For more than 85 years Veit, a heavy industrial construction company, has relied on Chevrolet trucks to get its work done. The company’s commitment to Chevrolet began with the owner’s grandfather when the company opened in 1928. Today, the company is using Silverados in its fleet.
The construction company’s fleet includes both light-duty and heavy-duty Silverados, which consistently reach more than 200,000 miles. Approximately a dozen of the pickups have racked up more than 300,000 miles.
Veit’s business encompasses diverse site construction services ranging from the deconstruction of an abandoned ore dock that required years of preparation to the earthwork and pile installation for the construction of a new stadium. The company has earned a reputation for providing innovative solutions to challenging site construction projects.
“The work we do is diverse and rugged, so we need a vehicle that can match our needs,” said Chuck Geisler, executive manager of sales and marketing, Veit. “With its proven dependability, the Silverado is the vehicle for us.”
The heavy-duty pickups are used for pulling equipment that weighs more than 10,000 pounds. The light-duty pickups act as mobile offices with laptops and internet connections available for drivers to ensure that time is not lost and business continues to move forward while on the jobsite.
“The Silverado is a proven workhorse on the jobsite, and Veit’s experience is a testament to the long-term reliability and durability of the pickup,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, Fleet and Commercial Sales.
