Hoover Dam from above

Last year we sold over 53,000 bags of combined concrete products. With an average of 65 lbs per sack, that’s a little over 1,700 tons. Now it’s not enough to build Hoover Dam, but it is enough to ask...


Would the world exist without Concrete?


Concrete and cement are not the same thing.


Concrete comes from the Latin word concretus. — compact/condensed


Egyptians used concrete as infill for building pyramids.


The oldest piece of concrete is 12 million years old, it was discovered in Israel in the 1960’s.


Thomas Edison experimented with precast concrete houses.


The Pantheon built in 120 AD by Emperor Hadrian is the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world.


Building Hoover Dam

Today concrete is one of the most widely used man-made materials in the world.


Concrete technology was developed in the 1750’s.


Reinforced concrete was invented in 1849.


The 1st concrete bridge was built in 1889.


Hoover dam is made of concrete and was built in 1936.


Concrete is comprised of three things: Aggregate (rock, sand, gravel) + Water + Portland Cement


Portland cement is the “glue” that holds it all together. Heat limestone with clay, then mix in a sulfate, usually gypsum, and Presto! Concrete.
