Norwalk 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, complete the project, come back, and do it all again. Since then, the company and its 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 assumed management of 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.
Norwalk Ready Mix supplies concrete to the best contractors in Central Iowa and the surrounding areas.
