For Michelle and Joe Logan, owners of Logan Aggregate Recycling, Inc. of Richmond, VA, success has come steadily since they began the concrete and asphalt recycling business in early 2010. Having  realized a need for an onsite custom crushing service in the greater Richmond and Tidewater area of Virginia, the Logans departed from Joe’s former occupation as a heavy equipment sales representative. They began the business using a crusher, a screener and a mobile conveyor system that met their needs but required considerable space when it came to crushing at a customer’s site. More importantly, it required more time and equipment to move from place to place.
Logan saw the need to consider a change, especially with the onset of the new emission regulations and the Tier IV engine requirements in the industry. “In early 2012 we began looking for a second machine that could help us expand operations and at the same time would give us a smaller footprint when it came to setting up at the jobsite,” said Joe. “That was when Jeff Ford, regional manager for Mid-Atlantic Powerscreen in Northern and Central Virginia introduced us to the XH320SR impact crusher. We purchased this unit in February of last year.” [Read more…]

That’s a RAP

OverviewMississippi Asphalt Company uses growing RAP industry, IROCK Mobile Crushing Plant to increase production
Bigger, stronger, faster. In a world where time is of the essence and money is tight, efficiency is crucial. It’s no surprise business leaders like Dan Linley continually search for methods and products to make their operations soar. Linley, vice president of Superior Asphalt in Jackson, Miss., found the boost he was looking for in processing an old product with a new machine.
Superior Asphalt, Inc., founded in 1991, began as a small, one plant asphalt operation that mainly paved parking lots. Now, 22 years later, the company operates out of four asphalt plants and is the second largest highway contractor in Mississippi. Pulling from its five sand and gravel pits throughout the state, as well as milling and crushing Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Superior now produces approximately one million tons of asphalt per year. About 90 percent of that is used for repaving state highways and 10 percent is allotted to government and private projects. [Read more…]
