Ajax’s seven asphalt plants located in Nokomis, Punta Gorda, Palmetto, Fort Myers, Odessa, Tampa and Largo earned NAPA’s Diamond Achievement Commendation for Excellence in Asphalt Plant/Site Operations. This Commendation is a unique and respected self-assessment program that encourages and recognizes responsible asphalt operation practices and cultivates good community relations.

It clearly demonstrates a cooperate commitment to excellence with a community focus.”
The self-assessment process addresses six essential facets of the asphalt plant/site: appearance, operations, environmental practices, safety, permitting and regulatory compliance and community relations. Earning the Commendation exemplifies the commitment to excellence in all aspects of asphalt facilities, and symbolizes continuous improvement in operations and community relations.
