In March, Grammer Industries, Grammer, IN, USA, one of the country’s leading carriers of anhydrous ammonia (NH3), propane and hazardous materials, unveiled a new Wounded Warrior Project-themed transport trailer. The trailer is a lynchpin in Grammer’s new fund-raising initiative that is designed to raise monies for United States service personnel who have been injured in the Afghan and Iraqi conflicts. Blackmer®, a global leader in positive displacement and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, is proud that Grammer chose to outfit the trailer with one of its TLGLF4 Series Sliding Vane Pumps.
The unveiling of the Wounded Warrior Project transport occurred on March 27 at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY, kicking off a year-long initiative in which Grammer Industries hopes to raise $250,000 to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and the SHARE Military Initiative at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA, which is a spinal-cord and brain-rehabilitation clinic. Both programs provide assistance, support and education to critically injured U.S. service members.
“We set out on this endeavor because we were inspired by the life-changing impact and rehabilitation support that has been provided to one of Grammer Industries’ own,” explained Charles “Shorty” Whittington, Grammer Industries’ Founder and CEO. “The work that the Shepherd Center and the Wounded Warrior Project does is phenomenal and we are thankful for the tremendous support from our vendors.”
The trailer, which can haul up to 10,600 gallons of NH3, propane and hazardous materials, features the Blackmer TLGLF4 pump, a model that is standard equipment on all of Grammer Industries’ transport trailers. The TLGLF4 pumps meet Grammer’s needs because they have been designed for maximum performance and reliability under the most severe operating conditions. In 2010, a TLGLF4 pump was featured on Grammer’s industry-first pink Breast Cancer Awareness transport trailer.
Grammer’s Wounded Warrior Project transport trailer faces a busy year and has already made stops at the NPGA Southeastern Convention and International Propane Expo in Atlanta and the M-PACT Show in Indianapolis, IN. It will also appear at a number of fund-raising events before being put into Hazmat service.
