J.H. Rudolph Receives APAI Asphalt Award

The Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana announced today that J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc., A CRH Company, has received a Quality Pavement Award for the 2020 resurfacing project on Folsomville Degonia and N 225 E Roads in Warrick County, Indiana.  Crews placed over 12,000 tons of asphalt over the summer, in exorbitantly high temperatures, creating an award winning, smooth ride in the county.

APAI chooses only a handful of projects, in several different categories, throughout the State of Indiana to recognize each year.  “We are proud to announce that our Folsomville Degonia and N 225 E Roads project was one of the select few in 2020.  This award is a testament to the fine paving, quality asphalt and amazing support our crews, plant personnel, truck drivers and administrative staff provide on every project, especially this one,” commented Vice President Chad Hubert.

Project Highlight: IU School of Medicine – Evansville

Evansville, Indiana – Downtown Evansville has been buzzing with the sounds of construction, notably on 5th Street at the site of the future IU School of Medicine – Evansville. Beneath the towering steel beams recently set on the site, a considerable amount of crushed limestone from our Crawford County, Indiana quarries can be found underneath and in the surrounding areas. We are looking forward to seeing the facility come to life in its journey towards completion, expected at the end of this year.  There are many exciting things going on in Downtown Evansville and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.

Steel is up on the IU Medical Center Evansville.

Tell City Repair Shop Rebuilds Equipment

The Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. Tell City Repair Shop stays busy year round rebuilding equipment for use by our employees at all locations throughout the company.  The crew spent the fall and winter months rebuilding a Caterpillar 990 Loader and Euclid R-40 Pit Truck.  To do so, the crew removed all of the components that were to be rebuilt, preformed updates on the frames, repaired all the bearing bores, and completed sandblasting and painting on the equipment. 

The crew is currently in the process of rebuilding another Caterpillar 990 Loader and repairing a recently purchased WA700 Loader.  There were several employees involved in getting these projects completed and the new ones started, including the mechanics at the Tell City Repair Shop, the sandblasters and painters from Tell City Concrete and the entire Tell City Parts Department.
