About D&H Equipment

Thank you for the opportunity to familiarize you with D&H Equipment, LTD. We are a family-owned, Texas-friendly business specializing in building durable equipment for satisfied customers throughout the world. Our focus is on top quality asphalt blending plants and equipment, individually built for each customer’s needs and requirements.

When Howard Cox started his paving company in 1967, his work was primarily in asphalt paving, chip seal, and road base. Since 1983, his company’s focus has increasingly been on producing asphalt rubber and micro-surfacing. During this time, they made their own equipment for blending and modifying asphalt. Using his specialized asphalt blending equipment, we worked with Shell Chemical and Kraton Polymers to mix the first SBS polymer asphalts - even before the PG grading specs came out.

His search for specialized machinery to create these new blends eventually resulted in D&H Equipment, LTD being founded in 2004 to build the reliable and durable equipment required. Utilizing his first-hand experience working with asphalt at his father’s company, Andy Cox now serves as President of D&H Equipment.

His focus is to concentrate on meeting this growing demand for equipment by producing quality components for modified asphalt production.

Active now in approximately twenty countries and on six continents, D&H Equipment’s plants operate for our customers worldwide. We are dedicated to being the one source for all your asphalt modification needs. While other manufacturers sub out to fabrication shops owned by others, D&H is proud of the quality and control we maintain by building all of our own proprietary equipment in our Blanco, Texas facility.

When you purchase our equipment, we also provide the on-the-job training necessary to operate your equipment to its fullest potential. Our trainers and technicians have day-to-day experience with our machinery, terminal operations, and paving jobsites. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like additional information. We look forward to discussing a possible venture working with you and your company.

Experience

Our levels of experience run deep. For three generations, our family has worked in the contracting side of blending modified asphalt and now includes more than 32 years working with and 20 years building modified asphalt blending plants. We have taken our best knowledge of using crumb rubber and polymers and utilized it to make the most durable and user-friendly blenders on the market. The professional level of our management team members is equally impressive. Most team members (from our President to technicians to welders and fabricators) bring 10, 15, or even 20+ years of experience in their areas of expertise. Combined, we have more than 200 years’ worth of reasons to make you feel comfortable with our “know how.”

Equipment

D&H Equipment LTD offers a much wider range of options by customizing each plant to our customer’s unique needs. This approach has given our team a wide range of experience in handling many different materials and processes. These processes have ranged from fully-automated single-pass in-line milling to basic manual batch processing, from 8 tons to 60+ tons per hour production rates, from asphalt rubber to polymer concentrates to crack seal to waxes to crosslinking powders and pastes and many more. Every product from D&H is the result of many years of continual improvement and design revision to provide optimal solutions. Let D&H use our experience to provide you the right equipment.

The motors, gear reducers and many of our machines’ parts are also universally available in all large cities throughout the world. This is a built-in advantage to our design. D&H heating coil design includes high temperature resistance and exceeds industrial standards for fast, efficient heat. The valves we use are standardized to withstand high heat and we provide this feature at no extra cost.
