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.

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.

Perma-Patch is now distributed throughout the United States and International markets. Let's hear their story!
