Gerken Paving, Inc., a family owned business, was founded by Julian Gerken in 1978 after being in the family excavating business for 30 years. 39 years and generations later, Gerken Paving has continued to expand. Starting with a handful of employees, it has grown into a workforce of 350. Julian still provides daily insight, but has handed over the day to day management to the next generation. The “Gerken” brand continues to stand for quality and integrity in the construction industry.
Safety is our top priority, especially where construction and traffic intersect. At Gerken, we employ a dedicated safety team and company-wide incentive program to ensure our team members are current with the industry’s best practices. We do this through a combination of field, in person and online training.
