Asphalt Paving & Maintenance Co., Inc. was established in 1979 by John Scott, who had held a position with the South Carolina Department of Transportation as an asphalt inspector designing asphalt mixes in the Research and Materials laboratory. Later, John was promoted to a Regional Asphalt Engineer with SCDOT, responsible for the inspection of asphalt that was produced by private contractors for building South Carolina highways.

In 1979, John left SCDOT to start his own company, Asphalt Paving & Maintenance Co., Inc. The company's humble beginnings included a small grader, 2 dump trucks, a roller, a paver, and 2 key people. From that beginning, the company soon became one of the largest independent family-owned paving contractors in the Columbia, SC area. In 1984, the company purchased its own asphalt plant and began selling asphalt to other paving contractors, in addition to supplying asphalt for its own customers' needs.


Today, Asphalt Paving & Maintenance Co., Inc. is managed and operated by John, his wife, and their sons. With its experienced and professional crew, the company is one of the most respected paving and paving maintenance contractors in the South Carolina Midlands, welcoming the opportunity to provide its customers with superior service for all their paving needs.
