Manor, TexasErgon Asphalt & Emulsions Inc. of Jackson, Miss., has received approval to build a new asphalt terminal in Manor, Texas. Construction is scheduled to begin early this year and completion is expected to be ready in time for the 2017 road construction and paving season.

Located about 15 miles from downtown Austin, the new facility will span about 27 acres. The terminal will provide access to nearby interstates thoroughfares for direct customer sales, and will accommodate inbound rail and trucks.

Ergon Asphalt’s facility will house neat and polymer modified asphalt products used in paving and asphalt emulsion production. The bulk storage will support Ergon A&E’s Texas emulsion plants, in addition to marketing paving and sealing-grade hot products.

The Manor terminal will bring 10 to 15 new jobs upon completion, including positions in operations, sales & marketing, management, and facility maintenance.
