Heavy industrial construction company Veit has relied on Chevrolet trucks to help do the tough jobs it’s recognized for since the company’s inception in 1928. Veit’s commitment to Chevrolet began with the owner’s grandfather and continues to this day, with light and heavy duty Silverado pickup trucks currently in its fleet.
The Minnesota-based company has earned a reputation for providing innovative solutions to challenging construction site projects, including the deconstruction of an abandoned ore dock that required years of preparation, to the earthwork and pile installation for the construction of a new stadium.
“The work we do is diverse and rugged, so we need a vehicle that can match our needs,” said Chuck Geisler, executive manager of sales and marketing for Veit. “With its proven dependability, the Silverado is the vehicle for us.”
The Silverado’s in Veit’s fleet consistently reach more than 200,000 miles on the odometer, with approximately a dozen going above the 300,000 mile mark. Heavy duty pickups are used to tow equipment weighing more than 10,000 pounds, while light duty trucks serve as transport and mobile offices for workers.
“The Silverado is a proven workhorse on the job site, and Veit’s experience is a testament to the long-term reliability and durability of the pickup,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president for General Motors Fleet and Commercial Sales.
Veit is featured in the 2013 GM Fleet and Commercial “Stories From the Road“. The series uses real life examples to illustrate how different companies use GM vehicles to succeed day to day. Yet, we wonder why a 2014 Silverado wasn’t available for photos.
