US Gain partners with Delco Foods to bring new GAIN Clean Fuel station to Indianapolis
Indianapolis, Ind. (July 23, 2015) – U.S. Gain, the compressed natural gas (CNG) division of U.S. Venture, Inc. announced today that it has completed a new CNG station in partnership with Delco Foods, one of the Midwest’s largest distributor of Italian and specialty food items. The easy access, fast-fill GAIN Clean Fuel station is located just inside the I-465 loop at 8775 Zionsville Road in Indianapolis and is open to all CNG fleets and the public.
“This is a great partnership and one we encourage other carriers to consider,” said Kellie Walsh, executive director of the Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition. “Utilizing natural gas as a transportation fuel offers significant economic and air quality benefits. CNG is domestically produced in Indiana and throughout the U.S., which contributes to a less volatile fuel price and is cheaper than diesel. In addition, CNG emits fewer air pollutants than conventional diesel fuel, so everyone benefits.”
“We are excited to partner with U.S. Gain. Our trucks make about 1,300 deliveries a week so being able to get our products to customers with an environmentally-friendly and less expensive fuel option is an important component of our operational strategy,” said Steve Goldman, president of Delco Foods. Located near their distribution center, the Indianapolis station not only gives the Delco Foods fleet a strategic fueling location, but also contributes to their commitment to improve sustainability efforts.
“Despite reduced oil prices which have lowered the price of diesel fuel, we’re still seeing significant growth in the use of CNG. Our goal is to have a GAIN network in place that will provide easy access to CNG for local, regional and national carriers,” notes Bill Renz, general manager for U.S. Gain. “To achieve this, we are actively seeking partnerships with carriers that are looking to benefit by converting their fleets to CNG.”
