Specialty Concrete Producers

Concrete is a construction material composed of cement (commonly known as Portland cement) as well as other cementitious materials such as slag cement or fly ash, aggregates – rocks (generally a coarse aggregate such as gravel, limestone, or granite, plus a fine aggregate such as sand), water, and chemical admixtures. Dry cement is so fine that 1 pound of cement contains 150 billion grains. Concrete, the final product from concrete, is used more than any other man-made material in the world.

George L. Throop Co. is a specialty ready-mix concrete producer specializing in Rapid Set® Cement and also specialty cements and grouts. We can produce from 1 to 60 cubic yards per hour, per truck. Our volumetric mobile concrete portable batch plants range in size from small truck mounted units that can handle 5 yards to large 18-wheel trailer-haul mobile batch plants that can have as much through-put as there are materials on hand.
