Quality Control

The Karson Group recognizes the importance of providing customers with products that are “on spec” to ensure that projects run efficiently and are not held up due to incorrect or poor quality products. Their Quality Control department was created to perform regular testing of our aggregates and asphalt to ensure that they not only meet specification, but conform to The Karson Group's high standards of approval.
