Kenco’s Solution for Open Roads

Kenco’s safety-conscious team executed the job efficiently, which helped the client maintain their specific project schedule. All aerial and street-level obstacles were cleared and the utility truck operators were constantly thinking ahead to the next obstacle to keep the heavy haul moving. Even difficult street signs didn’t slow the team down.


Both transports related to this project were completed safely and on-time. The project manager explained, “The Kenco guys were great. They provided an invaluable service to me as a heavy hauler, knowing that no matter what, I didn’t have to worry about them.”

He went on to say: “I may have some other utilities and other crews out there to support me, but those guys are an unknown. With Kenco, they touch everything and do everything, and help me out no matter what my project needs are. They are a great asset.”
