We are the largest asphalt paving company in North America and the No. 1 asphalt producer. Asphalt is primarily used in road surfacing and other transport infrastructure including airport runways.
Our quality control technicians and initiatives maintain the overall safety of the site, monitor truck placement and traffic control, check grades and ensure that projects go smoothly and meet specifications.
As a full-service integrated supplier, we control not only the production of the asphalt but also its application, guaranteeing a superior product from start to finish.
We work hard to live up to our reputation for highly trained crews, top-notch equipment and outstanding results.
Our product innovation, which includes the latest advances in warm-mix asphalt and Recycled Asphalt Pavements (RAP) is second to none.
Our state-of-the-art technology includes electronics, GPS systems, material transfer devices, high-tech rollers and oscillating rollers.
Nothing is more important than our employees’ safety, and we use many methods, including balloon lights, reflective vests, arm bands, gloves, other safety gear and safeguards to ensure that every employee goes home safely at the end of the day.
Our companies ensure quality through individual quality-control initiatives, rigorous product testing, management plans and procedures.
We invest heavily in recycled materials that consume less burner fuel and release fewer emissions, such as Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Recycled Asphalt Shingles (RAS) and Warm-Mix Asphalt (WMA) technologies
For more than a decade, we have championed the use of WMA, which offers excellent workability and uniform density, extends the paving season, and is better for the environment.
In conjunction with support, research and information from the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), we continue to enhance WMA, which we use to build parking lots, stadiums and highways. WMA is just one way we strive to conserve energy, we also constantly monitor every facility to ensure that it is operating with optimal energy efficiency.
CRH is an active member of the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), the only trade association that exclusively represents the interests of asphalt producers and paving contractors on a national level with Congress, government agencies, and other national trade and business organizations.
John Keating, Executive Vice President of CRH’s Americas Materials Division, served as 2013 Chairman and in 2015 was named NAPA Man of the Year for his leadership in developing the asphalt industry's Marketing Council which brings together representatives from the Asphalt Institute (AI), the State Asphalt Pavement Associations (SAPA) and NAPA.
