“It is fantastic to be recognized in this way,” said Richard Piendak, founder and owner of Richards Paving, “For over forty years, our goal has been to offer our commercial and residential customers a great product with fantastic service. This award acknowledges that all of our employees have done just that.”

In addition, the magazine also acknowledged Richards Paving as the only company on the list that “generates a meaningful percentage of sales (23%) from (hot mix asphalt) sales.” Owning its own hot mix asphalt plant ensures that Richards Paving continually has an adequate supply of top-quality hot mix asphalt for both commercial and residential use.

“Our ability to supply our own hot mix asphalt makes us unique within Delaware,” continued Piendak, “it allows us to service commercial and residential customers from beginning-to-end in the paving process. In fact, many other pavers in Delaware buy their hot mix asphalt from us.”

Richards Paving has extensive Delaware operations with its plant located on Bowers Street in Wilmington and its head office in New Castle.
