There is no question but that the last few years have been exciting times for The Conco Companies. We have had the opportunity to be involved in record breaking events and successfully taking on many new challenges. While all this has contributed to the well-being of the company, we are also extremely committed to upholding our responsibilities as a leader in the industry as well as in the community.
In our desire to give back to the community, we recently donated $50,000 to Transportation California. The non-partisan, non-profit public interest organization’s mission statement contains “the belief that an excellent highway system is vital to the economic well-being of our state and the quality of life of our people.” At Conco we also believe in the benefits of a strong transportation system throughout California. We recognize that by supporting a well-maintained, modern transportation system, we help to facilitate business growth and create more jobs.
Our commitment to the communities we live and raise our families in also means we take air quality seriously. As early as 2012, our Reliable Trucking Company got busy installing diesel particulate filters (DPF’s) on its existing fleet of trucks in plenty of time to comply with the new regulations imposed by CARB. Although there were phased-in plans offered by CARB that allowed companies to install these units over an extended timeline, Reliable outfitted their entire fleet of company-owned trucks by the end of 2013.
Another way Conco is working to improve the environment is with our recent purchase and use of a new state-of-the art electric pump. This high pressure, high powered pump is the only electric pump of its size being used on the West Coast by the concrete pumping industry. Since it is electric, the pump meets the guidelines imposed by the Southern California Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for reduced emissions. It also generates much less noise than a traditional diesel powered pump.
When your project demands exceptional services as well as getting the best value, Conco can deliver. We have been offering premium concrete services throughout the Western U.S. since 1959, and have a regional office in the Seattle area. With state-of-the-art equipment and modern facilities, we work diligently to meet goals and stay within budget.
