NJAPA’s mission is to promote the broadest application of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) through the support of public policies that enhance the general business environment and that value the development and maintenance of the transportation infrastructure.
The Association promotes the production and installation of quality HMA, by participating in the development of application oriented design and quality control specifications. NJAPA enhances its working relationships with regulators, legislators, specifiers and other trade associations.
These enhanced relationships increase the effectiveness with which the Association facilitates the transfer of new technology in both design and construction.
Asphalt is one of the most familiar, universally used materials in our world. The uncommon common substance is part of the Interstate highways that get us across the country. Asphalt roads bring us home, and asphalt driveways add to the beauty and value of our neighborhoods. The 4,000 asphalt plants across the country are part of our communities, and the production of 500 million tons of asphalt pavement material every year supports more than 300,000 American jobs.
