PLM and RME Become Elite Surface InfrastructureElite Surface Infrastructure
The Big News
PLM Asphalt & Concrete and Rocky Mountain Excavating (RME) have merged to become Elite Surface Infrastructure (ESI). This directly benefits customers in private, commercial and federal sectors who can now access a greater breadth of resources and capabilities. Both companies have offered comprehensive civil construction services for over 20 years. Today ESI is the largest Colorado company that self-performs Civil Construction and Asphalt & Concrete Maintenance for Commercial, Municipal and Government projects.
This merger results in an optimal combination of RME’s Asphalt, Concrete, Earthwork and Utilities departments with PLM’s Concrete, Asphalt and Maintenance departments. These are now housed under two comprehensive Construction and Maintenance departments. The Construction Department provides:
- underground utility and pipe installation
- asphalt paving and grading
- site and structural concrete
- general contracting services
The Maintenance Department offers various maintenance-related services, including:
- infrastructure repair
- infrared patching
- asphalt crack sealing
- seal coating
- removal and replacement (R&R)
- paving and striping
- snow removal services for commercial and industrial properties
The combined team offers the talent, expertise and resources, which makes ESI distinctively nimble and flexible. Ryan Johnson, Business Development Manager at ESI and 20-year RME veteran, says: “Clients are especially impressed with our broad utilities services – no other company in Colorado can provide this level of service.” Every project is backed by a management and estimating team with 140 years of combined experience. The company also boasts 300 skilled field employees and its own fleet of advanced heavy equipment. This uniquely positions ESI to meet budgetary requirements and project deadlines on or ahead of schedule. Furthermore, ESI can lean on longstanding relationships with local rental companies and contractors to fulfill additional equipment and personnel requirements when needed.
RME and PLM create a natural mix together as ESI. Johnson continues, “Over the years, we’ve leveraged expertise on the PLM side to increase efficiency and improve quality on several projects. We are long-time friends and have always shared the same values of honest, affordable and quality work.”
Although PLM and RME now operate as one company, customers can rely on the same working relationships they had in the past – working with the same people and depending on the same quality of work.
ESI is headquartered in Castle Rock, Colorado, a central location to clients throughout Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, South Dakota, North Dakota and Nebraska.
