“Rochester Asphalt Materials purchased our first Libra control in 1992. Libra was our choice because of their superior weighing accuracy; automatic ticket transfer capabilities; and willingness to meet our exacting requirements. We now have Libra controls on 7 batch plants with 5 of them having RAP proportioning controls, 4 drum mix plants with silo loadout, and the Enterprise Information Server. Through the years, Libra has never let us down or left us hanging with their products or service.”

“Happy to hear that Libra is still going strong - no surprise to me - great people, expertise, and products.

Libra was instrumental in Graniterock winning the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. As manager of Quality Support at the time, Graniterock wanted to upgrade and standardize our asphalt plants with Batching Control Systems that would allow us to provide the batching accuracy we needed to become the best quality supplier in our market. After our thorough evaluation of products on the market we selected the top two qualifiers and installed their batching control systems in two similar plants.

After a 6 month trial, we selected the best performer which ended up being Libra. Three key factors that influenced our decision were:

1. Batching Accuracy - we utilized Statistical Process Control to monitor batching performance of the two systems. Libra outperformed the competitor's system improving our batching accuracy from a 1.5 to a 6 Sigma Quality (75% yield good to a 99% yield good). This improved our asphalt product quality, and improved our ability to control our production costs.

2. Support - from installation to on-going support, Libra always gave us excellent service and support. The support we received was timely and of the highest quality by qualified technicians.

3. Quality Product - once installed their controls were worry free - they performed as promised and proved to be an excellent investment.

I highly recommend Libra Systems and would be happy to share more details regarding the Libra / Graniterock partnership.”

“I just wanted to send you a quick note that we've successfully delivered the technical implementation to/from EIS to the clients, and processing of the tickets back into our ERP application. All of the appropriate automations have been implemented with very few, if any, "hitches" in the journey.

From my perspective, the installation and configuration were relatively simple, and that's kudos to the expertise of your people (namely Doug Esquirell whom I've mostly worked with), as well as the good design of your company's software. To add, Doug has been so useful, helpful and a total pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with him in the future. - Nothing like a highly efficient delivery!

On behalf of Suit-Kote Corporation, please give our best regards to the entire Libra Systems team!”

“I wanted to let the Libra team know that there is a very happy customer in California. The installation of the new system went off without a hitch. We appreciate all of the efforts to assist us in this emergency situation. We understand that Tom, Smitty and Lee were heavily involved and put in some long hours to make the whole installation look easy. By 10 a.m. Monday morning, Caltrans had re-certified the plant and we were on our way!”
