The Conco Companies’ Martinez facility was recently honored as a recipient of the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District’s Pollution Prevention Award. All private businesses and organizations located within the Central San’s service area are eligible to enter the annual event. Award recipients are recognized for going above and beyond in their business practices in regard to pollution prevention and environmental protection.
The steps the Martinez facility took that helped them to receive the award include using recycled water to wash their trucks. The facility is also pretreating the water before it enters into the storm drain with an innovative sand-oil interceptor and has installed a new sawdust collector. Another thing the facility has done is to install solar panels and made the change to LED lights to help reduce the amount of electricity they are using.
Conco is honored to receive this award as we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations throughout our entire organization, and whenever possible we invest in and implement “green” technologies. We understand that these decisions not only make good business sense but can make a difference in the environment as well as to the health and wellbeing of our workforce, other tradespeople and the general public.

Conco is a leading supplier of concrete services for the Western United States. We have built our reputation with superior concrete formwork, reinforcing, place and finish, shotcrete and other ancillary services that benefit from our vast experience. Our concrete services include commercial, educational, parking and other construction development as well as public works projects and highways. The Conco Companies have four regional offices to serve California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Colorado.
The Conco Companies are proud to announce that once again our generous and kind-hearted employees have reached out this holiday season to help other area families in need. One of the charitable events was a toy drive for the Toys for Tots organization. Both our San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle region employees participated in the drive. Toys for Tots is an exceptional program run each year by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, who personally distribute the toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy gifts for Christmas. It was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.
Another of Conco’s charitable events was organized by employees from our Southern California Region. Their event was a very successful food drive that was done in partnership with the Salvation Army. Over the course of the event, the SC region collected enough food to help serve meals for more than 700 needy families.
This is just an example of the type of employees Conco is fortunate to have as part of our team. We also are proud to report they bring that same level of commitment to the workplace for every project we are involved in, which is what has helped us to become one of the leading commercial concrete contractors in the Western United States.
We recognize the trust our customers place in us once they choose our services, which is why we approach each project as a partnership from concept right through to a successful completion. Our goal is to meet or exceed expectations, minimalize problems, and stay on budget. We provide expert services and products that include concrete building design, rebar fabrication, concrete pumping, formwork, place and finishing, and shotcrete applications as well as construction trucking.
The Conco Companies are a leading supplier of concrete services throughout the Western U.S. We got our start in the Bay Area in 1959 by offering clients the best value on a wide range of concrete services and products and are now one of the foremost concrete contractors in the region. Our concrete services include commercial, educational, industrial and public works projects as well as parking structures.
The Conco Companies are a proud supporter of the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program at California State University, Chico. As one of the only programs of its kind in the Western half of the United States, CIM uniquely combines the academic curriculum of concrete sciences with practical business management skills and networking opportunities. CIM Graduates are prepared to become future leaders within the large and thriving concrete industry. In fact, in the last two years, 100% of program graduates have landed jobs in the concrete industry.
CIM is truly unique not only in its ability to teach fundamental concrete industry skills to young, excited students. It also leverages the expertise of leaders from across the concrete industry, including Conco, who have contributed over $2 million in direct support for the programs efforts. CEOs and executive leaders at Fortune 500 companies in the concrete industry are frequent program lecturers, mentors, and speakers. Giving students the ability to rub elbows with the industry’s most respected leaders inspires and educates them on how to become the leaders of tomorrow.
The CIM program is also hands on. Jerry Hight, Assistant Dean and Development Director at CSU Chico raves about student involvement in real construction projects in their area. “The Alcatraz project, the I-80 Cal-Trans project, are all opportunities for students to take the technology that they have learned in the classroom and apply it in a hands on fashion,” says Hight. Conco encourages anyone seeking a strong foundation in both the business and science of the concrete industry to check out CSU’s program. Donors and supporters of the program are constantly recruiting these amazing students and career opportunities for hardworking graduates are plentiful.
Conco is one of the leading concrete contractors in the Western U.S. and offer a wide range of quality services and products. While we tackle projects both big and small, our experience includes providing the entire cast-in-place concrete for the Wilshire Grand, the tallest building west of the Mississippi, along with other notable projects. We serve California, Washington State, Oregon, Colorado and Nevada.
