June 26, 2013 – The Ontario
Hot Mix Producers Association (OHMPA) concluded its ‘Road Tour: Construction
Ahead' seminar series at the beginning of the month, saying it was a large success.

The 2013 seminars brought together
nearly 150 producer members, contractor representatives and suppliers throughout
the province along with MTO, municipal and consulting engineer representatives.

With more than 40 per cent
of attendees being road owners and customers from MTO and municipal sectors,
the Road Tour seminars provided a unique opportunity for members to maintain their
competitive edge.

Members who attended this
year's seminars networked with customers and participated in discussions about
what is working, what needs improving and what is changing in design, materials
and construction of asphalt paving.
