About Us

In 1999 Mike McElroy and Frank Fonseca had a vision. At the time Mike was working as a paving superintendent–foreman and Frank was a Local 3 grinder operator. They worked together on numerous occasions on various job sites over ten years. The two became friends and worked so well together, they decided to buy their own milling machine. This is when Fonseca McElroy Grinding began (FMG).

Graniterock

On April 30, 2014—FMG was acquired by Graniterock, a company that was founded 114 years ago in 1900. Both companies corporate culture are closely aligned. FMG will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Graniterock using the FMG name and continue its 15 year tradition of providing top quality asphalt milling, grinding, pulverizing, and cold-in-place recycling.

Performance Value Reliability Seal

Our operation supports a broad range of private and public agency projects. Our management brings over 100 combined years experience in roads and highway construction.

We’ve also expanded our service offerings, with selective evolution, adding Cold-In-Place Recycling (CIR) with Expanded Foam. We felt it was the right and responsible thing to do because our customers wanted sound alternatives in managing their pavement and infrastructure.
 

We attribute our continued growth and success for many reasons, some of our primary ones:

  • Our loyal customers continue to call on us because we stand behind our service.
  • Our people make the difference.

Zero waste approach

  • “It is a beautiful thing when a Green solution is also the most cost effective solution.”
    Michael J. Murdter P.E.,
    Director Roads and Airports Department, County of Santa Clara

  • “This is very meaningful for us primarily because we do not have enough funds to take care of our roads. CIR is very successful in terms of quality, ease of construction and minimal impact on our community.”
    Hans F. Larsen P.E.,
    Director of Transportation, City of San Jose

  • “We are very committed to CIR and we want to close the loop on Recycling by your soon-to-be-deployed Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR), where we can utilize millings from our roads, which are currently going to dump sites and increasing our landfill, to be recycled and reused in our road projects.”
    George M. Bolton III,
    Construction Manager, County of Alameda Public Works Agency

  • “We liked CIR on our projects. It is fast and the minimal dust during construction is huge for us and our residents.”
