PAVEMENT 2013 Top 100 Contractor Ranking Survey

Welcome to Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction’s survey of paving & pavement maintenance contractors. Our hope with this survey is to develop verifiable Top Contractor listings in each of four industry segments: Paving, Sealcoating, Striping and Sweeping. To do that we need to know:

  • Gross Sales Volume for your fiscal year 2012 (regardless of the date that fiscal year ended)
  • A breakdown by percentage of the type of work that generated those 2012 sales
  • Third-party verification of that sales total (see additional explanation at the end of the survey)

To determine whether a company qualifies for one (or more) of our four lists we will multiply your total 2012 sales dollars by the percentage of work done in each industry segment. For example, if a contractor reports $1 million in 2012 sales and generated 30% of those sales from pavement marking, the number used to determine qualification for the Striping Top Contractor List would be $300,000 ($1 million x 30%).

Note: No sales figures will be reported or published; sales figures will be used only internally for determining each list. Also, no contractor will be eligible for the list without third party verification of your FY 2012 Gross Sales Volume.
