Credit: Cantera Concrete Co.

Formed in 2001, Cantera Concrete Co. is a private company with a strong financial position and virtually unlimited bonding capacity. Cantera cites its bonding relationship with the Chubb Group of Insurance Cos., its banking ties with industry leaders J.P. Morgan Chase, the Bank of Oklahoma, and Bank of America, as well as insurance coverage through Rooney Insurance Agency, as contributing to its success.

Through the downturn in 2009-10, Cantera held on by showing owners, construction managers, and general contractors how to reduce their risk by using a company with a successful track record. These clients received better pricing thanks to competitive and cost-driven estimates, combined with seasoned project teams dedicated to building quality projects.
