Valley Blacktop paves the way

Valley Blacktop operates under a few names in different communities, but the fantastic job and values of the company remain the same.

Over recent years, Valley Blacktop expanded beyond its main areas in Revelstoke and Sicamous, operating concrete divisions in Golden as Golden Concrete, Skandia Concrete in Invermere, and H&J Ready Mix in Revelstoke.

The company was established in the mid 1980s, and was operated out of the Sicamous and Revelstoke area, where the main office is now. Valley Blacktop and its subsidiaries work in a large area from Chase to Canal Flats, and all the way to the Alberta border, building roads, driveways, paths, and more.

With asphalt plants in Salmon Arm, Revelstoke, Golden and Invermere, Valley Blacktop operates 13 gravel pits throughout the area as well, and employs approximately 70 people during peak seasons.

With so many employees across the Valley and beyond, Valley Blacktop likes to give back to its communities.

In Golden, the company has donated concrete to the Alexander Park Elementary School playground upgrades, and asphalt to the Golden Fire Department for their training grounds upgrades. Every holiday season, Valley Blacktop donates to local food banks in Sicamous, Revelstoke, Golden, and Invermere. Annually in Invermere, Valley Blacktop hosts a golf tournament that has raised more than $50,000 for less fortunate families in the Columbia Valley.

“We like to give back to the communities we work in as we support many sports teams, scholarship bursaries, etc.,” said estimator and project manager Jordan La Roy. Valley Black Top completed the paving at the Donald Scale to Forde Station Road project, and has completed Town of Golden paving program for the past four seasons, and worked on the brewery frontage improvements and Ninth Avenue S. upgrades.

“Valley Blacktop and Golden Concrete will be working hard to be involved in the final phase of the Kicking Horse Canyon Project with ready mix, asphalt, and aggregates supply,” La Roy said.

No matter the job, big or small, Valley Blacktop is the place to call for ready mix, asphalt, and aggregate supply work.

“Valley Blacktop has experienced crews, equipment, and resources to take care of all your paving and concrete needs,” La Roy said.
