Into The Interior
In 1985, Alaska Basic Industries' northernmost office in Fairbanks begins operating with ready-mix, sand, gravel, cement and building Materials. Bob Ballow, president of AS&G, sees the Fairbanks office growing to eventually offer the same full line of services and products customers find at AS&G.
In 1988, Anchorage loses its bid to host the 1994 Olympic Winter Games to Lillehammer, Norway.
AS&G ventured into another line of business: Alaska Soil Recycling (ASR) began operating at the asphalt plant, remediating contaminated soils.
