Astec Bulk Handling Solutions (ABHS) has proudly joined the Inland Rivers Ports and Terminals Association (IRPT). As a new member, we look forward to getting to know all the members and providing solutions to your bulk handling needs.


We were pleased to participate in and personally meet many of IRPT members at the recent IPRT conference in Shreveport.  As part of our continuing support of the association and its causes, we look forward to sponsoring the upcoming IRPT board meeting in Little Rock on September 16th.   

At the meeting, we will introduce new technology that is now available for material handling in North America.
