Sunroc recently took part in the highly anticipated Touch-A-Truck event at the Rock Springs Family Recreation Center in Wyoming. This annual gathering offers children and families the opportunity to get up close and personal with the machinery that keeps our communities running.

Six Sunroc team members proudly represented our company, bringing a variety of vehicles for attendees to explore. Our crew included Alex Havens (Mixer Driver), Michael Farmer (Batcher/Operator), Aaron Farmer (Concrete Operations Manager), Zhana Tahnazani (Mixer Driver), Rick Rosene (Pump Operator) and Phil Merrel (Pump Operator).

The event was a resounding success, with countless smiles and wide-eyed wonder from the children as they climbed into the driver’s seat and learned about the powerful machines.

“The children and adults that showed up for the event enjoyed sitting in the big cement mixers and blowing air horns,” Alex said. “We also showed them how far the chutes on the front-end loaders extended with the hydraulic chutes. I found the children enjoyed the air ride seats almost as much as putting the drum in full charge.

“The showstopper for our event was the pump. Kids were able to maneuver the extended arm of the pump through a series of skill tests and handle the controls themselves. They enjoyed it immensely. It was a very nice turnout from our Sunroc family. The teamwork was incredible.”

Aaron added, “It was a great opportunity to connect with the community, share what we do every day and teach them about the diversity of drivers we have. The kids were so enthusiastic, and it reminded us why we love what we do. It shows that anyone can be a part of our team and reach success together.”

Like all of Clyde Companies, Sunroc is committed to engaging with the community and helping create a sense of curiosity and learning in the next generation. We look forward to many more events like this, where we can share our passion and knowledge with families.

Thank you to everyone who came out and made the event unforgettable!
