Asphalt Equipment AppraisersDemand for asphalt paving products from the highway and road construction markets is improving. The industry’s overall performance was extremely weak over the five year period prior to 2011/2012.

Continued improvements in the domestic economy and anticipated increases in outlays for infrastructure and building construction support continued growth in the asphalt production industry. As the construction markets improve, asphalt manufacturers will face similar growth.

CEA recently appraised the machinery & equipment of an asphalt production and paving company. The highest valued asset was a 400 ton per hour continuous mix asphalt plant with a rap system. Other equipment of note included a portable aggregate screening plant.

Appraisal Conclusion: The asphalt plant and portable screening plant are newer and in very good condition. Resultantly, these items had high concluded values. In general, demand for used asphalt related production equipment and their corresponding values are definitely improving!
