Throughout this year, Ozinga has added 30 CNG cement mixers, and intends to replace or convert its entire fleet of mixing trucks by 2020. In addition, it is planning to construct and operate additional fueling stations in Chicago and throughout the Midwest. The company has also leaded the trial of the first natural gas front discharge concrete-mixer truck.
“Building the fueling station and converting our fleet to natural gas reinforces our commitment to the foundation of Chicago’s new energy infrastructure,” said Tim Ozinga, owner of the 84-year-old company. “It satisfies a growing demand for energy that is greener, more affordable, and contributes to America’s energy independence.”
