From a decorative concrete specialist to a multiscope commercial firm, many of this year’s America’s Concrete Contractors stories unravel from a similar thread: Success rides on the family connection. Set back by illness a few years ago, a dad enlists his son’s support to launch the sidewalk/driveway business that will pay the bills. At the other end of the spectrum, two brothers who started with a wheelbarrow 50 years ago are still together at the helm of what is now a multimillion dollar company. And there’s the husband-wife team that opened an office in their home and a construction yard on a nearby farm. Also featured are two firms under third-generation leadership and three more with century-old roots in a family business. Success, like families, comes in all shapes and sizes.
