Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
Posillico Materials announces the unveiling and celebration of their new rail citing and materials transfer depot. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for June 19th at 4pm, to showcase this and other energy saving and carbon reduction measures in the completion of phase one of this major capital project in conjunction with the Town of Babylon Industrial Development Association.
The project completion enables most of the materials that are required for asphalt production to be shipped via rail rather than truck. The new rail system and improved plant layout reduces fugitive dust and also eliminates 5,000 truck trips from local streets and highways. These changes result in reduced net fuel consumption and less CO2 emissions.
Since the erection of the plant in 1971, Posillico has continued to lead the region with asphalt recycling technologies and other beneficial reuses of materials that would otherwise require landfilling as waste. Additionally, these plant investments have focused on reducing fuel consumption and emissions while providing the highest quality materials and service to Posillico’s customers. Astec Industries has continued to work with Posillico’s engineering and material experts to accomplish this effort.
Posillico has grown its storage capabilities from 2 silos erected in 1971 to 5 highly efficient storage silos that currently serve their customers. Additional technologies in manufacturing include a double barrel drum which maximizes opportunities for reclaimed asphalt, and the multi-nozzle device which reduces the required placement temperature while maintaining quality.
For three generations, Posillico, Inc. has combined quality performance with a successful background in civil, materials, environmental, drilling, and consulting, which have allowed them to provide cost-effective and seamless construction solutions to complex problems their clients demand today, and will in the future. Incorporated in 1946 under the presidency of Joseph D. Posillico, Sr. as a small trucking contractor, the company has grown to become one of the top construction firms in New York. Posillico employs as many as five-hundred people, and serves the entire Tri-State Area. The new state of the art rail facility will serve to anchor Posillico’s plan to complete further capital investments which will improve overall environmental impact and create more jobs in its Farmingdale, New York campus.
