MEET OUR TEAM AT JCL ASPHALT
Attracting and retaining talented staff is a major area of focus for us. Over the past few years we’ve assembled a team of individuals who share our standards of professionalism and attention to detail. We deploy expert teams for each stage of your project – from construction crews who undertake preparation and finishing, through to specialised paving, hand lay and chip seal teams, depending on the exact specifications of your project. Regardless of role, they all have one thing in common – a focus on outstanding service, quality and safety.
Our team are profiled below:
JAMES CRAW – Managing Director
Over the past 18 years, driven by his personal vision for outstanding quality and workmanship, James has progressed from a hands-on role in a road paving crew to establish his own award-winning business.
After four years in a field-based position for Fulton Hogan, James was appointed as Asphalt Foreman in charge of a road paving crew. Twelve months later, in 2004, he started his own surfacing company.
Since then, James has managed and delivered construction and surfacing projects throughout Canterbury and the South Island. His extensive practical knowledge, leadership and managerial acumen have seen JCL Asphalt grow exponentially, but not at the expense of quality and customer experience. The success of JCL Asphalt has been led by James’ attention to detail and single-minded focus on outstanding safety, quality and service.
