Wayne Davis Concrete Co. was founded in 1971 by
Wayne and Joyce Davis in Tallapoosa, Haralson County, Georgia, on
the same site where it currently operates. The operation has grown
steadily over the past several years, but is still managed using the
same family business philosophy that has created 30 successful years
in business. In 1978, with the purchase of a Carrollton location and
business growth, the operation was incorporated as a Georgia Corporation.
In 1980, they purchased a small plant in Bremen, Haralson County,
Georgia, which was later absorbed into the other plants. In 1987,
we purchased an existing operation in Villa Rica, Carroll County,
Georgia. This made the company’s third location.
In the spring of 1989, Wayne Davis passed away leaving his wife and
children to operate the business. They are still currently involved
in the daily operation of the company. Chris Davis is the CEO
and Wade Davis is
the Vice President of Quality Assurance, and Todd Davis is over
Operations. Richard Davis, her nephew, is Vice President of Finance.
In April, 1990, the company opened its fourth plant in Hiram, Paulding
County, Georgia. In 1993, the company renovated and installed a new
batch plant in Tallapoosa, built a new corporate office building in
Tallapoosa and built a new ready mix plant in Rockmart, Polk County,
Georgia. The year was packed with growth and hard work as we prepared
to meet the concrete needs of the West Georgia area.
During the next several years the company worked hard to manage the
internal growth and continue to provide the highest quality of customer
service and products that had made us successful. In November 1997,
we acquired an existing operation in Douglasville, Douglas County,
Georgia which bought us to six plants. In 1999, we relocated the plant
to a new location inside the LaFarge Aggregate Quarry in Douglasville
and installed a new ready mix batch plant.
In January, 1998, we purchased another concrete operation with plants
in Cedartown, Polk County, Georgia and New Georgia, Paulding County,
Georgia. We closed the Cedartown plant due to its age and location
and we renovated the New Georgia plant to meet our customer needs
in that area of Paulding County.
Today all of our plants are computerized from batching and dispatching
to the billing of customer over our wide area computer network. We
are the largest family owned ready mix producer based in the West
Georgia area. We also market other concrete related products and services
to our customers through our outside sales force. We can supply our
customers with crushed stone, sand, block and related masonry products
for their jobsites and construction projects.
Today, we currently operate 14 ready mix plants, a fleet of ready mix
trucks and employ well trained personnel to service your needs.
We are proud of our success and look forward to continue growth
