Pella Concrete Contractors, Inc. was founded in 1967 by Nelson Bogaard. It began as a two person operation with a pickup truck, homemade trailer, and a used Bobcat skid loader. The company’s main focus at that time was pouring residential concrete for local home builders, including basement floors, driveways, garage floors, patios and sidewalks. Gradually the scope of work shifted to include small commercial projects as well as farm work, which included feeding floors, confinements and pole barn floors.
In the mid-to-late seventies, the company bought its first set of aluminum wall forms to allow it to construct concrete basements for the same local builders that it had started with. Soon after, a backhoe, dump truck, and other excavating equipment were added to further expand its capabilities. More employees were hired as needed, which made it possible to have several jobs in progress at the same time.
Nelson has two sons, Randy and Mike, who both started working for Pella Concrete full time right out of high school. Later, both sons became part-owners, as well as project supervisors on job sites. Together, the three partners have built, expanded, and grown the business into what it is today.
The company can handle almost any concrete project in the commercial, industrial, agricultural or residential fields. During the peak season, the company has 25 or more people on its payroll.
In 2005, Pella Concrete moved into a new facility just north of Pella at 669 Hwy T14 (Main Street). This move had been several years in the planning. It allowed the company to further expand its capabilities, and to better maintain its fleet of trucks and equipment.
Since 1967, Pella Concrete Contractors, Inc., has built and maintained a solid reputation as a trustworthy and dependable company. It is known for its exceptional quality and far reaching capabilities, while keeping prices competitive with current markets.
