Pouring Ourselves Into It Since 1927

As a family-led business, having a values-oriented, people-focused culture is at the heart of who we are.

After four generations and over 96 years, the Cemstone name (pronounced using the soft sound of “s”, not the hard sound of “k”) has become synonymous with high quality products and unparalleled service in the ready mix concrete industry in the Upper Midwest.

Our reputation is reflected in the structures we’ve helped create and our long-held and long-practiced commitment to our core values: DEMAND Safety, EXPECT Integrity, DRIVE Excellence, EMPOWER Innovation, and EMBRACE Collaboration.


96 Years Strong

When Hammon T. Becken founded the company in 1927, he made sure the company was known for an intense work ethic, unwavering business integrity and a commitment to never cut corners but rather keep an eye on what lies around the next corner.

Our history reflects nearly a century of strong values, dedicated people and state-of-the-science technology committed to our products and services.

From the early days when sand was dug by hand and sold by the bushel, to today’s high-tech methods of producing quality ready mixed concrete and aggregates for an ever-changing construction market, Cemstone has developed a tradition of consistent quality, proven performance, and growth through innovation.
