Thank you for your interest in A & R Flatwork & Poured Walls. My name is Andy Chadwick and I have been in the concrete contracting business for 15 years. Over that time I have learned what is important to our customers: quality and efficiency. A & R can deliver both. I have tried employing large crews and sales people. The conclusion I have come to the conclusion that I just plain enjoy the hands-on-work of the concrete business. As a result, our crew consists of 2-3 dependable employees and myself. I love meeting with customers, getting their input, understanding what is important to them, and seeing their reaction when the job is completed the way they wanted it. We have many long-term customer relationships. I do not understand how anyone can expect to send a bunch of employees out to your job and expect everything to go smoothly. The job simply turns out better when the people you hire enjoy their work, and you can communicate directly with the me because I am working on your job site. In that low pressure setting, customers and I can double check our form work before concrete arrives and not have last minute problems.
Because we are a small company, we have invested in equipment to make ourselves more efficient. For our poured walls we purchased our forms from the industry leading Durand Forms. They are transported on a 6- wheel drive truck and are moved around the site with its 67' Palfinger crane. We also have a small rubber track bulldozer. This is the ideal piece of equipment for excavating and grading for concrete slabs and driveways. When excavation can be done efficiently, the result is always superior quality. With these pieces of equipment, our crew can be as productive as crews three times our size.
Please take some time to look through our web site. If you have any questions use the "contact us" page to e-mail me or you can always call me at 231-922-0900 or 231-631-9330.
