J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc., A CRH Company, received the Asphalt Pavement Association of Indiana’s (APAI) Quality Pavement Award for a paving project at North Posey Junior Senior High School in Poseyville, Indiana earlier this month at the Association’s Awards Luncheon.  The project was recognized as the winner in the Governmental Construction category.

Bryan Rucker, Senior Estimator & Project Manager at J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. accepted the award on behalf of the company and paving crews responsible for the pristine pavement placed at the high school in July of 2019, just before the start of school.  Rucker thanked the Association and members in attendance for the opportunity and recognition of our team’s hard work.

“APAI is a valuable industry partner that we are thankful to be a member of,” mentioned Chad Hubert, Vice President at J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. “This award is a testament to the dedication and top-notch service our employees deliver, day in and day out, from the plants who produce our asphalt, to the drivers who deliver it, and everyone in between.”  Hubert further noted, “we are also extremely fortunate to have experienced and knowledgeable paving crews who worked above and beyond to meet our customer’s intensely tight deadline to be ready by the start of school.”

HB 1002 Moves to Indiana Senate

Monday, February 27th, 2017

We would like to thank the Indiana State House of Representatives for their bold plan to improve Indiana’s Interstates, bridges, roads and streets.  Increased state and local funding will improve the lives of every Hoosier and keep Indiana the Crossroads of America.

As House Bill 1002 moves to the Indiana Senate, we hope that its fair, user pays based approach continues to get support and the bill is able to move to the Governor for his signature.  J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc. would like to extend a genuine thank you to all the Area Representatives who supported this bill and have put Indiana’s drivers and truckers at the top of their agenda.
