In October, Sloan Construction acquired Lakeside Asphalt located in Piedmont, SC. The facility is located on Highway 20, just south of I-85 on the west side of Greenville. Sloan will maintain and operate the plant at its current location. With this acquisition, Sloan will be in a much stronger position to compete in portions of the Greenville market that have been geographically challenging in the past years. The plant’s position is ideal for reaching projects west of town on the I-85 corridor, and along both I-185 and I-385. This addition to our already strong position in the South Carolina highway construction industry will help us capitalize on the rising market. Now a greater part of the Upstate will be available to grow and prove our abilities to a wider audience. Along with the plant purchase, we welcome three new employees to Sloan. Paul Benton, JJ Anderson, and Jeff Taylor. Please welcome them to the Sloan family and make them feel at home.
