Skip Aston founded Ohio Concrete Sawing and Drilling in 1981, after having worked with another concrete cutting company. In the early '80s, as a recession swept the country, money was tight, so whenever Ohio Concrete had a job for which they did not own the equipment, Skip and his staff would go out and buy it. The team at Ohio Concrete had only needed an extra day or two in order to acquire the larger core bit or blade.
With this "go-getter" mindset, growth for Ohio Concrete Sawing and Drilling continued throughout the '80s, as the company added branches in Columbus (1983), Detroit (1986), Dayton/Cincinnati (1988), and Cleveland/Akron (1991). With these additions, Ohio Concrete was able to service the entire state of Ohio as well as Southeast Michigan, Northern Kentucky, Western Pennsylvania, and Eastern Indiana.
In the last 15 years, we at Ohio Concrete have been proactive in our efforts to respond to both the volatile economic climate and the changing construction industry. These efforts have included the following:
Conversion of some of the hydraulic systems in order to utilize more environmentally friendly fluids.
Addition of high cycle equipment to eliminate the need for hydraulics in most cases. Each branch should be equipment with setups near the end of next year.
Broadening of services in order to offer concrete polishing, flooring preparation, electric interior excavation, and wire sawing - since these services allow us to meet more of the needs of our customer base
Expansion into Southeast Florida with the purchase of ABC Concrete Cutting, a company that has been in Southeast Florida since 1971 and is the largest concrete cutting contractor in the area.
Additional Nashville, Tennessee location added in 2017 to expand our reach of services and expertise
Creation of industry-specific training programs for safety and operation
Extensive Silica Compliance with medical testing and additional training to esure your jobsite remains safe.
Ohio Concrete is transitioning into its next generation of leadership, and we are making every effort to ensure the success of the company for several decades into the future. We take pride in our size and our ability to help our customers. To this end, we are constantly striving to improve our service and grow our company in order to better serve you.
We recognize customers have other options available and will call us only if we meet or exceed their expectations. We believe these expectations are:
