Ashland to Sell Paving Unit

The largest road-building company in North America is being sold.

Officials with Ashland Paving and Construction, or APACK, announced the $1.3 billion deal Monday.

APACK operates in 14 Southern and Midwestern states. The company has a branch office in Dothan.

A memo to local employees reportedly says they should not be affected by the sale. APACK currently has nearly 10,000 workers.

The sale to a corporation based in Ireland should be completed by the end of this month.
