Utah Asphalt Thrives as a Century Old Family Business Continues to Grow

Murray, UT -- (SBWire) -- 11/28/2012 --Asphalt is everywhere. There are more than two millions miles of roads and highways in the US, and almost all of them are asphalt, not to mention sidewalks, parking lots and driveways that result in four hundred million tons of asphalt being produced in America every year. With all that asphalt out there, it takes some serious businesses to lay it, and Utah Asphalt has serious businesses aplenty.

Eckles Paving, a family run Salt Lake Paving Company since 1900, the company has been steadily expanding ever since to include other family run businesses throughout Utah, such as CJ Asphalt and Park City, Utah Sealcoat. Each of these companies originally had its own particular strengths and applications, but combined, they are proving a force to be reckoned with.

The company now provides every conceivable asphalt service available, and their newly remodelled website serves as a portfolio of their work as well as a repository for information on the companies and their services. The site features a prominent dynamic content gallery featuring some of the major applications of their craft, and the media gallery offers both high quality imagery and original video content to further explain their practices and results.

Although the business is proud to be the leading paving company in Utah they stay true to their family culture. A spokesperson explains:

“Our business has expanded and thrived over one hundred years which is difficult to do particularly in the volatile construction industry. Our success is obviously due to our quality, expertise and pricing but we believe it’s all tied together with a family run business ethic. When you run a family business you want to provide the best service every time because it’s your family’s reputation on the line. This culture has served us well for over one hundred years and it continues to drive us forward.”

The business offers a wide range of services offering solutions to all sorts of paving problems. A spokesperson for Utah Asphalt explained,

“There’s no job too big, too small or too technical for us. We’ve done driveways and we’ve done highways, we’ve done sidewalks and we’ve done parking lots, we’ve sealed cracks and seal coated huge expanses, we work in asphalt and concrete, we can take care of patching, striping, sweeping and grading. Between our sister companies, there’s nothing we can’t do in this industry, which is why we’ve become known simply as Utah Asphalt- there’s no reason to go to anybody else in this state.”
