Dustin, Mark and Brian Poe
Poe Asphalt was founded in 1953. The company, under the direction of Ernie Poe, operated by the name of Asphalt Paving Company until 1962, at which time Ernie’s son Don took over the company. As Poe Asphalt Paving, Inc., the company laid 4,500 tons of hot mix that year, with five employees, a small batch plant and two end dumps.
In 1963 the company purchased its first portable plant and expanded their market base. The company continued with steady growth through the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.
In 1992, Don’s son, Mark was named President and CEO for the company. In 1999 Poe Asphalt began serving the Coeur d’Alene/Spokane market, joining other base plants that serve the Lewiston /Clarkston, Moscow/Pullman, and Grangeville communities.
Mark has two sons, Dustin and Brian, who started working for the company at a very young age. Growing up they worked in all faucets of the company to learn a full perspective of the business. Brian has always been geared towards the administration side of the business, and currently runs the Post Falls Division as well as manages the quality control for the asphalt production. Dustin has always been more field driven and enjoys the rewards of building the work. He is currently the general superintendent for the Post Falls Division. Together, they put out award winning asphalt while encompassing the vision that Ernie had for the company.
Generations of Asphalt
Proudly serving the Inland Northwest since 1953.
Nearly 70 Years of quality paving
Poe Asphalt was established in 1953 in the Lewis Clark Valley. The foundation of our company was built on integrity and trust. The belief early on was that we could accomplish whatever we set our sights on as long as we hired and retained highly skilled people and treated them with a deep level of respect. We believe that every human being has tremendous value and it is our responsibility to model this in our daily interactions. Our goal is to openly communicate with the guiding principles of Grace and Truth with our employees, customers, vendors, and subcontractors.
We also believe in supporting the communities we serve. A great deal of our lives are shaped by those communities as we work, play, volunteer, and develop lifelong relationships. We invest in a variety of non-profit organizations who serve those who are in great need. So often, people just need a second chance, someone to embrace them, and help them find their way. Life is short and we believe in making a difference while we’re here.
