Turner: Expecting business to pick up after November’s election

Editor’s note: As part of our Road to Recovery coverage, P&Q is turning to some of the industry’s leaders for their takes on the road ahead. This month, leaders were posed with the following question: What is your expectation for aggregate demand in the coming months? Where do you anticipate the greatest demand to come from, and are there areas where you anticipate demand shortcomings?

Demand for aggregate is currently down because funding has stopped several state and Department of Transportation projects.

While there are certainly infrastructure hotspots like Nashville and Atlanta, we are in need of an infrastructure bill to generate pre-COVID demand. The compounding effect of COVID-19 and the election has increased uncertainty and caused companies to hold tight to capex dollars for the near term.

Post-election and into the new year, we expect to see more projects coming online as companies plan ahead to meet demand generated by a possible infrastructure bill. We continue to position Turner Mining Group to be ready for a quick uptick in contract mining services to support the aggregate industry.
