Carl’s Ready Mix has been a family-owned business since 1986. For nearly 30 years the company has produced and supplied concrete materials for commercial and residential projects big and small, including the Oakmont, Burbank Housing, Fountaingrove, and Sky Hawk subdivisions.
When Carl Davis started his own company in the mid 1980s he had already been in the concrete business for more than 15 years, gaining expertise and a customer base that respected his work ethic, so he was ready to strike out on his own. He started with one eight-year old concrete mixer truck and he and his wife ran the business out of the family room for a number of years, with Carl’s wife connecting him to contractors via two-way radio. In 1988 he got his first cell phone for the business and as communications improved so did his volume of business, which has grown steadily ever since to now include his familiar, bright red concrete mixer trucks.
After all these years in business, Carl is very proud of his A+ business rating with the BBB. Carl’s two daughters and his son-in-laws Keven and Thomas have also joined the business, and the family cites the personal service, expertise, and attention they provide to their customers and contractors, and Carl’s friendly, professional manner, as important factors in the company’s longevity and continued success.
