Ingersoll Rand, Blaw-Knox: Paving the Way for 75 Years

Wed February 08, 2006 - National Edition
Construction Equipment Guide

Ingersoll Rand Company Limited is preparing to celebrate a major milestone in the paving industry with the company’s Blaw-Knox product line.

Ingersoll Rand purchased Blaw-Knox in 1995, and for the last decade has been committed to honoring its strong heritage in the paving industry. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Blaw-Knox’s entrance into asphalt paving equipment and Ingersoll Rand is leading the celebration by reflecting on its legacy in the road construction industry.

In 1931, Blaw-Knox introduced the Ord Finisher for asphalt paving. The machine was the first paver constructed with ends resting on forms that could be raised or lowered. This technology made it possible for the use of multi-lifts without resetting the forms. Paving professionals recognized the innovation brought to the industry by Blaw-Knox, and through the years have turned to them and Ingersoll Rand as the standard for paving products.

Ingersoll Rand invites all paving professionals to celebrate the heritage of Blaw-Knox products throughout 2006, and asks customers to share information on:

• The oldest Blaw-Knox paver in operation.

• The oldest Blaw-Knox paver in existence.

• The most unique application in which a Blaw-Knox paver was used.

• The most unique job site on which a Blaw-Knox paver was used.

In addition to these categories, customers and dealers are encouraged to submit unique stories or experiences with Blaw-Knox or Ingersoll Rand paving equipment.

Submissions can be entered on the Ingersoll Rand Blaw-Knox 75th Anniversary Web.

Ingersoll Rand will publish articles, photos, and interviews based on information customers submit. Prizes also will be awarded to those whose stories are used during the celebration.
