ASTEC was founded in 1972 with the vision to apply creative thinking and state-of-the-art technology to traditionally low-tech industries, bolstered by a corporate culture renowned for putting customer service first. Based in Chattanooga, our market-leading brands have become a global leader in the manufacture of equipment from Rock to Road.

Asphalt pavement consists of a highly controlled mixture of liquid asphalt cement and aggregate that is placed and compacted to create a smooth surface designed to facilitate vehicular and pedestrian transportation. The manufacture of asphalt pavement requires the combination of a number of aggregates, sand, and a filler (such as baghouse fines), in the correct proportions, which is then heated and finally coated with a liquid asphalt binder.  Equipment for the production of asphalt pavement, including aggregate production, asphalt mixing, and paving equipment has been a core industry for ASTEC from the beginning.

Ultimately, the company’s goal is to design and build state-of-the-art equipment which makes it possible for customers to supply their customers with industry-leading results profitably.

For ASTEC customers, it will continue to be the most innovative company in its industry offering the world’s most advanced, productive, durable, and environmentally friendly products, coupled with training and education, service and support that is far beyond anything offered by our competition.

For ASTEC shareholders, it strives to deliver continuous increases in shareholder value through stable long-term growth in earnings per share. To that end, the company plans to expand and enhance the scope and profitability of our core business through internal growth and strategic acquisitions.
