Six years in the making, our asphalt plant on Omahu Road in Hastings is now producing industry standard asphalt that is fully certified and ready to be laid.
We have been building, improving, commissioning and finalising this plant so that we are sure of the quality and can stand by the product we produce. In 2020 we completed multiple lay-down trials and requested honest and detailed feedback from our trial customers to nail down and tweak the plant and the mix to get it to an excellent standard.
With quality and sustainability being important values at Russell Asphalt, the entire plant has been built specifically to lower the impact that it has on the environment. It is one of the lowest-emission plants in New Zealand due to the design of the plant and the facility that has been established around the asphalt shoot. We are also moving towards recycling existing asphalt surfaces for further use within our business.
