Equipment

How many tires does it take to rollout our paving operations every day?

This is more of a fun fact and less of a riddle!

The Logistics Of K&L Industries

K&L Industries owns and operates:

  • a fleet of six trucks that rollout every morning, plus four additional trailers
  • two trucks for our lighter equipment, which equals twenty-two tires in all
  • four additional dump trucks on top of the three we own.

That comes to a grand total of 120 K&L tires on Portland’s roads each day — and this number doesn’t include our traveling salesforce!

We are proud of our growth over the past thirty years and to be Portland’s paving contractor of choice.

More Fun Facts

  • Our team transports about 700 gallons of fuel every morning.
  • We complete an average of 13-14 paving jobs each week.
  • We utilize a total of 7 dump trucks per day.
  • About ⅓ of our paving jobs will see all three of our crews throughout the project.

Our Quick and Painless Process

We know your time is valuable and that construction projects aren’t always convenient. When our team paves your property, we work together seamlessly and quickly, ensuring top-notch service with minimal disruptions.

We prep the site the day before for residential projects, which takes about one to two hours, then complete the project the following day in under two hours!

Commercial and industrial projects take a little longer — but we stand by our guarantee to get in and out quickly, leaving behind only a superior-quality paving solution that will last for years to come.
