US Foods and compressed natural gas fueling solutions company ampCNG have announced a fueling and station agreement to build a public-access fueling station in Buda, Texas to serve US Foods.
The new station will be located adjacent to the US Foods distribution center on Turnersville Road in Buda. The ampCNG ultra-fast-fill CNG station will have two dual-hose dispensers serving two lanes. ampCNG expects to break ground in early 2017 and will open the station in the summer.
“We’re extremely proud to partner with US Foods, a clear leader in the foodservice industry and a fellow Chicago-based company,” said Grant Zimmerman, CEO of ampCNG. “We’re also grateful for the support we’ve received from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality as we bring our eighth station online in Texas. We share in TCEQ’s commitment to reducing emissions and improving air quality.”
The station will be ampCNG’s eighth in Texas, bringing its total station network to 20.
The company’s other stations in Texas are located in Amarillo, Harrold, Waco, Brock, Rosenberg, Sweetwater and Kerrville. The ampCNG ultra-fast-fill CNG fueling stations are located across the U.S. on heavily traveled highway corridors, supporting some of the largest CNG fleets in the country with partners in the food and beverage, agriculture and dairy industries.
“US Foods continues to make improvements across the company to reduce our environmental footprint and allow us to serve our customers in an energy efficient way,” said Dario Skocir, vice president of transportation, US Foods. “Increasing the number of CNG vehicles in our fleet allows us to continue to reduce our annual fuel costs while reducing the amount of emissions emitted during our daily deliveries to customers.”
