ConcreteSouth is located in the heart of the deep south and is comprised of two companies that are engaged in the business of providing quality ready-mix concrete in Alabama and Georgia.
In Alabama, Kirkpatrick Concrete serves North Alabama and the greater Birmingham metro area. Kirkpatrick's Southern Division, better known in the marketplace as Hodgson Concrete, serves the Montgomery, Alabama market, while Walker Concrete services Atlanta and other Georgia communities. All companies have a long tradition of service in their respective communities with Kirkpatrick tracing its beginnings back to 1892.
The automotive industry dominates southern industrial expansion. Georgia now has more than 40,000 people working for 296 auto related facilities while Alabama produced a record-setting one million vehicles in 2015. New industry is also looking to this warmer region of our country with 186 solar companies calling Georgia home (Figures taken from recent information reported by Yellow Hammer, Georgia Power and SIEA respectively ). Other growth-leading sectors include energy, agriculture, product distribution and high tech industries. The heavy use of roads and interstates fuels the addition and replacement of roadways, interstate exchanges and bridges.
Kirkpatrick and Walker are well positioned to grow with this region. They have the people, plants, raw material and rolling stock in place. The stable history of our member companies enables them to expand with the needs of the marketplace while ensuring they will be there for the long run.
