Salt Lake City, Utah’s, Geneva Rock Products has invested more than $8 million in a new compressed natural gas fueling station and fleet of 25 CNG ready-mix concrete trucks.
The fueling station is located on the company’s property and can fill all 25 trucks simultaneously. Geneva Rock’s investment in clean air and sustainable practices is one of the largest such investments made by a construction company in Utah, according to Geneva Rock.
“Lowering our emissions is of utmost importance to us as a company and guides our overall operating decisions,” said Jim Golding, president at Geneva Rock. “This specific purchase and installation is just part of the company’s overall clean air initiative, in which the company has already invested more than $30 million to lower emissions and improve Utah’s air quality.”
Geneva Rock said its fleet of CNG concrete mixer trucks will be the largest fleet of that type in the state and is a part of a larger clean air initiative to improve Utah’s air quality. The company also donated $25,000 to the Utah Clean Air Partnership to support its grants and education programs in 2017.
“It is important to Utah and the local economy to have proactive businesses do what they can to help resolve our air quality issues," said Senator Gene Davis, minority leader at Utah State Senate. “Geneva Rock is one of those companies that has continually invested in clean air technologies for their operations. I am proud to have this installation and new fleet of concrete trucks in my district.”
Since 1954 Geneva Rock has been a top supplier of ready-mixed concrete, sand and gravel, asphalt, and construction services along the Wasatch front and is the largest supplier of ready-mix concrete in the State of Utah, according to its website.
