Two of the most respected names in commercial pavement maintenance products and services have joined forces to create the region’s largest provider of asphalt, seal coating and concrete services.
McConnell & Associates, a leading manufacturer and provider of asphalt seal coating products and services since 1965, announced the acquisition of Midwest Asphalt Coatings’ Kansas City operations. The two companies will operate under the McConnell brand as assets are assumed and incorporated into existing operations.
Scott McConnell, McConnell & Associates president, said the merger of the two companies is a win-win for customers, employees and the industry. “We have always had tremendous respect for Midwest Asphalt Coatings, their people and their work,” said McConnell. “Now our two companies can operate as one stronger entity – adding greater value for our customers.”
McConnell & Associates pavement seal coat products have long been used by many parking lot sealing contractors. MAC was the first to introduce seal coating to Kansas City and now leads the industry with premium pavement products and services. Midwest Asphalt Coatings had used McConnell branded products, including MAC 52 and MAC Pro-Blend in their own asphalt pavement services throughout the area.
Joe Manzardo, Midwest Asphalt Coatings president, said the merger benefits Midwest Asphalt Coatings’ customers greatly. “Our customers will continue to be served by the same people using the same fine products that they have trusted for years,” said Manzardo. “McConnell & Associates people, products, knowledge and service are well-respected in the industry and the merger creates tremendous value for both companies including our employees, and most importantly our customers,” added Manzardo.
Previously based in Lee’s Summit, Midwest Asphalt Coatings opened in 1971 and had become known as a premier provider of pavement maintenance services including parking lot design, construction, maintenance, and safety compliance. Midwest Asphalt Coatings’ operations will consolidate within McConnell & Associates offices in North Kansas City, Missouri.
