RAZORBACK CONCRETE EMBRACES SUSTAINABILITY WITH CASTROL® VECTON®

CUSTOMER NEWS / Post date:
2 June 2019

Two Castrol customers, Razorback Concrete and RazorRock Materials, are converting their fleets to Castrol VECTON, the world’s first certified carbon-neutral commercial vehicle engine oils.* The move to VECTON will bolster their sustainability objectives by reducing the carbon footprint of their operations and their overall impact on climate change.


The company operates 19 ready-mix plants and four quarries across Arkansas and is one of the premier ready-mix companies in the state. In addition to converting to VECTON, the company will be using the Castrol Labcheck® used oil analysis program to monitor engine conditions and to extend drain intervals to reduce lubricant usage and increase operational efficiencies.


Sustainability has become a driving force behind many of the world’s leading companies. By making VECTON carbon-neutral, Castrol is helping its customers to address climate change. Customers that convert to VECTON products can reduce their CO2e emissions while supporting carbon-reduction projects in the U.S. and abroad.


Like many Castrol heavy-duty customers, Razorback and RazorRock face many environmental and sustainability challenges that are inherent to their businesses. By transitioning to VECTON, they will be saving approximately 178,000 pounds of CO2e emissions per year, which is equivalent to 88,000 pounds of coal being burned.


This is the first step on a journey that will yield not only operational benefits, but a more sustainable business for years to come.
