Chicago-based company turns to natural gas for fuel

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A Chicago based company showed off some of its fancy new cement trucks.

Ozinga Brothers does business out of South Bend and they recently switched their concrete trucks. The trucks now run on natural gas and they have their own natural gas refueling stations.

They showed off their new trucks at South Bend's O'Brien Recreation Center.

The owners say they will never go back to regular gas.

"It's an exciting time for us," said Tim Ozinga. "It's exciting that we're a concrete company that's leading the way. We're really championing the cause for natural gas. It's a clean, abundant, affordable and American resource."

He says his trucks now operate cleaner and require less maintenance. Plus, they are quieter too.
