History, Ownership, Employees
During 1987 Bourgeois & Shaw Inc., a site development company and a Garrity Family Corporation, purchased its' first reclaimer with the intention of expanding and diversifying into a new business arena- pavement reclamation. Bourgeois & Shaw Inc. operated this new venture as Bourgeois & Shaw Inc. dba Garrity Asphalt Reclaiming. It functioned as an open shop company.
By 1991 this newly developing business had expanded throughout the Northeast gaining a significant market share in the pavement reclamation business. During the 1992 season, Garrity Asphalt Reclaiming purchased its' first cold planer seeing an opportunity to expand into another market: pavement milling.
As the business continued to develop and grow, it was decided during 1995 that Garrity Asphalt Reclaiming, Inc. would become a union company to further grow and compete in union dominated markets.
Now in its twenty fifth year, Garrity Asphalt Reclaiming Inc. has approximately sixty employees and utilizes a wide array of equipment to support its pavement reclamation, cold planing, fine grading & rolling, calcium chloride and snow plowing operations. It is the largest company of its type serving the New England and New York markets.
