Rosedale – Grand Opening
June 19, 2012
In 1999, Maryland Paving acquired the Texas and Churchville facilities and also wanted to obtain the Rosedale plant in order to completely cover the entire metropolitan area. Ten years later this goal has been achieved! Maryland Paving negotiated a long term lease with the Comer family and took ownership of the location in 2011.
When driving down Batavia Farm Road towards the entrance of the Rosedale facility it is hard to believe that this is the same property as it was approximately 10 years ago. Great teamwork between Gray & Son and Maryland Paving has created a new state of the art environmentally friendly asphalt plant and has made great strides with the community to make this a very friendly and easy transition.
The existing property was rundown and obsolete so the decision was made to demolish the old facility and install a new 400 ton per hour Astec Double Barrel plant with warm mix capabilities. The plant has three, 300 ton silos with expansion capability of 5 more. The advanced computer system uses only necessary motor current as well as lighting voltages 50% more efficient than current packages on our other plants. The site is permitted for recycle crushing and has the capability of blending multiple rap sources in its mixes.
In its strategic location Rosedale is the gateway to Baltimore City for new business opportunities, as well as the southeast side of Baltimore County with a possibility of targeting jobs in Anne Arundel County. The new Maryland Paving logo displayed on the silos can be seen from many directions including the 695 Beltway.
Rosedale started producing asphalt in early March and completed many jobs in the 2012 season. We have hit the ground running and are extremely excited about the opportunity for future growth and success.
The Grand Opening and ribbon cutting for the Rosedale facility took place on June 19th, 2012.
