Cottle’s Asphalt Sealing (as it was called then) initially began in 1981 as a part-time business venture with a pickup truck and a small seal coating unit. After a few years of operating part-time while also working at his full-time building construction job Sam decided to leave his full-time job to pursue his business venture. He purchased a paver, roller and a larger seal coating unit and became Cottle’s Asphalt Maintenance. Then in 1989 Sam was offered a Branch Manager/Estimator position with a large construction company. He spent 13 years estimating and managing projects in three states in that position. Then in 1999 Sam’s son Mike expressed an interest in the seal coating business and Cottle’s Asphalt Maintenance, Inc. (as it is known today) began with a few small pieces of equipment and three part-time employees. In 2000 Sam left his full time job to join the family business. We started out with the intention of doing small pavement repairs and seal coating.
Within the first few years we received so many requests for paving work that we decided to expand by offering full paving services as well. From there we began the process to become PENN DOT pre-qualified and in 2005 we achieved that status and began to expand into state paving and bridge construction work. In the last 19 years, despite difficult economic times, CAM Inc. has grown to an employee base of 70+ with a dramatic increase in sales as well.
Today in addition to private and commercial paving, we also offer site preparation and excavating, roadway milling, tar & chip, and bridge rehabilitation and construction. Today Cottle’s is not only a paving contractor but an industry leader in the Bridge and heavy construction markets. Our size allows the customers of our projects to still have that one on one with Sam or Mike along with the ability and resources to complete the “BIG JOB” No job is too small. Even the smallest of projects receive the same attention to detail as our largest project.
Cottle’s Asphalt Maintenance Inc. is a family owned business with Mike Cottle serving as President, Sam Cottle , CEO and Renee Cottle, Secretary/Treasurer.
Our primary goal is and always has been to treat our customers the way we expect to be treated and to provide high quality work at a fair price.
