Pozzolanic Contracting & Supply Co., Inc. began in 1982 as a road construction supply business providing equipment, personnel, and material to blend hydrated lime and fly ash with water and stone at the stone producers site to produce a strong, long-lasting base course material.
Today Pozzolanic is a leader for in-place mixing services on public and private projects throughout the Southeast performing lime-soil stabilization, soil-cement stabilization, cement-treated base course, soil modification, soil drying, and full-depth reclamation.
The word pozzolanic is used to describe the reaction that takes place when combining reactive admixtures (lime, cement, fly ash, and others) to produce a strong cementious compound and is derived from a Latin word: Pozzulana, which refers to the volcanic ash near the city of Pozzuoli (now a suburb of Naples), Italy. The Romans mixed the volcanic ash with lime to produce a stable concrete-like material used to make bricks, build roads, underwater piers, and buildings. Its durability can still be witnessed today, over 2,000 years later.
