Extends MultiSource™ Fly Ash Supply Network to Metro Denver Area
LOUISVILLE, KY (October 10, 2017) – Charah®, LLC, the nation’s largest privately-held ash management company, today announced the recent addition of a fly ash storage rail terminal in partnership with OmniTRAX, one of the largest privately held transportation service companies in North America and an affiliate of The Broe Group.
The new terminal is located in Kelim, CO north of Denver and is part of Charah’s expanding MultiSource™ network. MultiSource is Charah’s unique distribution system of multiple sourcing locations across the country, which ensures a steady and reliable supply of Class C and Class F fly ash for ready mix concrete producers and other Charah customers. Other recent additions include terminals in the South, New England, the Midwest and California.
Recognizing the steady demand for quality fly ash in Western states, Charah’s Denver-area terminal will provide concrete producers in the Metro Denver and surrounding region with a reliable source of quality Class F fly ash.
According to Scott Ziegler, Vice President of Ash Sales and Marketing at Charah, “As one of the leading fly ash sales and marketing companies in the country, our new terminal location and partnership with OmniTRAX ensures that we are able to provide a steady and reliable supply of ash for the ready mix concrete producers throughout the Metro Denver marketing region.”
“We are delighted to partner with Charah to provide our rail-to-truck transloading services,” said Kevin Shuba, CEO of OmniTRAX. “Our Great Western Railway of Colorado has become a vital link in Northern Colorado’s transportation network.”
Concrete producers demand the quality and availability that Charah fly ash brings to every project, with all the advantages of added strength, durability, increased workability and improved finish product quality. The use of fly ash in concrete products offers benefits in both the hardened and plastic state of concrete. In addition to improving the finish product quality, using fly ash in concrete products and other applications not only eliminates the need to dispose of fly ash in landfills, it also significantly reduces the overall carbon footprint and conserves our natural resources by replacing materials that would otherwise have to be mined and processed for these products.
