Kenco’s Solution for Open Roads

Kenco Bucket Trucks cleared overhead obstructions and assisted with roadside signage on turns. The project director credited the Kenco team with going above and beyond tasks that were expected of them. Their knowledge of most routes from Texas to Canada proved to be essential for the duration of the project, as they efficiently anticipated and prepared for turns ahead.


Both transports related to this project were completed safely and ahead of schedule, even with freezing temperatures in Houston and extreme weather conditions in the norther part of the U.S. The project director explained, “The project went off safely. We’ve used Kenco Bucket Trucks in the past, and we chose them for their professionalism. They’re one of our preferred contractors for overhead utility work. We try to utilize them on any and all projects.”
