Prime, Tack & Seal Co. has been a woman owned and operated company since its inception in 1979 by Jan Vollmer. Her education into the asphalt world began when she was just a child and played at her father’s asphalt plant a few blocks from where they lived. As soon as she was old enough to get a job her Dad put her to work at the plant taking tickets and she eventually worked her way into the office. Her father was a successful asphalt manufacturer for 43 years and as her mentor gave her the inspiration to start her own business in the same industry.

Becoming a certified Woman Business Enterprise in the first years of operating, Jan graduated from the program in 1999 and never looked back. Now Prime, Tack & Seal is the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area’s number-one provider of spraying bituminous materials with a service area spanning Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Northwestern Indiana. Our extensive customer list demonstrates the expertise we provide and the trust that the paving contractors have in Prime, Tack & Seal Co.
