Carbide Coke Plant Foundation and Pavement Improvements


Carbide Industries has invested heavily in updating their plant operations and has chosen E-Z Construction as a trusted team member due to our focus on safety in a challenging work environment and a willingness and capability to do whatever it takes to meet their needs.  Carbide Industry is the sole supplier of calcium carbide in the United States and must continue operating at peak capacity to meet the demands of their industrial customers.  This makes it a challenge to update critical components of the plant.  E-Z Construction has met that challenge by using new and innovative construction techniques and approaching the projects with a collaborative approach and mindset.  Schedules are always critical in this plant and require extra preparation and planning to ensure there are no delays or issues that could potentially impact the plant.
