About Us

Our People

Over the course of three decades, T&K Asphalt has enjoyed great success growing from a two-man sealcoating company into the largest parking lot maintenance company in New England.

There are many reasons for this success, but our founder Kevin Gosnell would often say it was because of our employees. Kevin loved his employees and would often describe them as “the most critical asset of our organization.”

Today, T&K employs over 125 people, many of them year-round – a rare occurrence in a seasonal business like ours.  What makes us most proud is the longevity of their employment.  Many have been with us for at least 10 years, some for more than 20.

Many companies look at different metrics to evaluate their business performance, but here at T&K, we take great pride in our employee retention rate.  We have been recognized as having the best retention rate in the industry – and that means a lot to us.

We’ve understood for a long time the value of having happy, engaged long-term employees who show up on time, do their job, and take pride in their work.  We think it’s important for employees to see their job as a career – not a stop-over until they find a better job.

How do we achieve this? 

Well, it didn’t happen by chance. As a company,T&K Asphalt has been pro-active in implementing a wide range of employee-centered programs and benefits such as:

  • In-house safety and training programs
  • In-house self-improvement education
  • Employee-appreciation events
  • Family cookouts and parties
  • Thankful Thursday events
  • Free T&K apparel
  • Comprehensive benefits including health, dental, vision and a 401(k) plan
