Bob Thompson Inducted Into Asphalt Pavement Hall of Fame
Robert (Bob) M. Thompson is the 2018 inductee to the
Asphalt Pavement Hall of Fame. The Asphalt Pavement
Hall of Fame was established to recognize and honor
individuals who have made significant and lasting
contributions of regional and/or national importance
to the asphalt industry and whose work has led to
innovations in the production and placement of asphalt,
the usage of asphalt as a paving material, and/or the
general advancement and recognition of the industry.
"Through Bob's efforts, a framework for greater
cooperation and trust among industry, labor, and
government was developed, fostering successful partnering
to improve worker safety," said Dan Gallagher, 2017 NAPA
Chairman.
Under Thompson's leadership, NAPA formed the
Engineering Controls Task Force, ushering in a new era of
cooperation between industry, labor, and government. The
Asphalt Partnership that evolved from this effort has been
studied as a best practices model for how multi-stakeholder
research-to-practice partnerships can work. The Asphalt
Partnership led to the development of paver controls to
reduce worker exposure to asphalt fumes. The same model
resulted in engineering controls for milling machines,
providing the industry with an easy path to compliance
with OSHA silica regulators when milling asphalt
pavements.
Thompson started in the road construction and
maintenance industry in 1959, and he quickly focused
on asphalt paving, building the Thompson-McCully
Co. into one of the largest paving companies in the
Midwest. He remained at the helm of Thompson-McCully

until 1999, when he sold the company to CRH PLC.
Thompson earned national recognition, including
the Engineering News-Record Award of Excellence,
for distributing millions of dollars from the sale to
Thompson-McCully's 550 employees. He further
demonstrated his commitment to people and the
community by investing in charter schools in Detroit.
Thompson is the only person to serve as chairman
of NAPA, chairman of the National Center for Asphalt
Technology Board of Directors, and chairman of
the NAPA Research and Education Foundation
Board of Trustees, leaving a significant impression
on each body. He played an important role in the
establishment of NCAT, and he was responsible for
much of the behind-the-scenes work that helped
secure the center's building.
During his time with NAPA, Thompson also worked
to build greater cooperation within the industry,
strengthening the partnership among NAPA, the
State Asphalt Pavement Associations, and the Asphalt
Institute to address common industry interests and
challenges, including asphalt fumes, stone-matrix
asphalt, and asphalt rubber.
