Kenworth, Pape Kenworth, and Alliance Concrete Pumps donated a Kenworth T280 concrete pump truck that was sold at the annual Concrete Industry Management (CIM) auction at World of Concrete earlier this month. The truck was purchased for $212,500 by Lloyd Concrete Services, a concrete forming, placing, finishing, and pumping company headquartered in Rustburg, Virginia.

The entire purchase amount goes to CIM to help fund scholarships for students pursuing four-year Bachelor of Science degrees in Concrete Industry Management at Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Texas State University, California State University – Chico or South Dakota State University.

“We’ve been looking to add a line pump truck to our operation for a while and this auction presented us with a great opportunity to purchase one, while at the same time, support an excellent program in CIM that’s vital to our industry,” said Steve Lloyd, CEO of Lloyd Concrete Services, in a statement. “This Kenworth T280 will be a versatile addition to our fleet since the line pump is truck-mounted, eliminating the need for it to be pulled by trailer. It will make it easier for our drivers to tend to a variety of commercial and residential projects.” 

The Kenworth T280 features the Paccar PX-7 engine rated at 260 horsepower and 660 lb.-ft. of torque with a truck-mounted Alliance Concrete Pumps JMP-60 line pump. Other contributing suppliers for this truck include Alcoa Wheels, Goodyear Tires, and Allison Transmission. The T280 concrete pump does not require a CDL to operate, according to Kenworth.

“The JMP-60 is one of our top-selling products, and we are excited to once again team up with Kenworth and Pape Kenworth to pair this machine with the T280, which should appeal to a wide range of concrete contractors and generate a nice donation to support CIM,” said Clayton White, Alliance Concrete Pumps president/CEO, in a statement.

“The CIM education program is key to developing future leaders in the concrete industry,” said Kyle Kimball, Kenworth director of marketing. “The company that places the winning bid will receive an excellent truck to add to their operation while supporting a great program.”
