Dutra's San Rafael quarry makes $5 million equipment upgrade

May, 16 2007


(San Francisco, California) -- Dutra Materials said Tuesday that it completed an entire fleet modernization program, bringing its equipment to the highest efficiency ratings in the state. The company upgraded the haul trucks used at the San Rafael rock quarry, said Aimi Dutra, director of community relations at Dutra. The equipment upgrade represents a $5 million investment by Dutra Materials. In addition to improving air quality, the upgrade is expected to result in quieter and more fuel-efficient operations. The upgrade was implemented more than a year in advance of regulatory requirements. "This is another step in our attempts to make our operations more eco-friendly and increase our efficiency," Dutra said. "We are making tremendous strides in cutting emissions of greenhouse gasses, reducing noise and improving energy conservation."
