About

We Have Been Proudly Serving the Community’s Concrete Needs for More Than 65 Years

Founded in 1951 as a Ready-Mix concrete company, The Concrete Company has evolved over 65 years to become an industry leader in concrete pipe and aggregates throughout the southeast. We are currently composed of three branches that span over three states and ten locations: Foley Products Company, Foley Materials Company, and Columbus Quarry.

Foley Products Company was established in 1981 to manufacture precast, concrete, and concrete pipe, Foley Materials Company was developed to 1989 to supply aggregates to the ready mix plants, and in 2001 the Columbus Quarry was established as a joint venture with Florida Rock Industries. The Concrete Company became the sole owner of the Columbus Quarry in 2008.
