AmpCNG is announcing today a new public-access compressed natural gas fueling agreement with US Foods. “Under the deal, AmpCNG will build a public-access fueling station in Buda, Texas to serve US Foods, the station’s anchor tenant,” states a release.

Summer 2017 to Open

AmpCNG expects to break ground in early 2017 and plans to open the Buda station in summer 2017. Buda is about 15 miles south of Austin.

AmpCNG notes that US Foods recently won a TERP/Texas Emissions Reduction Plan grant for 40 new CNG trucks, “bringing its Buda, Texas-based CNG fleet to a total of fifty.”

“Increasing the number of CNG vehicles in our fleet allows us to continue to reduce our annual fuel costs while reducing the amount of emissions emitted during our daily deliveries to customers,” US Foods transportation VP Dario Skocir says in the AmpCNG announcement.

‘Improvements Across the Company’

“US Foods continues to make improvements across the company to reduce our environmental footprint and allow us to serve our customers in an energy efficient way,” he said.

The new station will be AmpCNG’s eighth in Texas, bringing its total station network to 20. The company’s other Texas stations are in Amarillo, Harrold, Waco, Brock, Rosenberg, Sweetwater and Kerrville.
