US CONGRESSMAN JEFF DUNCAN TOURS ASPHALT PLANT,

DISCUSSES JOBS AND TRANSPORTATION FUNDING

 

GREENWOOD, SC: The South Carolina Asphalt Pavement Association (SCAPA) welcomed US Congressman Jeff Duncan, who met Monday with employees of Satterfield Construction Company and members of the SC Asphalt Pavement Association at Satterfield’s Stoney Point Plant in Greenwood, SC.

 

Duncan, who represents Greenwood and the 3rd Congressional District, met with SCAPA members to discuss vital issues facing the industry and business community with Duncan, such as jobs, energy and the federal regulatory environment.

 

“We are excited to share our story with Congressman Duncan, including the environmental advantages of using asphalt, and that the asphalt pavement industry represents one of the largest recycler among any industry,” said SCAPA President David Ashmore.  “We were even more pleased that Congressman Duncan continues to be committed to economic development and workers of this state.”

 

SCAPA representatives also discussed the need for a long-term surface transportation bill with Congressman Duncan in order to support South Carolina’s critical infrastructure needs.

 

"This week I was honored to meet with members of the SC Asphalt Pavement Association in Greenwood, the very people who are on the front lines creating jobs and economic opportunity for South Carolinians," said Jeff Duncan, Congressman from South Carolina's third district.  "More importantly, this meeting gave me yet another opportunity to discuss jobs, energy, and the nation's regulatory environment, arming me with the tools I need to continue the fight in DC to lessen the regulatory burdens placed on our district's businesses and allow businesses to do what they do best."

 

The tour included a walk through Satterfield Construction’s plant’s operations, the state-of-the-art asphalt lab and sophisticated plant control room.

 

A recent study conducted by economist Harry Miley and Associates demonstrates that the South Carolina Asphalt industry has a $1 Billion dollar economic impact to the state of South Carolina and supports over 4,500 South Carolina jobs.

 

Other issues discussed included the increasingly energy efficient technologies and environmental benefits of using asphalt, such as the use of RAP (Recycled Asphalt Pavement), Recycled Asphalt Shingles (RAS) and Warm Mix Asphalt, as well as the cost benefits of asphalt paving, which include speed of construction and smoothness which results in less fuel consumption and a quieter ride.
