What Can Crew Chief Do for You?

July 25th, 2012

What can Crew Chief do for you?GPS can do a lot more than just give you directions. Crew Chief, powered by Telogis® uses GPS technology to revolutionize the way you manage your fleet, helping you to cut costs and boost productivity.

Crew Chief works by using a GPS receiver (or “black box”) that hides under the dashboard, so all your fleet vehicles can be tracked in real-time. The data is collected, stored, and processed using a web-based application from Telogis that converts all your fleet data into an easy-to-use dashboard and meaningful, customizable reports.

Crew Chief can be factory-installed with any of the following new Ford trucks: F-150, Super Duty, E-Series and Transit Connect. Crew Chief is also available for retro-fitting on your existing fleet vehicles.

Give us a call today to get Crew Chief in your fleet!

Spotlight: American Autocoat and Ford Team Up to Bring Jobs to Hudsonville

May 8th, 2012

By Scott Gibbons,
Commercial Manager

Recently Borgman Ford was honored to supply two Ford Focus display cars for the kick off of a new 4-year contract with  Autocoat to supply interior parts for this vehicle.  Previously the parts were processed by a supplier in Mexico.  With unmatched quality and consistency, homegrown Hudsonville manufacturer, American Autocoat, was able to bring that contract back to Michigan, which will result in a 20% increase in workforce.

We are proud to represent an American manufacturer that is bringing jobs back to the United States.  We are proud of our partners and businesses in West Michigan who through quality, innovation, and a never-ending spirit, continue to grow and develop new ways to do business!

Founded in 2002, American Autocoat is a plastic mold, paint, and assembly facility that was named one of “Fifty Michigan Companies to Watch.”  They currently run interior and exterior components for Nissan, General Motors, Jeep, and Ford.  Ford makes up 62% of the business, where American Autocoat makes parts for the F-150, Fusion, Explorer, Transit Connect, and the Focus.

American Autocoat offers one of the most innovative plastics facilities in West Michigan.  Their 85000 sq. ft. facility has dedicated space for manufacturing, paint mixing, assembly, warehousing, maintenance, tooling, and quality control.  They also maintain a high level of environmental awareness and employ a number of systems that capture, burn, and re-use any and all waste products.

Kudos to American Autocoat for making West Michigan proud; and kudos to Ford for on-shoring its labor!
