Equipped with Cummins ISX15 engines rated at 450 hp and driven through 10-speed transmissions, the trucks were purchased through Rihm Kenworth.
“Reliable equipment is such a critical thing for us, especially since we have a short working season,” said Carron. “When we get contracts with governmental agencies, there are penalties attached -- if you can’t get the work done as stated. Penalties are not cheap which makes us demand both good people and excellent equipment. For airport work, for example, fines can be as high as $5,000 per half hour. So, if you have a piece of equipment down, you not only lose money and pay penalties, you also may be answering to the public on the nightly news. For this company, we can’t have that. It’s why we’re going with Kenworth. They’ve proven to me they’ll hold up over the long haul.”
As for his new Kenworths and the military paint schemes? “They really showcase who we are and our values,” said Carron.
The trucks stand out so much, and along with Valley Paving’s story on being a veteran-owned state contractor, the local ABC affiliate in Minneapolis did a story on the company: http://kstp.com/news/stories/S2989845.shtml?cat=1
“Everyone here is very proud of our commitment, proud to show support to the retuning vets, and we encourage others to put veterans back to work,” Carron said.
