Rowe began his career in 1964 working for Mitschele Contracting Company as a heavy equipment mechanic/welder; over time he progressed to shop supervisor then heavy equipment manager.
In 1981, Rowe joined Millington Quarry as vice president of equipment operation and was responsible for equipment management for all company owned quarry and asphalt locations, including specifications, acquisitions and disposals.
Millington Quarry was acquired by Tilcon in 1999 and Rowe resumed his position of vice president of equipment. He was made vice president of asset management in May of 2008, where he was responsible for the evaluation and maintenance of all Tilcon equipment, plant assets, equipment auctions and contract negotiations. Most recently, he was involved in numerous labor settlements (along with a few strikes), plant and equipment liquidation and completion of two Tilcon asphalt plants in Keasbey and Mt. Hope, N.J.
Rowe served as the National Stone Sand and Gravel (NSSGA) chairman of the human resources and equipment management committee and was a member of the NSSGA Operations Leadership Committee.
Larry is planning on staying active after his retirement by doing some consulting work in equipment and plant sales.
