While a professional services consulting firm named Garver spent nearly 30 years perfecting its strategy for assisting airports in managing pavement, big box retailers prolifically opened store after store across the country. As the parking lots for those big box stores deteriorated over time, the retailers saw substantial amounts of their profits being dumped into maintaining their aging parking lots. Walmart, the world's largest retailer, sought Garver's assistance to implement proven pavement management strategies for the management of Walmart parking lots in the hopes of maximizing the life of their pavement assets. The decision to hire Garver has led to an increased life for Walmart's parking lots and is yielding the company significant savings.
Garver continues to assist airports, but created AssetMax to have a team solely devoted to becoming the leader in the pavement management industry, with a focus on saving people money. Our goal is to transform how the world manages pavement assets by integrating engineering, statistics, and analytics to provide innovative business solutions.
