Kalmbach Feeds, Inc. is a leading innovator in the animal feed industry, producing and distributing nutritional products throughout the eastern half of the United States. Paul Kalmbach, President, has built the CNG station near its Wyandot County, Ohio manufacturing plants and distribution center.
The philosophy behind building a CNG station is simple. The Kalmbach Team wants to be a part of America’s energy solution. The only viable solution to stopping the immense flow of U.S. dollars overseas to foreign oil producers is America’s own energy product. America has huge natural gas reserves that need to be utilized here. The only limitation today is infrastructure, and the Kalmbach Team wants to be part of the solution.
The station is part of a new venture, Kalmbach Clean Fuels, LLC, and will support Kalmbach’s new CNG-powered feed distribution trucks. Strategically located near the intersection of US 30 and US 23, the new station will allow other CNG fleets and individual vehicle owners to take advantage of the benefits of the clean-burning, domestically produced fuel.
Developing a fueling strategy that best utilizes company resources, with the intent of transitioning away from foreign oil lead Paul to CNG. “We wanted a “made in America” solution to our fueling needs, and with natural gas – we believe we found the right solution.” Kalmbach Feeds is planning to transition the entire fleet to either dedicated CNG or a combination of CNG / dual-fuel powered vehicles within 5 years.
