Century Asphalt Materials was founded in 1998 by the Angel Brothers of Baytown Texas. Glenn, Greg, & Gary Angel purchased their first Astec Double Barrel HMA plant and located it in Baytown, just miles away from their construction company headquarters. The Baytown plant primarily supplied hot mix asphalt to the construction company, Angel Brothers Enterprises. In 2001, Century acquired a second asphalt plant from Cemex, Inc. located in downtown Houston, known as our Navigation Plant. The addition significantly increased Century’s customer base and production capabilities. In 2003, a third Astec plant was purchased and constructed in Cemex’s Katy, TX rail terminal.
Century’s largest expansion occurred in November of 2004, when it acquired Martin Marietta Material’s Houston hot mix operations. The MMM acquisition added 5 hot mix plants to Century’s asphalt production network in Houston for a total of 8 HMA plants.
Century continued its expansion in 2008 with the purchase of Ryan Material’s asphalt plant in New Braunfels, Texas. This plant addition gave Century the ability to supply the Hill County of Texas along the I-35 corridor from San Antonio to Austin. In 2010 Century again expanded its Hill Country footprint by acquiring Knife River’s San Antonio and Austin hot mix business.
In 2012, the Angel’s again grew their integrated production and placement operations into South Texas with greenfield HMA plants in Laredo, Dilley & Three Rivers Texas to support the infrastructure maintenance demands as a result of the Eagleford shale boom.
While Century has built a generational reputation for being a quality market leader in hot mix asphalt production Texas, Century has diversified its product offerings to include recycled crushed concrete products and sand mining in Houston Texas as well as sand and gravel mining operations in Central and South Texas.
In 20 years, Century Asphalt has grown from a single plant operation to a 16 asphalt plant network throughout Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Laredo Texas. Century credits its phenomenal growth over the years to 2 basic core values:
Produce QUALITY products!
Provide unequaled SERVICE!
Century is PAVING THE FUTURE of Texas with these core values in mind.
