Vac-Con, the Green Cove Springs manufacturer of sewer-cleaning vacuum trucks, reached another milestone this month by shipping a $6 million order to Peru.

In 2011, the company marked its 25th year in business and in May of 2012, the 300-person firm produced its 6,000th unit.

Around Christmas, Jaxport workers loaded 18 of Vac-Con’s trucks onto a cargo ship bound for South America.

Todd Masley, vice-president of sales, told Jacksonville television station WTEV that the company has a backlog of over 100 vehicles, orders that will take the company about four months to fill.
