Eurovia Specialist Treatments | Business Manager appointed new Road Surface Treatments Association chairman
Eurovia Specialist Treatments Business Manager Kevin Amos has been appointed as the new chairman of the Road Surface Treatments Association (RSTA).
Kevin officially started the role on Thursday 12 April and for the next 12 months he will lead the membership organisation which is the focal point for the road surface maintenance industry.
Kevin began his career as a 16-year-old apprentice at Gloucestershire County Council, before he transferred to Gloucestershire Contracting in 1989, and then to Ringway in 1998.
During his career at Ringway he was part of the team that set up a specialist treatments division and he has now been with Eurovia Specialist Treatments for 18 years.
Kevin has been heavily involved with the RSTA for many years, and served as Chairman of the Slurry Surfacing Contractors’ Association (SSCA).
He said: “Having worked in the industry for many years, it is a huge privilege to represent my fellow members who are responsible for maintaining our roads and helping to keep Britain on the move.
“I look forward to working with the RSTA and sharing the experience and knowledge I have forged with EST with others to drive the industry forwards.”
Kevin became a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) five years ago and represents the UK on the BS510 committee for microsurfacing.
RSTA members include national and local contracting companies, local authority direct labour organisations, material and equipment suppliers.
Eurovia Specialist Treatments is a major contributor to the association and has contributed knowledge and experience from working on numerous contracts throughout the UK.
