Roxboro Teams-Up with MINDS


From humble beginnings with one backhoe, Roxboro Excavation has grown into a large diversified company that offers a full range of construction services ranging from earthwork and pipe work to pavement and snow removal. The company also performs environmental work such as site remediation, landfill construction and the disposal transportation of contaminated materials.

As a family asphalt producer andcontractor based in Dorval, Quebec, Roxboro had decided to build their own asphalt plant, however a criticalcomponent – plant controls – the brains of the plants wasneeded to control the blending and operations of asphalt manufacturing.

“MINDS accompanied us all the way giving us useful and pertinent insight into the control part of the design saving a lot of time and errors” says Daniel Théorêt. “As a matter of fact we bought another plant in 2010, a mobile drum mix unit and we stripped the old control system out without hesitation”.

The outcome is ultimately a win-win relationship between MINDS and Roxboro. “The relationship is more of a long-term partnership and we understand and meet the needs of contractors/producers while they remain loyal to us as their automation partner” concludes Pierre Vidaillac, CEO of Minds Inc.


MINDS will be exhibiting at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011.
