H.J.R. Asphalt Partnership is truly that. A partnership. "Back in 1988, the late Harry Tarasoff along with his brother Jim and long-time friend, Reg Willick were working in the paving industry and saw an opportunity to provide a higher level of quality workmanship and customer service. Today, the province
of Saskatchewan, with its over 16,300 miles (26,250 km) of roads, the largest rural road network of any province in Canada, benefits from the innovation and quality that H.J.R. provides.
According to Jim Tarasoff, the annual season for paving success in Saskatchewan is fairly short. "We usually get going somewhere in early May and our highway work will usually end in early October. We maintain a plus 40 degree Fahrenheit (plus 5 Celsius) policy. We will not do any highway paving if the temperature drops below this minimum and in the spring and fall that could mean a lot of standing around waiting for the temperature to rise, resulting in some very short workdays."
