April Client of the Month: Ramar Foods
Ramar Foods began as a small, family-owned company who wanted to share their delicious recipes from the Philippines with North America. With more than 50 years of success, Ramar has expanded into the European, Middle Eastern and Australian markets and has plans to go beyond. PineSpire is thrilled to highlight the vibrant business as our Customer of the Month.
Moonlight Companies Benefits from the LCFS Program
Moonlight Companies is in the heart of California’s San Joaquin Valley and specializes in sharing delicious fruits with the world. From peaches bursting with flavor to the juiciest mandarins we have ever tried and doing it all with sustainability in mind. Moonlight is constantly innovating on their operations, finding new ways to reduce cost and optimize production. This includes investing in energy, like solar and battery storage, as well as adopting new technologies to continually improve processes.
PineSpire wants to take this opportunity to highlight Moonlight Companies accomplishments as our March Client of the Month.
PineSpire recently had a chance to sit down with Moonlight to discuss the benefits of opting into California’s LCFS program (the Low Carbon Fuel Standard program). Here are the top uses of the revenue from the LCFS program:
- Offsetting the cost of charging EVs
- Funding new EV chargers for company cars as well as employees’ vehicles, a nice perk for the team.
- Hastening the Return on Investment of new electric equipment for their fleet
In addition to taking part of the LCFS program, Moonlight Companies is developing an electrification plan that works for their fleet. Examples of how they are evaluating, funding, and rolling out new EVs include:
- Participating in a pilot program with HummingbirdEV to test out fully Electric Refrigeration Trucks
- Leveraging funding from PG&E to install a new service dedicated to Heavy-Duty EV Charging
- Complying with current regulations for vehicles and material handling equipment
- Getting ahead on future proposed Zero Emission Air Quality Regulations
- Ty Tavlan, VP, is actively participating in industry workgroups to provide commercial perspective on both the Heavy-Duty Vehicle adoption and Regulatory fleet emission standards

PineSpire Featured in MHN
PineSpire and our own Patrick Dawson were featured in an online article published by the Material Handling Network….
Here’s a snippet of the full article below:
One company providing a nontraditional, but vital kind of support to industrial and commercial companies and municipalities is Durango, Colo.-based PineSpire. They may not provide the forklifts that move massive amounts of product, but they will help you find revenue streams to purchase electric forklifts, yard goats, and yard semis.
PineSpire Co-Founder Patrick Dawson said they specifically provide turnkey services to California companies navigating the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) standards and Oregon firms required to comply with the Clean Fuels Program (CFP).
“It’s a way for them to gain efficiency by letting us take care of what we say is the process from registration to revenue,” Dawson said.
The California and Oregon programs are designed to decrease the carbon intensity of transportation fuels used there and provide an increasing range of low-carbon and renewable alternatives. That applies to everything from city plows to company forklifts.
Among the many layers of the programs are grants and incentives provided to those who meet the standards. Yet many materials-handling firms and other companies likely don’t have the time or staff to undertake what can amount to a full-time job just understanding the nuances of the laws, Dawson said.Read more
