other industrial and mobile equipment, as well as select commercial vehicle applications.
