H&K Donates Paving Help On Sanatoga Road

That horizontal tar line across South Sanatoga Road marks the start of The H&K Group’s recent paving contribution to Lower Pottsgrove

SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove has benefited from an in-kind donation of paving services valued at about $9,000 from The H&K Group, the township Board of Commissioners recently announced, and its members credited a man who knows a good deal about paving himself – Public Works Supervisor John Fogel – with successfully soliciting the company’s help.

H&K operates the Sanatoga quarry and asphalt plant of Pottstown Trap Rock Inc. at Sanatoga and Linfield roads, and its trucks occasionally rumble down South Sanatoga Road on their way to or from the site, commission Vice President Stephen Klotz explained. A 700-foot-long portion of the road, just south of East High Street near the U.S. Route 422 overpass, had become rutted and uneven as a result, he said.

“They use it for the quarry all the time,” Klotz said of company drivers, “and it had gotten pretty rough.” So Fogel picked up the phone, the commissioner added, called H&K representatives, and effectively asked them to fix the problem their truck traffic had caused. They were under no obligation to do so, Klotz acknowledged, but agreed nonetheless.

“They donated the material, the equipment, and the manpower; everything,” Klotz said in describing the contribution, and praised Fogel for taking the initiative. “That’s the kind of employee our township has. John’s a man with a lot of connections all across the state.”
