What Makes Us Different

At J&W Asphalt, we are a family-run business that has been leading the asphalt industry in Minnesota since 1976. We were founded by a paving foreman and grading foreman. Our name stands for “Johnson & Workers” because our employees are central to our core values. We believe in innovation, integrity, quality, expertise, and building strong relationships.

We are an established company with a strong reputation and a commitment to providing customer-focused asphalt construction. If you’re looking for an organization that values quality workmanship and treats its employees with respect, look no further.

J&W Asphalt is a company that put our employees at the front and center of what we do. We understand that this begins by giving our employees a voice. As a J&W employee, you will participate in weekly meetings to help solve problems as part of a team. Our crews get together to share company goals and ideas, building a culture of community and teamwork.

This worker-focused approach helps us to stay strong as a team and maintain a positive, proactive culture.

At J&W Asphalt, we believe in showing our employees appreciation through employee events and team building exercises. We believe in a work hard, play hard ethic, and we love to take our employees out for fun, whether it’s paintballing or go-karting.

We also have an annual Christmas Party where we personally thank each employee, hand out Christmas Bonuses, and give away prizes. We believe that showing our employees they are valued keeps them happy and productive.

At J&W Asphalt, we offer competitive compensation and opportunities for career growth. As a family-owned company, we understand the importance of striking a healthy work-life balance. We want our employees to be happy so they will stay with us for many years and enjoy long, fulfilling careers with us. We offer a positive culture where everyone knows your name.

As leaders in the asphalt industry in Minnesota, our compaction procedures meet and exceed the Minnesota Asphalt Paving Association (MAPA) and National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) standards.

We have paved more driveways than anyone else in the Twin Cities. To remain at the top of our game, we stay current so that we can continue to be innovators within our field.

Here are a few of the ways we set ourselves apart:

  • Consult engineering firms
  • Read industry literature
  • Attend paving conferences and seminars
  • Perform on-the-job experimentation and test our results
  • Ensure the highest possible standard

We understand that workers’ safety is integral to our success and to any successful project. We place OSHA standards at the forefront of all we do. We make sure all of our workers are wearing the proper protective gear and are trained in safe construction practices.

One of the ways we accomplish that goal is by conducting regular safety meetings. We also follow a strict self-regulatory process to ensure compliance and maintain a clean work environment our employees can be proud of.
