Committed to Excellence! Our company is committed to providing a positive atmosphere for promoting exceptional service to exceed customer expectations.
Asphalt Specialties Co. was founded 33 years ago in Lakeland, MN. President, Erik Peterson, worked installing asphalt during the summers while completing a degree in civil engineering at the University of Minnesota in the spring of 1978. Dave Swanson, Vice President, was one of the founding members of Asphalt Specialties Co.
The company originally provided residential asphalt installations only, in the 80′s we moved into the commercial installation market. It grew throughout the years by providing exceptional quality of product and service, developing a residential marketing system and adding concrete and retaining walls to the product mix. In August of 1994, the company moved to Shoreview, providing a central location in the Twin Cities market.
Currently, the company operates with approximately 20 installation personnel, involving 2 excavation crews, paving crew, patch and repair crew, seal crew, and concrete crew. The company owns and maintains all the construction equipment and vehicles for its operations.
