The Foundation for Quality Custom Homes

The Foundation for Quality: Custom Concrete Celebrates 50 Years

This year, Custom Concrete in Westfield is celebrating 50 years of business in Central Indiana.And while most builders and residents today are accustomed to seeing the blue and white Custom Concrete trucks and equipment on job sites or in transit during the morning or evening commute, the company we recognize is quite a bit different than how it started out back in 1969.

Custom Concrete’s Jason Ells featured on Gut + Science Podcast

Many organizations tout a corporate ladder, positions employees can “create” for themselves and virtually unlimited opportunity within their structure. But they don’t provide a roadmap to the ladder or a path to success for team members who aren’t sure where they want to go (but know they don’t want to stay where they are forever). Not to mention, if they do have an organizational chart it just shows where everyone currently is—not where they could be and certainly not how to get there. That’s why Custom Concrete made the decision to become a destination employer, a place where people would want to work because they see and hear what it’s like to be on our team and witness the potential for real professional growth. To do that, our first task was to develop a destination workforce…

Building a Stronger Community

Here at Custom Concrete we believe in the power of the group. Whether it’s the team pouring the foundation on a job site or the group planning our annual Christmas Breakfast, we’re better when we work together.
