“I appreciate your close attention to our HIR project, from helping us develop the candidate roads list, totaling 9 miles, through completion. The crews were on schedule, performed as promised and we are very happy with the results. As far as you and your company fulfilling expectation, there is nothing I can think of that could have been done better. ”

– Scott K. Greene, Director, Paulding County Board of Commissioners

“We have found Gallagher Asphalt to be a professional organization with crews that are well trained. They complete the work contracted to them on time with minimal disruption to the residents near the work. They maintain the equipment needed to perform their work and have always met and or exceeded our expectations.”

– William M. Conklin, Managing Director, Ingham, MI, County Road Commission

“Gallagher Asphalt, the leader in innovative paving in the Chicago Southland, has been utilizing the process of ‘energy efficient paving’ long before it became glamorous. Hot-in-Place recycling has been the method of choice for savings for many of our clients, and with the latest economic impacts on the world’s oil markets, the past 20% savings are now pushing 50%. That savings allows us to pave many more miles per dollar invested.”

– Chris King, P.E., President, Robinson Engineering, Ltd., South Holland, IL

“I went out there and looked at the process and it’s a wonderful process. We had an old subdivision where the road was all broken up. This procedure melts the pavement that’s there and levels out the road, and then we put asphalt on top of it, and that’s the smoothest road I’ve ever ridden on. That sold me on the process. This is a new tool that Cobb County has to work with.”

“The work was finished in a professional and timely manner being completed in advance of the set time limit. We found every member of the Contractor’s crew to be very conscientious of providing a quality road surface. The end results we received are testament to that concerted effort.

The level of cooperation by this company is outstanding. We had expressed some concerns involving equipment configuration after the work performed in 2003. Gallagher Asphalt volunteered to reconfigure their equipment prior to performing the work in 2004.”

In our experience, Gallagher Asphalt is a quality company that works hard at putting the customer first. We have found them to be sensitive to our timetables and time restrictions. This Contractor shows up on the Project when they say they will be there, and does not pull off of the project until it is completed.”

– Mark J. Fisher, Project Engineer, Hamilton County, IN, Highway Department

“I have been professionally involved on projects with Gallagher Asphalt and heater scarifying since 2005, and I find them to be a very professional organization. They have managed heater scarification projects in our county with contract values that range anywhere from $100,000 to over $400,000.

I have found Gallagher Asphalt to be consistent, they have completed the work on time, they have cooperated with our contractors, communities and even more important the residents that are impacted with the construction work. Their equipment has always been well maintained and ready to work.”

– Gary M. Evans, Engineering Services Manager, Waukesha County, WI, Department of Public Works

“I have found Gallagher Asphalt to be a professional organization with crews that are well trained. They complete the work contracted to them on time with minimal disruption to the residents near the work. Having a contractor of this caliber is a huge asset to me since I have never received a complaint about them while they were in town performing work. They maintain the equipment needed to perform their work and have always met and or exceeded my expectations.”

– Patrick McAneney, Director of Public Works, Village of Glenwood, IL

“Gallagher Asphalt exceeded my expectations with their Hot In-Place Recycling work in Adams County in 2014. I will figure out ways to put their process to work for us in the future.”

– David Hook, County Engineer, Adams County, OH

“The Hot-in-Place Pavement Recycling Process is a proven cost-effective method of rehabilitating existing pavement without the need of removing and replacing with new plant mix asphalt. This particular process involves heating, scarifying, adding liquid asphalt, and re-compacting the existing pavement.”

– David Montanye, Director, Cobb County Department of Transportation, Marietta, GA

“We found the heater scarification process to not only be quite cost-effective, but also hassle-free. I believe much of this was due to how Gallagher’s team approaches a project. Their crews work safely, quickly and efficiently. It was a pleasure doing business with Gallagher and I look forward to using the process of heater scarification on several more projects in the upcoming season.”

– Mark Salvatore, D. R. Horton Inc., Libertyville, IL
