Our Business Landscape and Market Philosophy
Astec Industries, Inc. was founded in 1972 with the vision to apply creative thinking and state-of-the-art technology to traditionally low-tech industries, bolstered by a corporate culture renowned for putting customer service first. Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Astec Industries, Inc. family of companies has become a global leader in the manufacture of equipment for asphalt road building, aggregate processing, oil, gas and water well drilling and wood processing, among others.
Today Astec Industries, Inc. manufactures more than 220 products from rock crushing and screening plants to hot mix asphalt (HMA) facilities, concrete plants, water, gas and oil drilling rigs, geothermal drills, milling machines, asphalt pavers, material transfer vehicles, and wood processing equipment.
