Our History



Joe Leritz founded Leritz Contracting in 1983 as a premier contractor for commercial asphalt paving work. Since that time, we’ve built our company on the philosophy of attracting and retaining the best workers with the highest level of skill and integrity who provide our customers with excellent product and superior service. This has led to continued growth over our nearly 30 year history through a solid base of loyal clients, and our reputation for providing the right solution while working within the clients’ budgets and schedules.


In 2003, Leritz expanded through the acquisition of Busy Bee Paving in North St. Louis County. The two companies share the same philosophy, making the partnership a natural fit, and allowing each of us to grow our offerings through increased equipment, manpower, and market capabilities.
