Granite also maintains a robust FOB asphalt sales program that allows them to support their local paving placement partners.
In addition to growing their capabilities, Granite has grown its market footprint over the years as well. Through several strategic acquisitions, they are now able to serve York, Chester, Union and Lancaster Counties from their McConnells Plant and Marion, Dillon and Florence Counties from their Latta Plant. They are also erecting another asphalt plant in Concord, NC to enhance their ability to better serve the northeastern quadrant of the Charlotte metro area.
Granite Contracting, LLC has built their company on two different, yet complementary ideals. The first commitment is to provide a safe, environmentally responsible, worksite for their employees, customers, and community. Their other commitment is to provide their customers with the highest level of construction expertise, superior quality, and unsurpassed service. They have assembled a strong team of project managers, each with a Civil Engineering background and years of field experience. One person prepares the cost estimate, coordinates construction, and handles contract administration for each project. This allows Granite Contracting, LLC to provide each client the highest level of customer service and satisfaction. This same level of expertise and focus on customer service carries through to their field operations. On every job, they place a team of highly trained, safety conscious, and experienced construction veterans.
