n 1870, the use of asphalt for paving began on a stretch of road in front of city hall in Newark, New Jersey under the direction of Professor E.J. DeSmedt, a Belgian chemist. Two years later in 1872, Luther M. Pike of New Hampton, New Hampshire founded Pike’s Improved Concrete Company at the age of twenty-one. The company quickly grew to three crews of ten men each aided by twelve teams of horses. Aside from the horses and wagons, the equipment primarily consisted of rakes, shovels, hand rollers, and barrels for mixing the asphalt. During the winter months, Luther took on lumbering projects to keep his men busy. Pike’s Improved Concrete Company established itself as a reputable paving company, and business began to spread throughout central New Hampshire and into parts of Vermont and eastern New York. One of the first major contracts in Vermont was the paving of West Street, also known locally as Merchants Row, in Rutland circa 1880. Then in 1886, Luther purchased Robie Construction Co., and merged his own company with Robie, and moved the business to Manchester, New Hampshire. In the late 1800’s, Milo Lindell Pike, third son of Luther and Ella Pike, set up a new business with some help from his father; the best raker on Robie’s payroll and a $10,000 loan. His new business was set up under the name of L.M. Pike & Son back in the New Hampton area. Around 1920, Randolph Kelley Pike, Milo’s only son, joined the business after having served in the Army in World War I. By this time, automobiles had gained popularity and were taking to the highways in large numbers. Realizing that the company would not be able to handle the demand for the growing number of contracts with the hand method of mixing, Randolph purchased a 500 pound Warren Bros. batch plant in 1923 and set it up in Tilton, New Hampshire. <img src="http://www.pikeindustries.com/img/oldtimers.jpg">
