2016 Sweeper of the Year: Gabe Vitale – C & L Sweeper Service, Inc.


Last week, during the National Pavement Expo in Charlotte, NC, our own Gabe Vitale, owner of C&L Sweeper Services in Jackson, NJ, was presented with the first-ever Sweeper of the Year award. NPE in conjunction with and Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction Magazine established nine industry awards which will be given to recognize individuals and companies. These awards were presented to recipients who have enhanced the paving and pavement maintenance industry through their professionalism, dedication to education, pursuit of excellence, and development of equipment, tools or materials.

The Pavement staff, in conjunction with the Pavement Advisory Board, evaluated nominations and presented the inaugural award winners during a ceremony at the start of the National Pavement Expo on January 28, 2016. Pavement’s February issue will profile all of the award winners and industry leaders.

Below is an online excerpt from the article that will appear in the February issue of Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction Magazine:

“This family-owned business has been in operation since 1971 serving customers throughout the state of New Jersey. Led by owner Gabe Vitale and vice president Loring Dunton, the company believes in relationships, spending considerable time building solid relationships with both their customers and their employees. Realizing the need to diversify to thrive, along with an opportunity to capitalize on those relationships, the company now completes parking lot & street sweeping, total pavement maintenance-asphalt repair, line striping, crack filling, seal coating, power washing, parking deck scrubbing, street sign installation, paving & milling and more.

Their core values heavily reflect a commitment to building the employee culture as well with an overarching theme being that work should be something you enjoy. This relationship not only benefits the employees, but the company firmly believes that happy employees are easier to manage. Providing team members with proper training, incentives and team building opportunities allows C&L Services the ability to be successful on each jobsite.”

Please join the 1-800-SWEEPER family in congratulating Gabe on this honor!
