Incoming Pavement Advisory Board Member Dave Worthington, Worthington Paving, Visalia, CA, is a regular attendee at NPE West and this year was no different. A second-generation owner of the 46-year-old paving company, Worthington generates 60% of work from paving, 20% from grading, and 20% from sealcoating; 20% of the company’s work is subcontracted from larger area companies.
“Ours is a hands-on business,” Worthington says. “I’m right there on every job with the guys and I can see what’s going on, so I know it’s going to be done right. “I always tell them ‘Let’s take a little more time and do it right the first time. Go-backs cost money.’
“And I enjoy the work,” he says. “If you don’t enjoy the work, get out of the business.”
