The asphalt manufacturing firm Ergon Asphalt & Emulsions Inc.
(EA&E), Jackson, Miss., has entered into an agreement with NuStar Energy
L.P. to market asphalt from NuStar’s terminal in Pittsburg, Calif. The agreement allows EA&E to expand its offerings in northern California to include paving grade, polymer-modified and other asphalt products, in addition to the pavement preservation products the company currently provides in the area.
EA&E has more than 30 locations throughout the United States.
Patrick Nation, Ergon’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, says, “We’re excited to have the opportunity to introduce Ergon Asphalt and Emulsions to northern California. Our agreement with NuStar lets us introduce our vision of providing innovative resources to the marketplace.”
J. Baxter Burns II, president of EA&E, notes, “We are continually looking for opportunities to expand our footprint in North America. This agreement was a perfect fit because it utilizes existing assets, coupled with strategic partnerships, to broaden our asphalt business in California.”
EA&E’s asphalt products will be marketed from NuStar’s terminal beginning Jan. 1, 2014.
