Concrete is such an integral part of the construction industry that sometimes it’s easy to take it for granted. But contractors can run into huge delays if they don’t have a reliable concrete source, and a situation that holds up concrete delivery en-masse can even tank construction deadlines across even whole states Having a trusted concrete provider is a must.

These concrete contractors have been maintaining their work over the past few years amidst the difficulty of the pandemic and other geopolitical issues, and many of them took massive steps forward as they made their way higher on Engineering News Report’s 2022 rankings of specialty contractors. Let’s take a look at the top 10 largest concrete contractors in 2023.
