CASA GRANDE, Ariz., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – With eight+ years of winning municipality and utility bids across the east coast, the patented eco-friendly cold mix asphalt called GreenPatch bridges a partnership with Arizona-based packager and distributor Paragon Concrete Products positioning a major market presence in the western states.
Paragon operations manager Bret Reinhard expresses confidence that handling his territory will bring widespread reception for the “green” asphalt in all western retailers. “Sustainable products and LEED are in big demand in our area right now,” states Reinhard. “Green is heavily promoted in our industry… you see it everywhere over the web… with the fact that GreenPatch is very reasonably priced, (it’s) safe to use and… it’s so easy to work with, a product this good won’t have any problems getting accepted out here!”
“Weeks of testing went very well… it packs and looks good- … for homeowners, it’s not as oily and leaves no residue! We tested GreenPatch side by side with another cold patch product and GreenPatch turned out even better,” adds Reinhard. “Being Green is such a selling point — this one came my way and it instantly caught my attention just for the name alone.”
Cold Mix Manufacturing (College Point, NY), the makers of GreenPatch sealed the reselling partnership with Paragon due to their history in the construction materials industry and the strength of their western states. ”If you go to any construction trade show, Paragon has been a respected name for so many building materials… that having them carry GreenPatch adds to our credibility and our availability in the southwest,” says Dario Amicucci, president of Cold Mix Manufacturing.
Paragon Concrete Products originated as a manufacturing plant in Southern California in the early 60′s as Paragon Building Products. By 1989, they have restructured as a bagging and selling plant and added locations in Casa Grande, Phoenix, Tuscon (AZ) and Henderson Nevada.
GreenPatch was developed in the spring of 2007 by Cold Mix Manufacturing (of Flushing, NY) by: CMM, Dario Amicucci and is promoted for commercial, municipal and private use as an eco-safe, biodegradable, high-performance and cost-effective asphalt repair using zero petroleum solvents and eliminating harmful VOC’s and carcinogens.
