Member Spotlight: Southern Asphalt
Southern Asphalt is headquartered in Conway, SC with plant locations in Conway and Marion, SC. The company covers Horry, Georgetown, Williamsburg, Marion, Dillon, and Florence Counties.
Southern Asphalt was founded by Donald D. Godwin in 1994. Mr. Godwin is a veteran of the construction industry after working for his father, Mack Godwin with Godwin Construction. The company began as a small, family-run paving company but has evolved into a fully integrated site development and construction company.
In the years following Southern Asphalt’s founding, the company weathered many periods of economic ups and downs, and through it all, Southern Asphalt continued to grow, building upon sound business principles and human relationships.
In 2002 Nick Godwin, Donald’s son, joined the company and has since taken a major role in every aspect of operations. As a result, today the company is anchored firmly on solid foundations and is positioned for continued growth into the future.
One thing that makes Southern Asphalt unique is the fact that it is a total site-oriented contractor able to start a project at the beginning of clearing and complete the project through final asphalt paving.
Two projects of significance completed by Southern Asphalt were: 1) the Interchange at US 17 Bypass & SC 707 Farrow Parkway and 2) Highway 544 Widening.
