History

In 1947, after graduating from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, William E. Herzog “Bill” Herzog moved to St. Joseph, MO and secured a position at the Missouri Department of Transportation. A few years later, Bill took this regional transportation experience with him to work at a local construction company.

In the 22 years he spent there, he advanced his career and became the general manager for the asphalt division. Eventually, Bill’s drive and entrepreneurial spirit compelled him to make the next logical move – to start his own asphalt paving company. In 1969, Bill founded Herzog Contracting Corp.
