Quality Control

Our Quality Control department consists of eight team members who represent well over 50 years of combined experience.  In addition to performing all of the quality control testing for WQI, we also offer our services to other area companies.  We work not only with crushed and natural aggregates, but also with Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA), Portland Cement Concrete (PCC), and recycled pavement materials.  Our aggregate testing services include gradation and quality reports.  We have DOT certified aggregate technicians in both Iowa and Illinois.  We also have the full suite of equipment necessary to prepare HMA mix designs and process HMA samples from paving projects.  Wendling’s DOT certified technicians also provide plant inspection services to nearby asphalt and ready-mix plants.  Contact our department manager today and allow us to prove to you that we are committed to being the best at what we do!
