Name of Company: Louisville Paving and Construction Company
Company Formed: 1949
Company’s Success: We have experienced, capable people that give attention to detail with the end result being satisfied customers that continue to patronize Louisville Paving and Construction Company for their development and paving projects year in and year out.
Joined ABC: Charter member since 1973
Largest Benefit of Being an ABC Member: Membership in the ABC connects us in a very real way to our industry (competitors, customers, subs, suppliers). In addition, all members benefit from the ABC’s efforts to promote/protect the industry through its legislative efforts, training opportunities and social activities. We are a member in the ABC because of benefits received and out of patronage (nod to Jesse Flynn) to the merit shop values we believe in so strongly. I might further point out that I do not believe that membership in the ABC has ever been more essential. Merit shop ideals are under attack from numerous fronts. We must all support organizations like the ABC that promote and protect our values as business men and women.
