The Bay Of Plenty Asphalt team are made up of a diverse group of people that are specialized in their fields. We pride ourselves on always ensuring the customers needs are met, and that the final result is what they had envisioned. 

Arthur & Sherrill Pratt started the company in 1973 after returning home from building roads in Papua New Guinea. Starting with only a wheelbarrow and a few hand tools, Arthur has built the company in to an almost house hold name in the bay of plenty. We complete work that ranges from a pot hole repair to multi million dollar car parks, there is no project we cannot help you with.

There are now 30 staff, with a range of 15+ heavy vehicles, rollers, excavators and all the other tools required. 

We pride ourselves on delivering a product that is of high quality. We strive to maintain excellent customer service and ensure minimal disruption to your property. 

But don't just take our word for it...

"Having BOP Asphalt lay my driveway was one of the best decisions I have made for my property. Not only does it look great but the cost of the service and quality of work was exemplary, not to mention the value it has added to my property. I will always appreciate the professionalism and care given to me throughout the process from consultation to labour. The team completed the work quickly and with great expertise. My job was carried out with minimal interruption and they left my property not only looking like million dollars but clean and tidy. Thank you BOP Asphalt for your outstanding professional service. I highly recommend this company and its great team to anyone looking for value, quality and expertise." S.Baker

"This is the third project BOP ASPHALT have done for me and once again the service and finish have been exceptional, in this industry time is money, I would happily recommend them." C. Stanaway
