Company History

H. David Brusman, Jr – Over 40 years as the owner/President of Vandalia Blacktop.

Welcome to Vandalia Blacktop & Sealcoating, Inc.

In 1975 when I was manually hauling sealer out of 55-gallon drums, it would have been difficult to visualize how far the company would progress. Originally, I operated under the name Vandalia Blacktop Sealers (VBS) since business was primarily sealcoating for residential and small parking lots. My first goal was simple –- make enough money to help put myself through college –- not immediately recognizing the groundwork I was laying for a future business.

In 1981 my perspective changed when I graduated from Wright State University with a dual business degree. Our country was in the midst of a major recession and career opportunities in my field of study were limited. Then in 1982 my wife and I decided to make a life/business commitment to invest in VBS as our primary source of income. It was difficult at first, but we believed this was the right direction and poured our time, revenue and energy into the business.

Throughout the late 80’s and 90’s VBS experienced steady growth. In 1987 we became incorporated under the name Vandalia Blacktop & Sealcoating, Inc. to recognize our expansion into other asphalt related areas. Beginning in 1998 through 2014, our company growth steadily increased through investment in experienced upper management, personnel, full-time associates and the latest equipment in the industry.

Today we have over 50 employees operating out of 4 locations. The outlook for the immediate future is bright, and we will continue to provide outstanding customer service with the finest products in the industry.

Any mention of success would not be complete without voicing my belief that the company would not be where it is today without the blessing of the Lord Jesus Christ and our commitment to Godly principles.
