Founded in 1986 in Tacoma, Washington, Carlson Paving Products has grown to become the asphalt paving industry’s leader in screeds, attachment innovations and commercial paver platforms.

Carlson Paving Products, Inc., acquired by Astec Industries in 2000, is the preeminent leader in highway- class asphalt screeds in North America and Australia. Building an impressive array of seven platforms in front-mount, rear-mount and fixed width orientations, Carlson has become the foremost expert on screed design and performance stretching back to the industry’s first power extendable screed in 1982. With their flagship screeds in the EZIII, EZIV, EZV and EZR2 all able to be mounted to nearly any highway- class tractor for the North American and Australian markets, contractors are able to achieve unsurpassed mat quality and unequaled wide width ability with Carlson’s leading platforms.

Along with its full range of highway-class screeds, Carlson continues to lead the way in attachment technologies that are helping make roadways safer, last longer, and improve jobsite safety. From the Carlson Safety Edge, enabling contractors to easily create thirty degree roadway edges, to the revolutionary Joint Density Attachments that are improving density figures at the longitudinal joint, Carlson’s attachment combine high performance, heavy-duty quality and ease of use. Carlson has also emerged as a leader in work zone and mobile equipment lighting with the original LED Blade LightTM, the only directional lighting platform that eliminates glare, insects, heat and that can be run on AC and DC power sources.

Carlson has also become a leader in the commercial paving class with its leading CP paver platforms in the CP100 and CP75. With their heavy-duty designs, contractor focused controls and class leading screeds, Carlson’s commercial platforms have become the contractor’s choice of paver for reliability, paving performance and quality.

With strong momentum and an ever increasing lineup of industry leading platforms, Carlson Paving Products, Inc. heads into 2016 with an optimistic outlook and expanded opportunities domestically and abroad.
