Public Facility Near Airport Will Support 23 Ryder Trucks
Golden Eagle Distributors and Trillium CNG hosted a green ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open their public-access CNG fueling station on Golden Eagle’s headquarters property in Tucson. “The new fueling station provides much needed infrastructure for the growing CNG market,” the firms said.
The two officially opened a compressed natural gas station in Casa Grande, between Tucson and Phoenix, late last month.
The public fueling station in Tucson, on Ajo Way not far from the airport, will support Golden Eagle’s local fleet of 23 heavy duty CNG beer trucks and provide CNG to commercial fleets and retail consumers with CNG-equipped vehicles.
The Golden Eagle trucks are leased from Ryder System.
“We’ve made the commitment to use CNG in our local operations and to support sustainability in this community by opening a public CNG station,” Golden Eagle CEO Christopher Clements said in a release.
‘We Will Provide More of the Needed Infrastructure’
“Through our partnerships with Ryder and Trillium, we are able to take advantage of both the cost savings and environmental savings of converting our heavy duty fleet to CNG. By opening this public station, we will provide more of the needed infrastructure for other local business and individuals to choose CNG.”
Golden Eagle has been the exclusive distributor of Anheuser-Busch products, as well as other craft beers and imports across most of Arizona, since 1974. The third-generation company is owned by the Clements family and besides Tucson has offices in Buckeye, Casa Grande, Flagstaff, Globe, Show Low, and Tempe, Arizona.
