U.S. Pavement Services Expands Operations to the Carolinas

by Katie Lee

Woburn, Mass., and Charlotte, N.C. — Massachusetts-based U.S. Pavement Services, Inc. has expanded its paving and pavement maintenance operations to the Carolinas. Original 800-PAVEMENT network member Rick Adkison and his long-time staff and crews will now operate as U.S. Pavement Services based in Charlotte, N.C. Adkison will serve as general manager of the newly created division, overseeing all operations in the region.

Adkison’s successful track record as a pavement professional and recognized industry leadership in the area allows U.S. Pavement Services to gain an established foothold in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. His addition to the U.S. Pavement Services family is a natural fit for CEO Mike Musto. “I’ve known Rick for over 12 years and from Day 1 he has shown a genuine passion for this industry. He’s converted that passion into a thriving business in a competitive region which is why he fits perfectly with our company.”

Previously as owner/founder of Sure Shot Sealing and Striping, Inc., Rick Adkison relentlessly marketed and built his business using the 1-800-SEALCOAT vanity number. He developed his company from a single sealcoat crew in 2000 to the full-service pavement operation it has become today.

COO Andrew Musto adds: “Beyond being a friend, Rick has truly become an extension of our operation in the Carolinas over the years. His experience with both property managers and national retailers positions us to serve that market at unparalleled levels. I’m proud to have a person like Rick on our team and look forward to showing the customers of the Carolinas how we can provide value.”

Started in 1985, U.S. Pavement Services did nearly $50 million in sales in 2015, up from $36 million in 2014. The full-service paving and pavement maintenance contractor completed over 3,500 parking lot jobs and more than 2,000 residential driveways in 2015. Much of the parking lot work was from national accounts through the 1-800-PAVEMENT network, which the contractor founded and manages. Nearly 200 members strong, the network consists of nationwide 800 vanity numbers, which include 1-800-ASPHALT, 1-800-SEALCOAT, 1-800-BLACKTOP, 1-800-STRIPING, 1-800-DRIVEWAY and 1-888-PAVEMENT.
