Paving: 2022 Year in Review
The Paving Group is at the heart of what we do, since the day Larry Keeley set up his first trailer in 1976 in Sauget, IL. Growing from that first trailer to a nationwide Paving company with over 200+ team members in almost every state, the Paving Group is taking advantage of this growth and savoring every moment. With the Keeley mission as their guide, the Paving Group puts an unmatched emphasis on being a customer-centric partner. With their customers at the forefront of their minds every single day, they have been able to grow to new heights at an exponential rate. This attitude and culture has also led to an incredibly high customer retention rate year over year, bringing about new relationships and strengthening existing relationships, all while exceeding expectations in the following areas:
Maintenance | Capital | Program Development & Management
Asphalt | Concrete | Milling | Seal Coat | Striping | Crack Filling | Fencing
“2022 has been an incredible year for the Paving Group. We exceeded our revenue and gross margin goals set at the end of 2021 while also having an incredibly safe year. We had a number of internal promotions and brought on some new key team members. It’s been exciting to watch people grow, take on new roles, and push themselves to new heights.”
-Matt Taylor, Sr. VP of Paving
Keeley Paving has two regional offices outside of the St. Louis headquarters – one in Phoenix, AZ and one in New Braunfels, TX. These offices are flourishing and expanding our national reach to customers in the west and in the south. As the group continues to work towards a more regional organizational model, the team will be able to stretch even farther, serving customers in every corner of the nation. In 2022, the team also worked on one of their largest projects to date – an ADA program for a long-time, trusted customer and one of the largest big box retailers. This program was led by Brian Waeckerle and his team and is a program that touched everyone in the Paving Group in some way. The team completed over 170 projects within this program across the nation, strengthening their relationship with the customers and setting up opportunities for even more work in 2023.
“My vision for the Paving Group is to become the largest commercial paving contractor in the U.S. Customers will think of us when they think of their paving needs because they know the Paving Group truly lives by Larry Keeley’s words, ‘Quality, Safety, and Service never go out of style.’”
