Paramount Petroleum Corporation & Paramount Asphalt

In 2006, Alon USA acquired Paramount Petroleum Corporation and its asphalt division, Paramount Asphalt, which operated a refinery in Paramount, California and asphalt terminals in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Also in 2006, Alon USA acquired an asphalt refinery in Long Beach, California which was added to the Paramount Petroleum West Coast Asphalt Operations. The addition of Paramount Petroleum Corporation to Alon USA’s own asphalt production operation makes the company one of the largest suppliers of high-performance asphalt products in the United States. In 2014 the Asphalt division was rebranded to Alon Asphalt Company www.alonasphaltcompany.com operating from Texas to the West Coast.

Our asphalt products include road and highway construction materials, polymer modified, emulsion asphalt, cutbacks and ground tire rubber (GTR) asphalt. Our GTR products with Wright asphalt partnership used rubber from recycled tires, an operation that has diverted approximately over 11,000,000 tires and counting from being disposed of in landfills. These reprocessed tires create an environmentally superior asphalt product and results in a quieter and longer lasting road for motorists.

Crude Flexibility Project

We are excited about our proposed Crude Flexibility Project and modernization of the Alon USA Bakersfield Refinery. The project will bring economic growth and hundreds of high-paying jobs to Bakersfield and the entire County of Kern. The project will allow us to process a wider variety of crude oil to supply clean burning transportation fuels for motorists. Approval of the Crude Flexibility Project will not increase the capacity or throughput of the refinery.
