Do you care about
maintaining quality roads, saving money and protecting the
well-being of your employees? So do we.
Providing quality equipment and products to
the road maintenance industry is the mission of MD Roadsavers. I
founded the company in 2001, to better meet the need for practical
and economical road maintenance equipment, but its roots go back
further than that.
The MD Roadsavers philosophy
is built from first-hand experience. I worked for the township of
Blandford-Blenheim for several years, as their chief building
official and drainage superintendent. In that time, I learned a lot
about the way things work in a municipality, and about things that
can, and should, work better.
In 1993, at an A.O.R.S. trade show, in Listowel, Ontario, I found
the opportunity of a lifetime. An Alberta company was looking for an
Ontario distributor of a gravel-saving device called The Retriever.
I really believed in this product, and so, in June 1993, I started
my own company.
I began to develop the Pavement Edger in 1996, with the assistance
of a local road superintendent. We came up with a device that could
be mounted to a dump truck, using existing snowplow hydraulics.
Following the surface of the road, it releases a controlled stream
of asphalt that is compacted by the truckšs own rear wheels. What
once took three men days to complete could now be done in hours by
one operator sitting comfortably and safely in the cab.
We applied for US and Canadian patents on the Pavement Edger, and
continue to fine-tune it.
In the hands of our many customers, the Pavement Edger has proven
itself more useful and versatile than wešd ever thought. Donšt take
my word for it. Take a look at some of our before and after photos,
and read our testimonials. Wešre sure youšll see the value of
working smarter, not harder.
With the success of the Retriever, we added other products,
particularly our star attraction - the Pavement Edger. True to the
philosophy of working smarter, not harder, the Pavement Edger was
born of the simple thought that there has to be a better way to lay
asphalt. The human race has put men on the moon, but still crews of
workers are required to stand in the hot sun, twisting and turning
with shovels full of hot asphalt, as the traffic flies by them.
