Double D believes in partnerships!
A great example of why we believe in partnerships. When Mark Droubay began hauling asphalt and bidding asphalt and emulsion jobs he often was bidding jobs that were too big for himself to cover. At the same time Rod Thurston was starting a small asphalt trucking company too and was in the same situation. Mark and Rod decided to help each other out, they would both bid the same jobs and would cover as much as they could by themselves but would have the other fill in when needed. For many years Mark and Rod bid jobs this way, they never wanted their customers to be worried about getting their oil supply. They helped each other so that they could better serve their customer.
Founding the Utah Asphalt Paving Association
This attitude of partnership and working together has been a staple of Mark’s career. In 2010 Mark was frustrated by the lack of unity among asphalt companies in the state of Utah. This led him to draft an email to those in the asphalt and trucking industry that he had formed partnerships with and asked them to all come together in a unified effort to be partners in founding an association with the purpose of unifying the asphalt industry. That email led to a small meeting in a conference room and now that has grown to a fully built up association with 100’s of partners and 1,000’s of attendees who have benefited from gathering together in a unified voice.
