McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation company, has delivered 40 McNeilus Bridgemaster ready-mix trucks to multinational Argos USA.
The vehicles, which feature McNeilus’ Next Generation (NGEN) compressed natural gas (CNG) systems, represent the first-ever CNG trucks placed into service by Argos.
Twenty of the new vehicles are now on the job with Argos operations in Houston, and the remaining 20 will serve customers from facilities surrounding Dallas. Argos is completing the final construction on dedicated fueling stations – each with 25 fill posts – in Dallas and Houston. The Argos CNG trucks plug in at the end of each shift and time-fill overnight.
