PLM Asphalt & Concrete and Rocky Mountain Excavating Merge

Concrete and excavating companies merge to form a powerhouse called Elite Surface Infrastructure.

PLM Asphalt & Concrete LLC and Rocky Mountain Excavating (RME) have merged to become Elite Surface Infrastructure (ESI). This transaction directly benefits existing customers in private, commercial and federal sectors. They can now access a greater breadth of resources and capabilities.

Both companies have offered comprehensive civil construction services for over 20 years. During that time, they serve their clients as trusted general contractors, construction managers, and members of the design/build team and subcontractors. Today ESI is the largest non-material producing company in Colorado that self-performs civil construction and asphalt and concrete maintenance for commercial, municipal and government projects.

Better Together

This merger provides an optimal combination of RME’s Asphalt, Concrete, and Earthwork and Utilities departments with PLM’s Concrete, Asphalt and Maintenance departments. These are now both housed under two comprehensive Construction and Maintenance departments.

The Construction Department provides underground utility and pipe installation; earthwork; asphalt paving and grading; site and structural concrete; and in addition, general contracting services.

The Maintenance Department provides various maintenance-related services. These services include  infrastructure repair, infrared patching, milling, asphalt crack sealing, seal coating, removal and replacement (R&R), paving and striping. They also offer snow removal services for commercial and industrial properties.

The combined team offers the talent, expertise and resources, which makes ESI distinctively both nimble and flexible. Ryan Johnson, the Business Development Manager at ESI and 20-year RME veteran, had a comment.  “Clients are especially impressed with our broad utilities services – no other company in Colorado can provide this level of service,” he says.

Every project is backed by both a management and estimating team with over a century of combined experience. The company also boasts 300 skilled field employees and its own fleet of advanced heavy equipment. This uniquely positions ESI to meet both budgetary requirements and project deadlines on or ahead of schedule. ESI can also lean on longstanding relationships with local rental companies and contractors to fulfill additional equipment and personnel requirements, as necessary.

Moving Forward

RME and PLM create a natural mix together as ESI. Johnson continues, “Over the years, we’ve leveraged expertise on the PLM side to both increase efficiency and improve quality on several projects. We are long-time friends and have always shared the same values of honest, affordable and quality work.”

As these concrete and excavating companies merge and become ESI, customers can rely on the same working relationships they had in the past. Customers will be working with the same people and can also depend on the same quality of work.

Castle Rock, Colorado serves as the headquarters for ESI. This is a central location for clients throughout Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, South Dakota, North Dakota and also Nebraska.
