● Convenient overhead, on scale loading

The Terrell plant represents Blacklidge Emulsions’ commitment to current and future customers in Texas. “We at Blacklidge are very excited to expand our operations and products in Texas. With the Terrell plant, we’ve been able to put our flag in the ground and show Texas contractors, D.O.T. and municipalities that we are fully committed to helping them build safer, longer lasting roads,” said Matt Renick, Blacklidge’s Chief Operations Officer.
