There’s nothing better than getting recognized on Valentine’s Day and—this season especially–we’re feel’in the love!  That’s because our CEO Alan Rose has been publicly acknowledged for outstanding business achievement.  Prior to founding Rose Pallet, Alan spent 40 years in the paving industry as founder and CEO of Rose Paving Company.  Recently, Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction magazine, the leading publication serving contractors in the paving industry, honored Alan with a “Hall of Fame” award.

Alan was invited to attend the industry’s largest conference, the National Pavement Expo, as a distinguished guest of the second-annual Pavement Awards, which were presented Wednesday evening, January 27, at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC.  The awards program was first launched in 2015 to coincide with National Pavement Expo’s 30th year and is now an annual event.

Although Alan is no longer active in the paving industry, his decades of service and involvement with the National Pavement Expo made him worthy of inclusion in the paving Hall of Fame recognizing outstanding business achievement.

“Since 1985, we’ve written about people and companies dedicated to not only growing their own businesses but enhancing the paving and pavement maintenance industry,” explained Allan Heydorn, editor of Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction. “So we decided to honor those dedicated to serving the industry with public recognition, thanks, and appreciation.”

This year, 14 awards were bestowed upon individuals or companies in nine different categories including excellence in jobsite execution, industry service, community service, and the paving Hall of Fame.

The magazine staff, in conjunction with the Pavement Advisory Board, evaluated the nominations and selected the award recipients. Pavement’s February magazine issue profiles the industry award winners and additional information is posted on

Rose Pallet is proud of Alan for earning this distinction and we LOVE that he continues to bring the same level of passion and enthusiasm to the world of pallets.  Thank you, Alan, and congratulations!
