About Us

Des Moines Asphalt and Paving is a progressive leader in the asphalt and highway construction industry in central Iowa. Our continuous pursuit of new technology and quality work are backed by multiple industry and community awards. Our 100+ employees are well-trained, well-respected, and take pride in doing the job right.

We began business in the late 1960s as part of Ronald Kenyon Construction Company, which later became Iowa Road Builders. The company sold to Robert Horner in the early 1980s and continued to grow throughout the 80s and 90s. In 2001, Des Moines Asphalt and Paving became part of Oldcastle Materials, Inc., a division of CRH, located in Dublin, Ireland. Oldcastle Materials is the leading vertically integrated supplier of aggregates, asphalt, ready mixed concrete, and paving services in the United States. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Oldcastle Materials employs 17,500 employees at more than 1,200 locations in 44 states.

OMG Midwest, a region of Oldcastle Materials, is comprised of ten different construction material suppliers throughout Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Illinois. As an operating company of Oldcastle Materials, Des Moines Asphalt and Paving maintains a local identity, which allows us to gain market position while also utilizing the technology, best practices, talent pool, purchasing power, and financial resources of a large organization. Because of this vertical integration, a project can be completed from start to finish by working together with our sister companies, Hallett Materials, Cessford Construction, APAC, Tri-State Paving, Southern Minnesota Construction, Mallard Sand & Gravel, OMNI Engineering, and New Ulm Quartzite Quarries.
