Delta Companies Inc. -- Growing for the future
Friday, August 24, 2018
Delta is a site development and highway contractor specializing in asphalt paving and road construction materials. In addition to construction activities, Delta produces aggregates, asphalt paving mixtures, emulsions and other asphalt-related products. The firm operates throughout Northeast Arkansas, Southern Illinois and Southeast Missouri, with its corporate office located in Cape Girardeau.
“We believe in the future of Cape Girardeau and surrounding communities because we believe in the people here in the Heartland,” says Zach Green, president of Delta Companies Inc. “We must continue to prepare ourselves to provide the necessary resources for that future.”
Delta supplies aggregates, or processed rocks, for asphalt pavement mixtures, ready-mix concrete and other construction activities from its numerous quarries, including a limestone quarry just south of Cape Girardeau at exit 93 off Interstate 55, a quarry in Williamsville serving the Greater Poplar Bluff area, a sand and gravel pit located in Dexter, Missouri, and its newest quarry in Jackson, Missouri, at exit 105 off Interstate 55.
The Heartland Materials Quarry, located in Jackson, became part of Delta last October to better serve its customers north of Cape Girardeau toward Perryville and Marble Hill. In addition to limestone products, this quarry also produces a high-quality agricultural lime, or “aglime.” This location will be a reliable source of the material for area farmers.
To continue growing for the future, ASA Asphalt joined the Delta Companies in March of this year. ASA is well-known and well-respected in the commercial and industrial sector throughout the Bootheel of Missouri. This acquisition brings more than a skilled workforce with experience and expertise; it also brings an additional Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Plant located in Advance, Missouri, to Delta. This raises the count to four HMA plants in Missouri and to 11 plants overall.
When asked why someone should choose to do business with Delta, Green says, “It’s simple: values. We have nine core values guiding our behavior and decisions in all business transactions. These values include safety, respect, accountability and trust. We provide exceptional value to our customers through following our core values.”
Green encourages people to view all the values and to learn more about what Delta does and where Delta does it by visiting the company website, www.DeltaCos.com.
