Feed My Starving Children

Turns out… you can have TONS of fun. The A&A Paving team had a wonderful day volunteering at a Feed My Starving Children Packing event, hand-packing rice, soy, dried vegetables and nutritious vitamins in packets that are distributed to the neediest children around the world. Working with several other volunteer groups during our session, FMSC made it possible for us to prepare more than 30,000 meals! Throughout our volunteer shift we had a fun, upbeat and energizing experience – while getting the chance to impact hundreds of people in only two hours. Learn more about how YOU can volunteer for such…

The A&A Paving team worked hard to prepare and present an informative and show-stopping booth at the recent BOMA/Suburban Chicago Expo.

So much excitement was generated, the A&A Paving team won the People’s Choice Award for the 2017 show!

Todd Eichholz

The term serendipity, or phrase ‘Happy Accident’, is often mentioned when we think of good tidings or a pleasant surprise that seemingly comes out of nowhere – ‘out of the clear blue sky’. But those who know Todd Eichholz and Bob Olson will attribute their growing good fortune, and that of their company’s, as one with a source much higher than the blue sky… From a series of events, starting with a long lunch, a new connection and an invitation to attend the Global Leadership Summit – Todd, his partner Bob Olson, and the entire team at A&A Paving has transformed their company…

Walk-A-Mile with Wayside Cross Ministries

February 24th, 2017

The song, Walk A Mile in My Shoes, written in 1969 by Joe South, later made famous by Elvis Presley, spoke of the need to see the world through each other’s eyes, during a turbulent period in our nation’s history. Since that time, the phrase has taken on a host of meanings, not the least of which is the call for us to understand the plight of those less fortunate than us. Each year the Elgin Wayside Center holds the Walk-A-Mile fundraiser in the middle of February, to help those more fortunate to identify with what the homeless experience on…

Phil’s Friends Hosts A&A Paving

January 11th, 2017

For Phil Zielke, adversity came at him in the form of stage 4B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma — not once, but twice. Diagnosed in April 2004, he endured aggressive treatments and tested free of the cancer by October that year. In April 2005, doctors told Zielke the cancer had returned. After another round of treatment — this time including a stem cell transplant — Zielke was again cancer-free by November 2005. He emerged from the cancer with his health, with a deeper faith and with a greater sense of purpose for his life. He would help others through their own fights with…

A&A Helps U-Haul Lift Their Curb Appeal

November 15th, 2016

Paving projects are like snowflakes, none are exactly the same.  This one certainly had unique objectives and challenges.  In reality the client did not know where to begin for this project.  That’s why they contacted A&A.  Having previously completed several projects for them, they knew we would come up with a solution to meet their needs. Before any plans were developed, several discussions and meetings were needed to find out what our client was trying to achieve.  This project was complicated in that only a portion of this large site was being developed.   A multiple use plan for most of…

Who Are We?

April 9th, 2016

What better way to share with you who we are than pulling the main themes from their responses!
