October 3, 2017 - When it comes to a company the size of Kelly Panteluk Construction Ltd. (KPCL), keeping it staffed with qualified and competent people comes with it some challenges.

A conveyor passes it back into a twin-shafted pug mill where it is thoroughly mixed with a rejuvenating agent and 20 per cent virgin asphalt. Another conveyor dumps it into a paving hopper. It is laid down and compacted to the correct density. Twenty minutes later, the freshly recycled layer of pavement is ready to drive on.
July 29, 2016 - As in other industries, asphalt companies are not immune to the advances of multi-nationals interested in expanding operations through the acquisition of successful businesses. Multi-generational, family-run companies, however, offer a particular level of experience, expertise and efficiency that is difficult to ramp up in a larger organization.
