An asphalt manufacturer and paving contractor has expanded its reach in northern and central New Jersey with the addition of a new location in Union County.
American Asphalt Co., which is based in West Collingswood Heights, announced its acquisition of asphalt maintenance assets from Dan Swayze and Son. The new location is 2504 Plainfield Ave. in Scotch Plains, which it says will allow it to competitively meet the asphalt maintenance needs of many new and current customers throughout the Garden State.
“Our company is the only employee-owned company in the asphalt paving business in New Jersey,” said Robert Brown, American Asphalt’s president. “This makes all of our employees responsible for safety, quality and a great customer experience, as they are rewarded by long-term growth and stability of the company.”
By expanding its reach in North Jersey, American Asphalt has the ability to help others by employing more crews and serving the community with safer parking lots, according to a news release. While it will be providing parking lot maintenance services such as seal coating, crack sealing and patch repairs, the company will work with industry paving partners to provide services in the Union, Middlesex, Monmouth, Essex, Somerset and other counties.
