OAKWOOD - Visitors came from around the world to FAE USA's recent open hosue and anniversary celebration in Oakwood.<br />
Oakwood Mayor Lamar Scroggs and representatives of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce were also on hand for the ceremony.<br />
The event was highlighted by an equipment demonstration. At the first demo site, a rock crusher worked five inches deep to crush rocks and grind asphalt. The Perma-Zyme product demonstration showed how the grinded asphalt could be recycled to rebuild a road.<br />

"We are continuously developing new products to satisfy the needs of our customers" said Giorgio Carera, CEO of FAE USA.
