Climate system supplier Bergstrom Inc. has hired Forrest Fields as director of bus air conditioning.

Fields joins Bergstrom with more than 25 years of experience in the commercial and school bus transportation industry. He has held sales and marketing positions at ACC Climate Control and Trans/Air Manufacturing, among other companies.

"We’re very excited to have Forrest join our team,” said Larry Landreth, managing director of BSP, bus air conditioning, and solar at Bergstrom. "He’s a tenured professional whose comprehensive knowledge of automotive and bus air conditioning will be a huge benefit to us internally and, of course, to our customers.”

As part of his new role, Fields will be charged with helping to grow Bergstrom’s bus air-conditioning business.

Bergstrom began producing heaters for school buses in 1952. The company introduced its latest school bus a/c system, the Cool Zone, in 2016.

Another recent hire for Bergstrom’s bus air-conditioning division was Paul Rothschild, who was named a regional sales manager.
