Founded in 2001 as a small crew focused on commercial flatwork, Concrete Technology Incorporated (CTI) (Grimes, Iowa) has grown to more than 150 employees and has expanded its scope of services to include heavy highway paving, DOT and municipality work.
CTI has also expanded to include both ready-mix and recycling divisions. “Our paving side is kind of our bread-and-butter now, but we also have a pretty good size of commercial crews that do [data centers], your bigger warehouses, [gas stations]—a lot of that,” explains Charlie Knudsen, paving operations manager, CTI. “So we do a little of everything. We even started recycling back about five years ago, where we crush our own stone. And then we have a sister ready-mix company so we can haul our own concrete also.”
