Winvan Paving is a family owned road construction company located in the Braid industrial area of New Westminster. The company has been located along the Fraser River since the 1960s where it first initially operated within sawmill owned by Commonwealth Construction. The company’s current location contains its head office, asphalt plant, asphalt recycling plant, barge ramp, and equipment maintenance and repair shop. Weismiller’s father and his partners purchased the company’s site from Commonwealth Construction in the 1970s. Since then Weismiller has been off and on with the company working various positions such as a crewman, estimator, project manager. In 2005 he became Winvan’s president and general manager. Throughout the interview Weismiller emphasizes the importance of industrial lands and resource extraction to British Columbia’s economy, and the difficulties in working with different levels of government to deal with various issues facing the business in Braid’s industrial area, especially traffic.
