DGS ASTRO PAVING | ABOUT OUR COMPANY
DGS Astro Paving was created in 1994 through the amalgamation of DGS Engineering of Fort St. John and Astro Paving of Dawson Creek. Initially setup in Dawson Creek, DGS Astro paving is now installed in a state-of-the-art facility in the energetic and fast-growing city of Fort St.John.
DGS Astro Paving is a part of the Colas Group, the worldwide leader in transportation infrastructure, construction and maintenance.
Fort St. John is located in the heart of majestic Peace River country, and is the largest regional service center in northeastern BC, servicing 64,000 people in outlying areas. Since its beginning in 1794 as a trading post, Fort St. John has grown with opportunities like the completion of the Alaska Highway in 1942 that sparked a population boom and the discovery of high-grade oil in 1951 that set the city’s course as British Columbia’s oil and gas capital. The most important centre for enterprise in the northeast region of British Columbia, Fort St. John’s key industries are oil and gas, agriculture and forestry.
DGS Astro Paving connects the North East by supplying construction materials and services for the region’s infrastructure. Our services and products such as aggregates, asphalt concrete, underground, street and highway construction are essential for sustained economic and cultural development throughout the region. With a seasonal workforce of over 110 people, and an extensive fleet of equipment such as trucks, graders, pavers and compactors, DGS Astro Paving has successfully completed over 105 jobs each year. With facilities located in Chetwynd, Fort St. John, Taylor, Dawson Creek and Fort Nelson, including hot mix asphalt production plants, gravel pits, shops and offices, DGS Astro Paving is proud to be the local construction services supplier of reference in northeastern British Columbia.
