High quality products and service for eastern Pennsylvania
EJB Paving & Materials Co. is a road construction and blacktop supply company located in the heart of Berks County, Pennsylvania. Formed by E.J. Breneman, L.P. and Berks Products Corporation in 1993, EJB Paving has consistently provided quality blacktop and service to its customers.
Located just south of Leesport, our two blacktop plants are easy to access and are minutes from the major highways cutting through Berks County. One is an Astec Double Barrel drum mix plant erected in 1999. The plant is capable of producing 500 tons of blacktop per hour. The total storage capacity of the 4 storage silos at the drum plant is 1200 tons. Two cold feed bins were also added during the winter of 2004 to improve plant efficiency. The second plant is a three ton batch plant which primarily serves the needs of our commercial customers.
The plant is permitted by the PA Department of Environmental Protection to accept waste blacktop or millings known as Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) . Instead of dumping old or milled blacktop in landfills, EJB receives and stockpiles the material, crushes the materials and re-introduces the material into a new hot mix. This process holds costs down and reuses a material previously thrown away. Loads are accepted during work hours or by special arrangement. The plants operate Monday through Saturday during the construction season.
In addition to accepting RAP, EJB is starting to utilize a new process known as Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA). This process produces blacktop at a lower temperature than standard hot mix. This creates lower emissions from the plant, uses less fuel, and also allows for a mix with higher RAP content. The new process will be up and running in the spring of 2010.
EJB also produces Porous Pavement material. This material is used to construct parking lots that allow drainage through the paving and into an underground drainage system, thereby eliminating the need for unsightly retention ponds. For additional information, visit pahotmix.org .
EJB Paving & Materials is also a highly respected road construction contractor operating in and around Berks County. Our crews can handle anything from a small parking lot project to a multi-million dollar PennDOT paving project.
We´re always eager to start a relationship with a new customer; please do not hesitate to contact us.
