Company Description
What began in 1969 as a specialty market idea for Rapid-Repair Concrete with the Western Company of North America has developed into a company serving five major markets for Concrete and Building Stone in Texas. Mr. Paul Reinhart and a small group of investors bought this particular part of the Western Company in 1971 and changed its name to Custom-Crete.

In 2000, Custom-Crete was acquired by Oldcastle during which time the company continued to grow through organic and acquisition driven growth. This included the purchase of Ashley Concrete in May of 2014. Later that same year, Custom-Crete was acquired by U.S. Concrete and merged with Mobile-Crete out of central and south Texas. This brought the company to its current size of 115 volumetric mixers and 230 employees.

Custom Crete’s services are unique because of its ability to mix concrete at the job sites. By only charging customers what they actually pour and not what they order Custom-Crete can save most customers over 10% on their concrete needs. Using our custom-made continuous volumetric mixers, Custom-Crete is able to mix specification concrete, in no-waste quantities, at the times needed.

Unlike normal ready-mix suppliers, Custom-Crete is able to service slow pours, difficult to measure quantities, small quantities, colored concrete, rapid-setting concrete, Fast Fix Flowable Fill, and extra-long distance pours, all with relative ease. The customer base includes home owners, utility contractors, general contractors, city service agencies, swimming pool contractors, and customers who need fast-setting or other specialty mixes, odd amounts or off-hour service.

Custom Crete has been built on the premise that our customers have special needs and so we have developed unique equipment, facilities and superior customer service. Custom-Crete maintains a series of loading sites in each market to help increase service and flexibility to our customers. We hire and train our people to be the best in the industry. Our “Can Do” attitude puts us in a position to supply materials in situations that others cannot service economically.
