Work with the people who paved the way

Build better roads with the industry leaders in innovative, quality asphalt products and exceptional service.

Over 80 years and million of miles

In our time, we’ve covered a lot of ground, paving some 12.7 million miles of asphalt roadway all across North America. We’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about asphalt. How to improve it, make it last longer, perform better, in all manner of conditions. It’s the road we’ve been on from the beginning and we will stay on it now and into the future.

 

Paving the way

Glenn E. Nielson started this business with a single leased oilfiled and the reopening of the shuttered Park Refinery in Cody, Wyoming in 1938. By 1952 Nielson had built the Husky Oil Company, with production in seven states and Canada, and refineries producing gasoline and the versatile paving material, asphalt. To this day, Mr. Nielson’s relentless drive and innovative thinking sets the tone for how we approach every aspect of asphalt research, production and delivery.

From the ground up

Every paving project presents its challenges, but Husky Asphalt's holistic approach ensures we always overcome them. It starts with sourcing top-grade heavy crude oil that produces the softest straight-run grade of asphalt in North America. This is processed at our specialized refining facilities into different asphalt products, some with additives to enhance and modify their performance characteristics. We follow through with on-time delivery via our efficient transportation network. It all adds up to pavement that stands the test of time.

Asphalt first

Husky’s commitment to quality asphalt production ensures a steady and reliable supply to every project. "Asphalt First" is a unique driver for Husky, starting with our crude molecules, through our refineries, into our terminals, through QA testing at our labs, and ultimately to the job site via our efficient transportation network.
