25 Year Anniversary for Employee Mark Appling
Milestones are meant to be celebrated. We at Total Asphalt are proud to celebrate one of our employees who has reached a major milestone: 25 years of working with our amazing team. Mark Appling, one of our leading pavers, just marked a quarter century with Total Asphalt! We greatly appreciate Mark’s dedication, loyalty, and commitment to our company.
Mark joined Total Asphalt when he moved to Yale, MI. Before his move, Mark worked as a chef. He needed a change, and with only a year’s worth of paving experience under his belt, he applied to join the Total Asphalt team. Despite his limited experience, when he showed up for his interview on one of our job sites, we knew he’d be a perfect fit. In fact, we hired him on the spot! Ever since, he has become a strong part of the team, bringing an unparalleled work ethic and dedication to his work that we and our customers have come to count on.
When asked why he has stuck around for all these years, Mark said that he feels like family with us at Total Asphalt. He loves the creative aspect of paving (and scuba diving when he’s not our on the jobsite), and he’s glad to work with our fantastic clients.
We are so proud of Mark and all he’s accomplished. We are honored to have him on our team and look forward to the years to come!
