13 2015

The GID Development Corporation designed, prototyped, and developed a compact auxiliary power unit that has been specially engineered to allow class 7 and 8 truck owners to meet the complex operating and regulatory environment facing the trucking industry. Versatile and lightweight in nature, the auxiliary power system by GID is designed to improve drivers’ comfort, cut operating expenses, and dramatically increase profits for the fleet.

GID was asked by a client to strategize and design a line of auxiliary power units to gain business and to offer the efficiencies and comfort of technology to the trucking community by engineering an APU specifically to meet the needs of fleets and operators alike. Moreover, the team of product designers was urged to explore users’ true needs to create a user-centric design solution.


After several practical considerations, the research and insight team at GID tabled the layout of Willis Auxiliary Power Systems, which was designed to offer the power and quality of a premium APU product with an affordable price tag. Here are the characteristics of Willis APU, and they are as follows:


Characteristics of Willis Auxiliary Power Systems

  • Designed for class-7 and class-8 trucks.
  • It offers necessary power even when the main engine is shut down.
  • Drivers can operate appliances, charge battery, and maintain engine block temperature.
  • Drivers can keep the diesel fuel at a recommended temperature to preventing gelling.
  • Highly fuel-efficient and consumes only 0.2gal/hr.
  • Willis Auxiliary Power System provides significant emission reductions.
  • Particulate matter is completely eliminated via special filtration.


“We are extremely delighted with the final product – the Auxiliary Power Systems, and the great advantages it offers to the commercial trucking community,” said Art Rojas, the Vice President at the GID Development Corporation. Unveiling the story about how the Willis Auxiliary Power Systems came to existence, he further added, “While designing the solution, we were forced to consider two burning problems; the first was rising prices of fuel and the second, rising levels of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in the atmosphere. After several days of sweating, our product designers turn up with a solution that consumed less fuel and emitted lesser amount of toxic gases. Hence, the product, which was going to be manufactured at GID, was not only fuel efficient in nature but was ecofriendly too.”


Highlighting the potential of APU, he added, “APU by GID not only does this, but also maintains the highest power output of any APU in its segment. The Willie Auxiliary Power System provides up to 50% more engine power than other products offered in the market, and its portable and lightweight structure facilitates for easy installation of a closed-loop cooling (CLC) system versus one that is integrated into the truck's own HVAC system.”
