Ozinga is bringing joy to people throughout the Chicagoland area this holiday season with the Ozinga Merry Mixer, our signature red and white ready mix truck adorned with more than 20,000 programmed LED lights. This display features animated light sequences to your favorite Christmas tunes and is definitely a sight to see.
The Merry Mixer took multiple coworkers from multiple departments working together to design and build. Some of this included custom-fabricating speaker brackets mounted on the back fenders of a 2017 Kenworth T800 McNeilus Bridgemaster ready mix truck. Over 100 feet of speaker cable was used to connect two JBL outdoor speakers that deliver 250 watts of power each. The speakers are connected and powered to a Sony XPLOD 400-watt amplifier located in the cab of the truck. The sound system is fully controlled from the driver in the cab.
The Ozinga Merry Mixer debuted on November 18th at the Mokena Parade of Lights and will make its way to other holiday celebrations and events throughout Illinois and Indiana. In addition, we’re currently working with some local non-profits to get the Merry Mixer to bring joy to those in need during the holidays, including a debut at Comer Children’s Hospital on December 7th.
