Driveways to Highways

 

West Contracting got its start in 1956 in St Louis, Missouri. Norm and Mary West started the company and their timing was impeccable for St. Louis Asphalt Paving with the 1950’s and 1960’s housing boom. Driveways were the livelihood of the company at the beginning. By the 1960’s the company was expanding and started doing commercial parking lots for local general contractors and business owners.

By the Mid 70’s West Contracting expanded into the St Louis Road Construction market bidding in local municipalities, counties, and eventually working with MODOT.

With the Asphalt Paving St. Louis success Norm and Mary’s saw an opportunity further west where they were originally from. They opened an asphalt plant and office in Sullivan, MO in the mid 1970’s to efficiently and effectively pave in that market.

We now have 3 asphalt plants and install Asphalt from St. Louis to Rolla and often beyond! Franklin, Crawford, Warren, Gasconade, and Phelps counties are serviced out of our Sullivan Office. Jefferson, & St. Louis Counties out of our St. Louis Office.

Our specializations have also expanded over the years to include, Asphalt Paving, Asphalt Maintenance, Chip Seal Asphalt, Asphalt Milling (asphalt removal), and Ultra Thin Asphalt (NovaChip).

We have also become more diversified and competitive by opening up a Concrete Division that specializes not only in concrete but also excavation, box culverts, underground sewer installation, and Bridge Work.

 

Now nearly 60 years later West Contracting works on anything from large scale driveways to miles of MODOT Interstate.
