About Us

A R O Enterprises, Inc., located in Elk Grove, Illinois, prides itself on being a family-owned and operated business since 1971. Ted Blakeslee, now owner of the company is following in his father’s footsteps. Ted grew up in the family snow business and prides A R O Enterprises, Inc. on its devotion to service, value and reputation. Serving the North Western suburbs of Chicago, A R O has grown into a successful business, developing best practice methods and services of the highest quality.


A & O Snowplowing Service, a division of A R O Enterprises, Inc. has designed, engineered and maintained a fleet of small to large trucks, loaders and salters, because the “Job” of snowplowing is no longer as simple as putting a plow on a truck. It has truly become a science. 40 years of testing designs on trucks and salters has earned A R O the most efficient snow management equipment in the industry. Whether it being a single truck or large articulated loader, equipment is ready to go. If ever a breakdown, A R O has backup equipment to make repairs in house. A R O develops and operates their own in house liquid deicing methods to help reduce salt damage and present a cleaner property to clients.

Snow Production

A R O does not subcontract any of the production or management of their snow services, because as we know Chicago snow storms can go from a predictable 2” to a blizzard of 22”. It’s because of this level of unpredictability that Ted doesn’t trust his sites to part time hired help as many contractors do. Work must be completed by well trained staff. In this way, Ted and his team can keep service lean and effective while providing competitive pricing. Ted can often be found on site with his crews or clients at any given time of the night to make sure quality and standards are being met.

“We are not interested in being the largest snow contractor in the area”, says Ted. “We just want to be the best at what we do.” If you’re looking for a contractor who prides his reputation on his work and quality…Ted and his team at A R O Enterprises, Inc. would love to work with you.
