History: Established 1969
This family owned and operated business has been a regional leader in concrete construction for over 50 years. Woody & Melva Houck began this business with partners in 1969, eventually buying them out in 1971 and running it from their home. In 1972, B&H Concrete were the one of the first in the area to utilize an Easi-Pour (photo below). Their son started working for them in 1974 and, at the age of 14, had a shovel put in his hand. Woody believed that Tim should learn the business from the ground up, which he did. In the early 1990s, Tim saw an opportunity in the commercial and residential concrete and masonry markets. The diversification and ensuing rapid growth propelled B&H into the Top 100 Concrete Contractors in the country. In 1998, Tim took over as President. The oldest daughter, Val, began working with Melva in the office in 1979 after leaving the education field. The youngest of their children, Laurie, joined them full time after earning her degree in 1987. It is truly a family business that is run using the same strong, committed family values to which they adhere. That may be one reason why 30% of their employees have remained with them over 20 years.
