“We choose to…do…[these] things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills.”
—John F. Kennedy
Concrete Services of Northwest Arkansas started out as a small company of 10 guys. Our numbers have grown to 50, but we’re still down-to-earth, everyday, fun guys who love our work. We think that just because it’s hard, doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Part of the joy we take in our work is seeing a job through and getting it done right. Based on our hundreds of years of combined experience in general and concrete contracting, we have built a defined management and administration structure that enables us to manage large projects efficiently and without the need for client supervision.
We employ more than fifty skilled craftsmen, who are full-time employees dedicated to doing their best for Concrete Services and for you.
