Shawnee Mission, Kan.-based Penny’s Concrete Inc. has adopted American Petroleum Institute-licensed and Society of Automotive Engineers-grade Eco Ultra recycled oils and coolants across its 150-truck fleet. Universal Lubricants in Wichita, Kan., bills itself as the only domestic producer of recycled motor oils, maintaining a closed-loop supply chain by collecting, re-refining, blending, packaging and re-distributing its own truck lubricants. “The average 60-quart recycled motor oil change translates to a savings of 24 new barrels of oil,” notes CEO John Wesley.
“Penny's Concrete has maintained a family-run operation for 84 years, with plans to run our business for at least another 84,” adds Penny’s Vehicle Maintenance Manager David Shuck. “[The] decision to use a premium recycled motor oil makes a difference for the environment we've worked in, day in and day out, for close to a century.”
