About ACE

ACE was founded to develop alternatives to the antiquated quality control practices currently in use throughout the aggregate industry. Having concentration on quality control in the paving sector of the aggregate industry for 20 years, Mr. Joel Costonis, Founder, Chairman and CEO of the company, sought a way to overcome challenges associated with the existing conventional practices. Our mission is to become the recognized global leader in automated aggregate testing.

At ACE we are committed to revolutionizing the way quality control tests are conducted within the aggregate industry. Incorporating our proprietary Total Integration, Total Automation Protocol (TITAP), our product line provides aggregate testing that is integrated through upgraded software and hardware to automate the testing process, including accelerated report production. Consequently, gradation testing is faster and easier to perform, and produces more traceable and accurate test data resulting in the reduction of both testing costs and risks associated with inaccurate tests.
