We are able to maintain rigorous control of our product by owning and operating our own asphalt plants.
The Jurgensen Companies have ODOT (Ohio Department of Transportation), INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) and KYTC (Kentucky Transportation Cabinet) certified Quality Control Labs, located in close proximity to our asphalt plants. Technicians at these state-of-the-art labs are certified in HMA plant testing, Asphalt Roadway, Marshall Mix Design, Gyratory Mix Design, Earthwork and Base, and much more. We communicate the importance of quality control to all employees, and our experienced staff inspects and monitors the quality of mixes produced to ensure each customer receives the highest quality product available.
We set up a total quality control program to ensure all materials produced exceed consumers’ requirements and expectations. The testing and certification capabilities extend from our certified liquid asphalt binder lab, to our American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) accredited mix design labs and to our field testing capabilities.
The Science Behind What We Do:
The hot mix asphalt laboratories are continually changing to meet the needs of the paving industry in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. With more than 100 new mix designs completed each year through Valley Asphalt Corporation’s and Eaton Asphalt Paving’s main labs, continuing education, training and product research is a must. AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory (AMRL) round robin participation and certification allows Valley Asphalt Corporation to self-certify state mix designs for hot mix asphalt.
