From the Refinery to the Road In 1978, Ergon built a crude oil refinery in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Residue from processing, also called asphalt flux, was used to manufacture asphalt products at the refinery. As our crude oil processing capacity increased, so did asphalt production capabilities. This led to the need to distinguish Ergon’s asphalt relations from the refining business.
We sold our first load of asphalt in 1980, and on September 23, 1982, Ergon A&E incorporated and has since grown to become the largest asphalt marketer in North America.
Throughout Ergon A&E, and the entire Ergon family of companies, our horizons have expanded since our beginning, but our mission remains the same.
Meet needs. Support families. Serve customers.
This mission stems from the Ergon culture which was defined by one man, our founder Leslie Lampton. Driven by the values of hard work, customer service, reliable supply and quality products, Ergon has grown steadily and strategically over the years to become a well-diversified global organization, employing approximately 3,500 people around the world. Second- and third-generation members of the Lampton family serve in various businesses throughout the organization.
