Notes From the Road

  • Nathali Parker Appointed to Governor's Commission for Women

    TXAPA member Nathali Parker, owner and president of KLP Commercial, a heavy civil wholesale construction materials company, has been appointed to Governor Greg Abbott's Commission For Women.

  • A History of Dedication to Quality

    Over the past few years, I have had the good fortune to chronicle the history of TXAPA in a series of articles that have appeared in the association's fine quarterly publication, Texas Asphalt. With the challenges and growing complexities of our industry, I have found a periodic view of our past to be quite instructive and even inspiring.

  • TXAPA Pioneers APAC Texas, Inc.

    It would be difficult to imagine the asphalt industry in Texas without the APAC companies. Either APAC or one of its forerunner companies has been on the asphalt scene in Texas for over a century since 1906 to be exact. Their lineage goes directly to Frederick J. Warren, who filed a patent for a bitulithic pavement, a mixture of bitumen and aggregate.

  • TXAPA Pioneers Zack Burkett Co.

    Like millions of Americans at the end of World War II, Zack Burkett Jr. was ready to get on with his life. He had served in the U.S. Navy on a Landing Ship Mechanized in the South Pacific until the conclusion of the War, and he was anxious to return to his new bride Lucile and complete his education. Zack had been studying civil engineering at the University of Texas, where he met and courted Lucile. With the end of the war and his military service completed, Zack returned home to Graham, completed his civil engineering degree by correspondence, started raising a family, and began one of the most interesting and unique careers of the heavy construction industry in Texas.
