BY AsphaltPro Staff
Western Global, Sacramento, announced in August the addition of its third U.S. facility, located in Sacramento. This facility joins the company’s locations in Troy, Michigan, and Pineville, North Carolina, as part of its commitment to add local support and reduce shipping times for customers throughout the United States. The addition of the new Sacramento location enhances Western Global’s focus on sustainability. The company is reducing carbon emissions by minimizing the distance trucks need to travel to ship its products to their destinations. In addition to this positive environmental impact, Western Global’s products support customers in their own efforts to reduce carbon emissions. The transportable TransCube Global fuel tanks accommodate petroleum diesel as well as renewable diesel, offering advanced options for fleets to focus on environmental impacts.
Jeremy Shepherd and Jeff Lawrence will provide leadership at the Sacramento facility. Shepherd, a regional sales manager at Western Global, has 20 years of experience working for industrial equipment manufacturers. Before his time at Western Global, he was a regional sales manager for a manufacturer of fluid handling products. Lawrence is a national account manager at Western Global and brings 35 years of experience in the equipment industry to his role. Before joining the Western Global team, he had national account management roles for two different equipment manufacturers with a focus on the western region of the U.S.
