Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

Credit Agreement between Astec Industries, Inc. and certain of its Subsidiaries and Wachovia Bank, National Association.

On April 13, 2007, Astec Industries, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (Borrower) entered into an unsecured credit agreement with Wachovia Bank, National Association (Lender) whereby the Lender has agreed to extend to Borrower an unsecured line of credit loan of up to $100,000,000 including a sub-limit for letters of credit of up to $15,000,000. The new credit agreement will replace the secured credit facility the Borrower currently has in place with General Electric Capital Corporation ("GECC"). There are currently no outstanding revolving or term loan borrowings under the GECC credit facility.

The effectiveness of the new credit agreement, including access to the facility and the applicability of the principal operative affirmative and negative covenants contained therein, remains subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions. The Borrower expects to satisfy such conditions on or about May 1, 2007.

The new credit facility is unsecured and has an original term of three years (which is subject to further extensions as provided therein). The interest rate for borrowings is a function of the Adjusted LIBOR Rate or Adjusted LIBOR Market Index Rate, as elected by the Borrower, plus a margin based upon a leverage ratio pricing grid ranging between 0.5% and 1.5%. As of March 31, 2007 and if the credit facility was then in effect, the applicable margin based upon the leverage ratio pricing grid would equal 0.5%. The new credit facility requires no principal amortization and interest only payments are due, in the case of loans bearing interest at the Adjusted LIBOR Market Index Rate, monthly in arrears and, in the case of loans bearing at the Adjusted LIBOR Rate, at the end of the applicable interest period therefore.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
