Kolberg-Pioneer has received the Astec Industries Founder’s Award for outstanding performance during 2015.

The annual award was established in 2014 to recognise the top-performing individual subsidiary of Astec Industries. Kolberg-Pioneer is one of three Astec Industries companies that make up KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens, which manufactures equipment for the aggregate, construction and recycling industries.

“We are very pleased to receive the Astec Industries Founder’s Award this year,” said the company’s president, Jeff May.

“The company had another excellent year in 2015, and we are proud to be recognised for this honour, especially considering the other Astec Industries companies who could have received this award.

“As usual, the dedication and hard work displayed by our associates was exemplary and showed their commitment to providing the best equipment value and service in the industry.”

“We’d especially like to thank our many dealers and customers for their continued support and trust in us,” he added.

“Without them, we know none of this would have been possible.”
