An industry pioneer known for its iconic and unmistakable yellow bag of concrete, The QUIKRETE® Companies was founded in 1940. During the past 80 years, The QUIKRETE® Companies evolved from a fledgling building material supplier in Columbus, Ohio to the largest manufacturer of pre-blended, packaged concrete and cementitious products in North America. Today, The QUIKRETE Companies is a scalable, single source for commercial, residential and industrial building, repair and rehabilitation products that proudly contributes to the growth and health of our country’s structure and infrastructure every day.
QUIKRETE® has been recognized as the one true national brand in the market, as the only supplier serving all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico, Canada and parts of South America. With over 60 years in the concrete manufacturing business, QUIKRETE® is one of the most experienced.
Each one of the QUIKRETE® Licensed manufacturer’s product lines are continuously evaluated and tested to ensure the best possible product quality. QUIKRETE® is also dedicated to creating new products at their Technical Center, where they undergo product stress and durability tests. All QUIKRETE® products are rigorously tested to maintain high standards. It all began in Columbus, Ohio, in the early 1940s. Gene Winchester was General Manager of Maintenance Products, Inc., a company that produced stucco for commercial uses. This company eventually became The QUIKRETE® Companies.
As QUIKRETE® grew, so did interest throughout the country for product manufacturing and distribution. Today, there are more than 75 manufacturing facilities with plants located throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. In addition, QUIKRETE® designs and produces its own patented machinery to measure, blend and package its products.
QUIKRETE® moved its corporate headquarters from Columbus, Ohio, to Atlanta, Georgia in 1981. The company operates a research and development technical center, which also serves as the hub of QUIKRETE® quality assurance.
Today, the QUIKRETE® line has more than 100 products for residential and commercial uses.
