LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Kwik Trip Inc. will supply compressed natural gas (CNG) to AllEnergy Corp. subsidiary AllEnergy Sand’s drying plant during the winter months when pipeline supply of natural gas is limited.
Des Moines, Iowa-based AllEnergy chose convenience-store and fuel-delivery company Kwik Trip, it said, because of its specialized equipment and a delivery model that will be executed by Kwik Trip's transportation division, Convenience Transportation LLC.
This agreement is representative of Kwik Trip's commitment to offer affordable, domestic, clean burning Natural Gas to vehicles and businesses. It will provide the CNG from a number of Kwik Trip's 32 CNG stations located throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.
"Kwik Trip is excited to be partnering with AllEnergy to supply the CNG energy needs for AllEnergy's production operations and looks forward to a long-term relationship with the company," said Scott Teigen, vice president of Kwik Trip.
Dean Sukowatey founded AllEnergy in 2006.
