jacksuzieNorwalk Ready Mix Concrete, Inc. was founded by Jack and Susan Bohlender in 1971 in Norwalk, Iowa. Jack started with one only employee and two used ready mix trucks. Jack and his lone employee Dick Phipps, would take an order, load their trucks, come back and do it again. Since then the company and fleet of trucks have grown.

In 1992 Norwalk Ready Mix purchased Central Ready Mix in Indianola, Iowa. Jack’s son Todd moved out of a truck and began running Indianola Ready Mix. In 1995 the company added a third plant, DNI East in Des Moines and in 2000 DNI West opened in Grimes, Iowa. Today Norwalk Ready Mix operates out of four facilities and employs approximately 70 people.
