The success of a contractor is not measured by size, but by quality of work, committed employees, and a healthy bottom line. This year’s America’s Concrete Contractors stories focus on those who have thrived for many years in an industry that is known for its ups and downs. Starting off with only five employees 13 years ago, a small East Coast contractor has made a big impact. Founded 69 years ago, another contractor continues to thrive with employees who have been around for more than 20 years. A few of the contractors bring diversity into the concrete world because they are minority-owned. Innovation, professionalism, longevity, dedication, and expansion are shared characteristics that separate these contractors from the pack.
