About Michigan Paving

Michigan Paving operates six asphalt plants and, with our partner companies, we operate nine aggregate and materials locations, including one of the largest liquid asphalt terminals in Michigan.

Michigan Paving Crew on I-69 Project

One of Michigan's Largest Asphalt Suppliers

Since we control the source and quality of the aggregates and liquid asphalt cement, we meet or exceed all specifications for every job — no matter how tight the schedule.

With the capability of producing more than 600 tons of asphalt per hour at each of our plants and access to more than 10 fully-equipped paving crews, we can efficiently handle any size paving project.

Each facility can also arrange for other products needed in the paving process such as stone base, tack coat and delivery to your job.

Talk with a Michigan Paving expert today to find out how the latest technological developments can improve the quality of your next project and reduce the carbon footprint your company or municipality leaves on the surrounding community.

  • 2003 July: One of the Limestone quarries from the SEJ acquisition was traded for the Denniston quarry.


  • 1991: The Monroe Oil Terminal was opened with two AC tanks. Over the next few years, the facility grew to include seven HMA tanks, a rail spur to unload 24 cars at a time, access to the Raisin River to unload barges, and construction of an emulsion facility.
  • 1993: TM Quarry opened at the Newport site
  • 1995 & 1996: Additional portable gravel operations were started (do we have the locations??)
  • 1999: Sold for $422 million, which Bob and Ellen Thompson shared with the 550 workers and saving towards future investments. The company was later renamed Michigan Paving and Materials.
