HOUSTON, Texas — For 20 years, Williams Brothers Construction Company in Houston, Texas, has been buying REMACK remanufactured parts for its fleet of 360-plus Mack trucks from Vanguard Truck Center of Houston. So it was little surprise to Eugene Red Moore, Williams Brothers transportation supervisor, when he learned the company had installed REMACKs 50,000th remanufactured carrier on one of its trucks.
We have so many Mack trucks out on the road, it was bound to happen, Moore says.
One of the largest construction companies in the United States, Williams Brothers builds roads and bridges throughout south Texas. In addition to the 360-plus trucks it runs in the Houston area, the company also has an estimated 150 in the San Antonio area and another 150 or so in the lower Rio Grande Valley. Every one of those 660-plus trucks except for one is a Mack.
We buy Mack because Mack is the best equipment for our use, Moore says. Weve got 60% of our fleet on-road and 40% off-road, and we dont wear things out we tear things out. Thats the nature of the beast. Thats why we try to keep the best equipment and replacements, and its why we buy Mack and REMACK.
As the parts manager at Vanguard Truck Center, Derek Jarboe has seen Williams Brothers business continue to grow. In addition to REMACK carriers, the company also buys REMACK engines, transmissions, water pumps and injector pumps from the dealership. Theyre a long-term client and a large customer of the entire REMACK product line, Jarboe says. The fact that they bought REMACKs 50,000th carrier is pretty cool.
