In 1969, Jim Bostick considered starting his own paving company. He had worked three summers for a neighbor who specialized in asphalt paving. In learning the ropes, Jim believed he could succeed on his own. At the young age of 23, with a lot of determination and only $1,675, Jim started his own company and put his name behind it. “I mostly repaired pot holes in residential areas.” recalled Jim “I didn’t have any employees or equipment. I did most of the work myself and rented equipment when I needed it.” He proudly mentioned that he paid cash for everything as he went along.As business improved, the necessity for additional staff increased. A neighbor, Jerry Hamlin, had recently become a friend of Bostick. At the time, Jerry worked for Uniroyal Tires and was about to be transferred to New York. Aware of Jerry’s desire to stay in California, Jim offered him a position at his company. He accepted, and in time became a co-owner of the company. With Jim and Jerry joined at the helm, the company quickly moved from residential jobs to commercial projects. By owning a complete line of updated and maintained equipment, the company has, according to Jim, eliminated all subcontracting and is able to maintain the highest quality standards.An integral component of their success is the company’s 50 plus dedicated employees, who are considered as much a part of the company as the owners and decision-makers. “We offer our people shared ownership in the company. Because of this, they are significantly more dedicated to the products they provide.” stated Jim.Operating for 40 years is an accomplishment and the owner’s current goal is to expand the business to coverall of California. “We want to be able to service everyone who needs our expertise.” said Jim. Headquartered in Anaheim, California, the company has two California locations. CSLB license number #341573
