Argos, Grupo Argos' cement company, is renewing its fleet of trucks in the United States by purchasing 200 mixer trucks with state-of-the-art technology. The goal is to improve the experience of its customers and employees through greater reliability, efficiency, safety, and comfort.
These trucks, representing nearly US$40 million in investment, will be incorporated in stage one of a comprehensive fleet expansion and replacement plan spanning the next five years. The company estimates new additions at the beginning of the second quarter of 2023 as part of this project.
"With the acquisition of these new assets, we continue our dedication to delivering extraordinary solutions to customers, helping facilitate the progress and development of the cities and communities where we have a presence. Our new trucks have a capacity of 10 cubic yards of concrete, are approximately 15% more fuel efficient than our previous trucks, and result in lower atmospheric emissions. They are also vehicles with the latest safety equipment to continue ensuring the safety of our employees and everyone we share the road with daily." Richard Edwards, President of Argos USA Ready-Mix.
The approximate useful life of a mixer truck is 8 to 10 years, or more than 70 000 cubic yards delivered. Therefore, increasing and renewing the fleet allows the company to optimize equipment reliability, lower maintenance costs, and increase resale value. In addition, by integrating this new equipment into our operations, the truck driver's experience improves, helping recruit and retain new hires and increasing their productivity and general well-being.
