Texas State Senator Kenneth 'Kim' Brimer (R-Fort Worth), a fifth-generation Texan who has served the families of Tarrant County in both the Texas Senate and Texas House of Representatives, is pictured here congratulating Speed Fab-Crete's president, David Bloxom, for replacing five aging diesel vehicles due to Texas Emissions Reduction Program (TERP). By upgrading to newer, less polluting vehicles, the Fort Worth-based design/build construction firm will prevent 47.4 tons of nitrogen oxides from polluting North Texas skies. The program is sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), and a host of other North Texas partners to upgrade or replace older trucks and equipment as a way to improve air quality in the nine-county area. The Texas Emissions Reduction Program (TERP) approved by the Texas Legislature serves as a national model for replacing and retrofitting older diesel engines.
Speed Fab-Crete held an open house and BBQ luncheon April 18 to celebrate the company's newly remodeled office building.
