Blaw-Knox Celebrates 75 Years

September 28, 2010

Ingersoll Rand announced that this year marks the 75th anniversary of Blaw-Knox products in the asphalt industry. In 1931, Blaw-Knox introduced the Ord Finisher, which was the first asphalt paver constructed with ends resting on forms that could be raised or lowered. The company said that technology made it possible for the use of multi-lifts without resetting the forms. Ingersoll Rand is looking for customers to share information about the oldest Blaw-Knox paver in operation and/or in existence and the most unique application or jobsite in which a Blaw-Knox paver was used. Submissions should be sent to the anniversary website at
