John H. Thompson

Owner & President


It is fair to say that John literally grew up in the road construction industry. His family owned Thompson-McCully Company, the largest asphalt paving enterprise in Michigan. Following time spent in the military, John worked at a variety of positions from laborer to equipment operator to foreman, learning the asphalt materials business from the inside out.


In 1999, he was ready to take his experience and strike out in a business of his own, Thompson Recycle Company, which had started as a division of Thompson-McCully four years earlier. The nearly two decades since have seen the company grow from one mobile processing plant to several, making John’s days even busier. John attributes the company’s success to the focus on meeting customers’ needs without exception or excuse that he learned early in his career at Thompson-McCully under his father Robert Thompson’s leadership


Joshua Ott

Operations Manager


Josh is responsible for oversight of the plants that recycle asphalt. He works with plant foreman to keep equipment working smoothly and production humming along. He recently has had “drone operator” added to his job duties as he assesses tonnage at upcoming job sites.

Lynne Evans

Office Manager

With a background in marketing and project management, heavy equipment definitely is not in Lynne’s wheelhouse. She joined the company in 2017 and has brought her project skills to improving office process and function. She is responsible for HR and office staff for Thompson Recycle Company. And she is proud that she now knows the difference between a loader and an excavator.
