Indiana Phoenix Inc. will continue to offer the Standard Glider Program along with two new glider programs featuring a one-year guarantee.

With the Standard Glider Program customers furnish a donor truck and Indiana Phoenix will disassemble the truck and retrieve all usable components to build a Front Discharge Glider Truck. The donor parts are then steam cleaned, sand blasted and painted before assembly and all parts are inspected for defects. The Glider Truck also features an ergonomic cab and heat-treated frame rails.

As one of the new additions, Indiana Phoenix introduced the Certified Glider Program, where customers purchase a donor truck from another company (Indiana Phoenix has donor resources) so they can keep their own trucks in service.

Indiana Phoenix will take apart the donor truck and recondition the engine, transmission, rear tandem axle, front steer axle, transfer case, drum drive and hydrostatic pump and motor. The Certified Glider is then built using those certified components and customers receive a like-new truck that is fully warranted for one year at a savings of up to 30 percent of the cost of a new mixer truck.

The second new program is the Super Glider Program. Similar to the Certified Glider, the Super Glider Program adds factory warranted re-manufactured Cummins pre-emission engines with factory warranted re-manufactured Allison transmissions. Customers get a like-new truck with a one-year warranty and significant savings.

Another new-to-industry offering from Indiana Phoenix is the willingness to take trade-ins on trucks or gliders.

Joe Elkins, Phoenix general manager said, “We are really enthusiastic about the two new glider programs. Along with new truck sales, trade-ins, and even refurbishment of mixer trucks and used truck purchases we feel we now have the complete front discharge offering. We’re flexible enough to offer our customers what they need.”

Indiana Phoenix is a manufacturer of front discharge concrete ready-mix trucks, glider trucks and rear discharge units. Stone spreaders and water trucks also are available.

The company’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Avilla, Ind., and its products are distributed by a network of sales professionals throughout North America.
