Reed & Graham Inc


Reed & Graham, Inc. is a privately owned corporation in California that has been providing services in the road construction industry since 1928. The company provides many products and services related to the construction, maintenance, and testing of asphalt surfaces.
Charles E. "Ted" Reed, and his brother George, started the construction business in 1921. They took reclamation work and operated in and around the Tracy-Stockton area. The reclamation work consisted of building levees and maintaining irrigation districts. By the mid-20's, the company remained active by grading and paving roads in the San Joaquin County. In 1925, the company became mechanized when the Reeds bought some caterpillar tractors and some scrapers. The business continued to expand, and in 1952, asphalt production increased to 40,000 tons of asphalt a year. In 1955, the company incorporated as Reed & Graham, Inc. and to meet the demand for faster production of hot mix, installed its first tower asphalt plant at the Sunol Street site.
Reed & Graham, Inc. constantly adapts new methods of production of asphalt and asphalt products and new methods of alternative technology for recycling. Through research and investigation of available technology, Reed & Graham, Inc. ensures that environmental concerns are dealt with prior to recycling of asphalt materials.
