Snap-on has partnered with Carbon Motors, a new homeland security company, to help develop service strategies for the first-ever purpose-built law enforcement patrol vehicle.
“The Snap-on team was pleased to invite Carbon Motors to our Innovation Works facility in Kenosha where we discussed the future of homeland security and relevant shifts in automotive technology,” said Nick Pinchuk, chairman and chief executive officer of Snap-on Inc. “Carbon Motors is pursuing an idea that can define new capability for first responders. Our mission at Snap-on is to deliver unique solutions to real people who do critical work. We’re happy to lend our expertise in search of a better solution for law enforcement officers and those who support them.”
Besides working together on the service strategy for the Carbon E7 vehicle, the first car built strictly to be a police car, Snap-on and Carbon Motors are conducting a “Pure Justice Tour” where at each stop, Snap-on and Carbon Motors will host an interactive “Customer Service Summit” meeting. This opportunity allows fleet administrators, shop managers and technicians to help design various aspects of the service model with Carbon Motors and Snap-on.
To date, more than 3,400 Carbon Council members across all 50 states have helped successfully design the Carbon E7 vehicle. Taking their cue from this success, Snap-on and Carbon Motors say they intend to follow a similar approach in developing the service model.
