Custom Breckenridge Material Company Concrete Trucks To Hit The Streets

ST. LOUIS – Breckenridge Material Company, a St. Louis-based supplier of ready mix concrete, recently unveiled two custom painted concrete trucks that are scheduled to hit the roads immediately. The drums of the concrete trucks are painted bright red and the two logos are white. The trucks will be used in everyday production making them visible by tens of thousands of St. Louisians daily.

The trucks purchased by Breckenridge Material Company took almost a year of planning and coordination and cost almost half a million dollars. The two new trucks were custom painted with the intent of promoting and building awareness for both organizations.

“The trucks are part of our everyday fleet, delivering concrete to projects large and small, from driveways to highways, all across the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. The secondary purpose of the trucks is to help build greater awareness for the American Heart Association and St. Louis Children’s Hospital,” said Nathan McKean, CEO of Breckenridge Material Company. “We (Breckenridge) wanted to find a way to support the community that we’ve served for almost 90 years and we thought this would be a great way to bring awareness to two great organizations that are saving lives in the St. Louis region.”

The American Heart Association’s Go Red logo was added to build awareness for their 11th National Wear Red Day on February 7th Go Red event and to act as a reminder to the community to put their heart health first because heart disease is the number 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.

“What better way to honor the children we serve then by sharing their message on the kind of great bigtruck many have in their toy boxes!” said Julie Reinke, director of major gifts at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation. “We are so grateful to Breckenridge Materials for their support and for their help spreading the word about St. Louis Children’s Hospital’s mission – to do what’s right for kids.”

The St. Louis Children’s Hospital logo was added to the other side of the truck’s drums because of Breckenridge Material Company’s on-going support for St. Louis Children’s Hospital and their advancements in pediatric heart surgery and research.

“The Go Red for Women movement is about educating women and raising awareness about the No. 1 killer of women, heart disease,” said Jennifer Jaegar, Executive Director of the American Heart Association, St. Louis. “Women put off everything to take care of everyone else, but these red trucks will serve as a reminder to put their heart health first. We sincerely thank our friends at Breckenridge Materials for their support.”
