“We recently purchased our new Ingersoll Rand 3120 paver from Asphalt Care Equipment and Supplies, a company that understands our business,” said Eosso.

“The owner, sales manager, and employees have been in the field on paving projects and understand problems unique to our industry,” said Eosso. “When it comes to equipment purchases, their expertise helps in the decision-making process.”

“We like to maintain our new equipment and keep our employees happy,” added Eosso. “Our trucks are equipped with satellite radios and all our employees are given benefits.”
