In spring 2008, when the housing decline stagnated the construction industry, one contractor saw his glass as half full. Ty Trulove saw an opportunity to expand his excavating business and move into asphalt paving.
Trulove Excavating is a successful site prep and earthmoving company in the Aspen / Glenwood Springs, Colo., area. Trulove has enjoyed steady work over the years; however, the company began to experience a considerable slowdown in work. In March 2008, Ty Trulove made the decision to venture into asphalt paving to offset the loss of excavation and site prep project work.
