Tacoma Site Closure Announcement


Dear Astec Customers,

Today we announced the closure of our manufacturing site in Tacoma, Washington. However, the manufacturing of Carlson Paving Products will continue at our other locations.

Our decision to close this facility was not an easy one, but after careful consideration we think it is a necessary step in our journey to Simplify, Focus and Grow the Astec family.

We are incredibly proud of the strong, innovative Carlson brand screed and paver products. I want to assure you that although manufacturing at the Tacoma site will cease, the Carlson product lines will continue. We will continue to support the Carlson brand equipment and be connected to our dealers and customers to ensure a smooth transition in all aspects of operations.

Thank you,

Barry Ruffalo
President & CEO, Astec Industries
