Staying Safe on Road Construction Sites: Tips For Workers

by Jordan Duras

When working on a road construction site, it is easy to get so lost in the work that your safety and the safety of those around you can fall out of focus. However, the truth is road construction is dangerous work. In 2015, there were 700 motor vehicle traffic crashes in the United States, which is the equivalent of about 1.9 work zone crashes per day across the country. These crashes not only are a danger to the workers, but also the drivers navigating through the work zones. Luckily, there are ways to decrease the occurrences of these incidents. Find out more in our latest guest blog.

Branch Spotlight: Meet Kenseal's Beltsville Team!

by A.H. Harris

Located right outside of our nation’s capital, Kenseal Beltsville has accomplished so much since its opening in 1984. It all began with Mike Blair, current manager of Kenseal Beltsville, making calls to potential customers in the Washington metropolitan area in May of that year. It was a grassroots effort - started by selling product out of his car from our former West Orange, NJ office. Fast forward to later that summer, Bill Lineburg (now a Senior Account Manager out of Kenseal Chantilly) joined the team and helped open a location on Bacon Drive, across from our current warehouse. After many successful years in Beltsville, Kenseal expanded yet again in the greater DC area with a location in Chantilly, VA.

Harris Partner Profile: Perma-Patch

by A.H. Harris

We want our construction community to learn more about our Harris vendors and let them share their story. That's why we are running our "Partner Profiles" blog series. Today, we're thrilled to feature our friends at Perma-Patch. Their product is one of our customer favorites, easy to use & a great value. The parent company of Perma-Patch, National Paving and Contracting Company, was formed in 1929 in Baltimore, Maryland and rapidly became one of the leading general contracting and road pavers in the State of Maryland. National Paving evolved from a contracting and paving company into a specialty road repair manufacturer when Perma-Patch was developed in the late 1970s. Perma-Patch is now distributed throughout the United States and International markets. Let's hear their story!
