One of the nation’s largest public utilities adds five new SWP trucks
A recent delivery of newly-designed and custom-built industrial service trucks from Southwest Products to the Salt River Project (SRP) power district continues the decades-long partnership involving fleet upgrades and vehicle support by the two organizations.
Southwest Products (SWP) delivered five new customized, state-of-the-art fuel and lube trucks this spring and completed delivery to SRP on four articulating crane trucks last year. As they have for more than 40 years, SWP fulfills the equipment service needs and fleet support for the power district, helping to reduce downtime that might delay power service repairs.
SRP is one of the largest power districts in the U.S., and the major provider of electricity and water in the state. The utility provides electricity in a 2,900 square mile service area to about one million customers in central Arizona. SRP will use the new trucks to service their fleet of shovels, graders, trucks, and loader and pool cars throughout the district’s broad service area.
SWP worked closely with SRP to specify the needs of the trucks and custom build the vehicles for the unique needs of the power utility. The entire SWP team was involved in the design phase of the trucks to provide built-to-last vehicles that will service SRP’s fleet for years to come.
“We are proud to support SRP and their custom vehicle needs for specific applications they have in the vehicle fleet operation,” said Shane McDermott, Vice President of SWP’s Vehicle Division. “Longstanding partnerships with organizations like SRP add tremendous value to our company as we continue to grow. Relationships like this are possible because of the efforts that the entire SWP team puts in to offer exceptional products with unmatched customer service.”
Crane, fuel/lube, and mechanics trucks are especially important for utilities, and SWP has provided many specialty vehicles for a number of other utility districts such as City of Glendale, Cloud Peak, Qwest, and Yuma County. The company’s 175,000 square-foot production facility allows SWP to design, fabricate, streamline, and efficiently manufacture customized premium lines of durable, heavy-duty lube and fuel trucks for public and private sectors across the country.
