Recently, Trimac played a part in the re-fuelling of Air Force One at the Million Air FBO in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
"We all know that Trimac does important work each-and-every day," said Brad Nelson, Branch Manager in Lake Charles. "However, we don't often get to assist the Office of the President, which we all thought was pretty exciting."
Trimac is contracted to deliver 80,000 gallons of jet fuel each week, which then gets transferred to airport trucks for re-fueling the planes on the tarmac. Air Force One was there after bringing President Trump to tour a new LNG plant and discuss job creation in the area.
Trimac has directly benefited from a similar LNG expansion, delivering cement from LafargeHolcim to a construction site in Cameron, Louisiana. There are currently 12 company drivers dedicated for this work, and once in full operation, there will be 10 cement bulk units with 20 drivers running around the clock over the next year.
"We are excited that Trimac can play a key role in this construction effort," said John Hanford, Area Manager. "We hope to see more opportunities like this in the future."
"We required a lot of new drivers to start up this contract. It was a coordinated effort between Operations and Recruitment, and I'd like to thank everybody involved in making it a success."
