Evergreen Transport marked a new day for its carrier fleet with the grand opening of a GAIN® Clean Fuel compressed natural gas station (CNG) at its fueling and maintenance facility located at 8278 Highway 25 in Calera, Alabama, just south of Birmingham.
“We’re thrilled to be celebrating the grand opening of this GAIN station,” said Calera Mayor Jon Graham. “Congratulations to Evergreen for utilizing this domestically produced and cleaner burning alternative fuel. Projects like these have a positive economic impact. It’s good for business and it’s good for the state.”
David Wildberger, president of Evergreen Transport, explains the benefits to Evergreen. “CNG will reduce our fuel costs and emissions while maintaining the superior transport services our clients expect from us,” he said. “It’s a win-win situation as it will save on our fuel budget and is better for the environment.”
The CNG station was built through a partnership between Evergreen and U.S. Oil which owns the GAIN® Clean Fuel brand. “This is a unique partnership for GAIN,” said Erick Johnson, Business Development Manager for GAIN® Clean Fuel. “This is a joint venture, giving both companies the opportunity to benefit from the economic advantages of CNG. The location was also strategically selected to provide the greatest benefit to Evergreen but also is convenient for other carriers interested in using the station.”
