West Tennessee Region member Fossett Paving Company is our January subcontractor member in the spotlight.  Fossett is a locally owned business that focuses on the needs of customers, providing quality service, competitive pricing, and completing projects on schedule and has made it a goal to be to be the most respected paving company in each area they serve.  Like many companies, Fossett finds itself with a younger generation coming on board and in 2022 they supported the inaugural class of the Construction Leadership Academy by sponsoring three students to attend the course. In addition, the company supports AGC through participation in a variety of events throughout the year and participates in the Construction Leadership Council activities, as well. We appreciate all that Fossett Paving contributes to AGC.
