Geneva Rock Products has invested over $8 million in a new CNG fueling station and fleet of 25 CNG ready-mix concrete trucks. The new station is located on their property in South Salt Lake, and can fill all 25 trucks simultaneously. Geneva Rock’s investment into clean air and sustainable practices is even more significant as it is among the largest air quality investments made by any construction company in the state of Utah.
“We all share ownership and responsibility for Utah’s air quality. We applaud Geneva Rock for leading its industry by making this significant investment in new clean natural gas concrete trucks to help contribute to a better air quality solution,” said Ted Wilson, executive director at Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR). “There is no silver bullet to solving Utah’s air quality, but every small change adds to a collective bigger step toward better health, a better economy and better overall quality of life for all of us.”
“Geneva Rock is excited to announce a new eco-friendlier fleet of 25 CNG ready-mix concrete trucks and a new innovative CNG fueling station. Lowering our emissions is of upmost 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’s CNG trucks will be the largest fleet of concrete mixers in the state, and perhaps the only one. Geneva Rock is the first ready-mix contractor to own and operate a natural gas filling station in the state of Utah. The CNG station and fleet are just part of the company’s $30 million clean air initiative to help improve Utah’s air quality.
