A steady stream of visitors came by the Surface Tech exhibit at the recent APWA Public Works Expo (PWX) at the Minneapolis Convention Center, to learn more about our innovative ACE Fiber (Aramid) and other asphalt additive products. During the event, held August 28-31, we were pleased to discuss our patented processes, distribution network and in-house engineering capabilities, and explain why ACE Fiber makes asphalt notably stronger and more durable.
The PWX 2016 professional development conference and trade show was a first-time experience for Surface Tech. In all, the event attracted approximately 2,500 people from all facets of the public works network this year.
“It was gratifying to talk one-on-one with influential individuals and groups to further educate them about our ACE Fiber product and explore in more detail why our products are so successful,” said Steve Santa Cruz, Surface Tech president.
We found our time at our PWX booth to be invaluable. Our discussions underscored our North American distribution network and shared the details of our quality control program for on-site plant mix oversight and reporting. Visitors were also interested in our new on-site testing regiment. A more mechanistic approach to testing is what we are including in our overall testing procedures, as we feel they provide updated relevance.
The event was an excellent exposure for Surface Tech and ACE Fiber, our master distributor Breakthrough Technologies, and the area distributor, Brock White.
