Two immigrant men came to America, determined to build a life for their families. Both had very little, could barely read or write English and did not have any family in the states to rely on. It was a time where international communication and cultural acceptance were equally very limited. Nevertheless, they were intelligent, determined and driven. It was inevitable that their perseverance and work ethic would lead to amazing success.
John’s Asphalt would quickly become a household name in Fairfield County, synonymous with great leadership and quality work.
It was all they could afford. Every other aspect of the job was done by hand. Each day, the men would estimate jobs for new customers, work until dark in extreme weather conditions, then head home to complete paperwork after hours - which took quite a while, as they were teaching themselves English along the way. They worked at least 17 hours a day, from the moment Spring arrived until the last day the asphalt plants were open in the late Fall. In the off- season, they prepared for the following year, developed partnerships with industry colleagues and built relationships with prospective customers - all while maintaining their respective homes, supporting their wives and raising 9 children, collectively.
It was an incredible journey that is a testament to the tenacity and strength John’s Asphalt was built upon.
Operating under second-generation leadership, the company continues to provide the same level of personal service to each project. The collective management of John’s Asphalt blends institutional knowledge with modern practice, providing an unparalleled quality of work.
