California Cities Lining Up for Free Pothole Repairs

Revolutionary Repair Technology to Fix Cities' Worst Pothole With No Strings Attached

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2013) - HEATWURX, the nation's leading eco-friendly, cost-saving, asphalt-repair-technology developer, today announced it hates potholes so much, it will go anywhere to fix them -- including California.

Using its innovative asphalt-repair equipment, HEATWURX is offering to fix the worst potholes in any California city for free. "City officials can simply give us a call to schedule the repair and we'll get rid of the worst pothole they throw at us," said Rich Giles, the company's founder.

"Our technology can fix a pothole in as few as 15 minutes, meaning less traffic delays and idling cars contributing to air pollution," said Adrian Jacobs, Vice President of Sales. "More importantly, our repairs last as long as the road itself. We don't have to come back year after year to fix the same pothole. These long-lasting results are significant -- less time, money and harmful greenhouse gases to repair roads and keep citizens safe. Many elected government officials are capitalizing on this unprecedented opportunity to repair their city's worst pothole for free."

The in-place HEATWURX process is recognized as one of the most revolutionary and respected in the nation, receiving accolades from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). Recent USACE reports noted in-place asphalt repair technology proved most effective in terms of repair times and quality for small airfields. The USACE also identified the HEATWURX HWX-30 Electric Infrared Heater and HWX-AP40 Asphalt Processor as the equipment best meeting their requirements and included the machines on its recommended equipment list. Additionally, the Technology Implementation Group of AASHTO recently selected HEATWURX as best in class.

"Now is the time to consider newer, more cost-effective ways to repair our crumbling roads," Giles added. "Federal funding for new equipment may be available through the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act, the surface transportation funding bill that set aside more than $100 billion for fiscal years 2013 and 2014. HEATWURX was founded on the principle of contributing to the preservation of our nation's infrastructure and fully supports the initiative to repair roads with the most long-lasting and cost-effective methods available. We're here to help."

So far, more than 20 cities, counties, and other entities, including CALTRANS, the City of Los Angeles Water & Power, San Diego County, Los Angeles County Public Works, the City of Chula Vista, San Bernardino County, and the City of Carlsbad, have signed on to see how the HEATWURX process works.

Headquartered in Colorado, HEATWURX is the premier developer of eco-friendly preservation and repair equipment designed to outperform alternative methods of pavement repair. As worldwide demand for sustainability continues to increase, HEATWURX is committed to providing superior solutions that reduce consumption of raw materials by re-using existing asphalt, extending the life of asphalt pavements, and decreasing the costs of recurring repairs. A leader in the pavement preservation industry, HEATWURX is proud to be identified by the Technology Implementation Group (TIG) of the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) as an additionally selected technology.
