The business continues to grow at an accelerated pace. Dan and Bruce acquire a 10-acre parcel in Highwood Industrial Park in Pontiac, Michigan, and build “ASI World Headquarters”, an office complex large enough to accommodate an ever-increasing staff. The facility includes a four-bay shop, industrial garage for 24-hour preventative maintenance and repair for their growing arsenal of paving and earth moving equipment, and a fleet of big rigs and trailers.
ASI now consists of three full-time paving crews and is grossing $15 million a year. The company has large needs for transportation, and the brothers start a new business, Lou's Transport Inc., designed to haul hot asphalt and broken asphalt to and from ASI job sites.
