After receiving a truck chassis from Dolese Bros. Co., the Swan Lake Fire Department outfitted it with a water tank and painted it. Firefighter Nathan Roberts (left to right), Kermit Frank, and Fire Chief Dicky Wilson review the final product as it went into service.
With nearly 60 operations, including ready-mix plants, quarries, and sand and gravel operations throughout its market, Dolese Bros. Co. could easily find uses for ready-mix trucks as it cycles them out of service as drum mixers. And, it does just that; transforming some as work trucks in its quarries and selling others as used equipment for approximately $30,000. However, it also donates trucks to local volunteer fire departments and technical training programs. Read how Dolese’s donations are having a significant impact for those recipients in the March Good Neighbors column of Rock Products.
