James Craw believes the ‘’standard you set is the standard you walk past’’. He’s built JCL Asphalt on this principal – ensuring every project is completed as if it’s ‘’his own’’ and he is the end customer. As a result, he has built a team and a business focused on quality results, excellent customer service and an unrelenting focus on safety.

Over the past 12 years, we’ve asphalted thousands of kilometres of roads and constructed hundreds of tennis courts and private driveways. (We’ve even built a 17,000m2 private motor racing track). Along the way, we’ve won multiple awards and achieved ACC and Sitewise Green Accreditation’s. We believe if you’re going to do it, do it once and do it right.

All JCL Asphalt customers benefit from the expertise of our team and their commitment to ‘make it happen’ – no project is too big or too small. With our ‘can do’ attitude, we’ve become the surfacing specialists trusted by local government, commercial organisations and private clients, alike. We’ve also played a role in the rebuild of Christchurch – we’re proud of the numerous reconstruction and reinstatement projects we’ve delivered for SCIRT and Christchurch City Council assets.

We’ve grown significantly over the past few years – from a staff of 12 to a team of 65 operating out of two locations. However, we’ve never lost sight of James’ stringent standards for quality, service and safety.

Regardless of the sector or size of project we undertake, we focus on a finished product which exceeds client expectations and a process which delivers the best possible customer experience. The surfaces we lay look as good as they ‘ride’. We guarantee it.
