Asco is a neighborhood in Pleasanton, California. It is located on the Southern Pacific Railroad 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Livermore,[2] at an elevation of 351 feet (107 m). The name comes from the Alameda Sugar Company (ASC), which later changed its name to Holly Sugar Company. The company raised crops there, including sugar beets, from 1899 until the mid-20th Century.[2][3]
