North America Business Awards 2022 | 15 Nov22138 Best Family-Owned Paving Contractor – Missouri Family-owned company, Advanced Asphalt Paving & Concrete LLC, ensures the safety and aesthetic appeal of paving and road surfaces in the Greater Kansas City Metro area. Boasting over 200 years of combined experience in the industry, the company has built a reputation for its expert workmanship and outstanding customer service. We speak with owner, Danny Calvert, to find out more. ull-service asphalt maintenance company, Advanced Asphalt Paving & Concrete LLC, installs, protects, repairs, and replaces all kinds of asphalt surfaces. As well as asphalt, Advanced also takes care of concrete work such as installing and repairing sidewalks and curbs. The company, which began trading in 2011, strives to provide every customer with quality work at affordable prices. Roadways, parking lots and driveways are all inspected with meticulous detail by Advanced’s estimating team. Each project is evaluated to identify the best solution possible for the customer. Communication is high on the agenda with customers kept in the loop through every stage of the process. Danny tells us, “Asphalt paving is a complex procedure. We make sure we stay up to date with the newest technology. By keeping up with the evolving industry, we’re able to provide our customers with the best quality service. Like everything else, asphalt prices have gone up. We can’t control inflation but we can make sure we always offer our customers the lowest competitive price in our region.” Danny runs the family business with his two sons Danny Calvert Jr. and Michael Calvert by his side. Together they have grown the business into the successful operation that it is today. Danny tells us a little about business day-to-day, “We take care of our employees as if they are our own family. Our crew works together as one to complete any task at hand. Our customers take ease knowing that our crew is background checked and OSHA certified. Each workday takes us somewhere new. That keeps things exciting and helps boost the team’s morale. They’d rather be out in the action than in a cubical.” But asphalting is a seasonal affair. It’s not possible in the winter months. So when there’s no client work, the team uses its time to make preparations for the upcoming season. We ask Danny how Advanced stands out from its competition. He explains, “We’re always communicating with our customers and subcontractors. This ensures we deliver every job on time. We don’t just tell our customers what needs to be done. We take the time to explain how we’ll make their surfaces beautiful and structurally sound.” So far in 2022, Advanced has served the local community by completing several roads for surrounding cities. The company, which also holds an A+ accreditation from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), has provided new parking lots for churches and apartment complexes, with the majority of its jobs coming via Google or Microsoft searches, referrals, and website submissions. Danny says, “We’re proud to have completed these jobs before the harsh winter weather begins. Our gross sales increase each season, all while maintaining the lowest competitive prices in our region. Each year we complete more jobs and expand our knowledge further. This keeps our team excited to see what’s coming next.” Contact: Danny Calvert Company: Advanced Asphalt Paving & Concrete LLC Web Address: F
