ABOUT OREMUS

When I look at the construction business today, I marvel at everything that’s changed since I was 10 years old, riding along with my dad to job sites all over Chicagoland.

Jack Oremus had worked with his own father to build the nation’s largest family-owned, family-managed producer of ready-mixed concrete.

ABOUT OREMUS

When I look at the construction business today, I marvel at everything that’s changed since I was 10 years old, riding along with my dad to job sites all over Chicagoland.

Under the Oremus name, and later, as Prairie Material, we supplied the high-performance concrete mixes that built Chicago.

Watching my dad solve problems in the field was the best education I could possibly have received.

In fact, it’s the foundation of everything we do today. Because as much as things have changed, they’ve also stayed the same.

The core challenge is to get the right mix, accurately formulated and tested, to the job site on time, ready to go the minute the truck rolls in.

Twelve years ago I headed to Tucson to build a new family-owned concrete company. I started with one truck and a ton of ideas. Looking around, I could see the need for timely delivery, accurate communication and precise formulation of the right mix for each job.

I built a skilled team and together, we went after those problems. 

Today we have 2 Tucson area locations serving dozens of clients in metro Tucson who calls us first when they need top-quality concrete.

In 2018 I decided to bring the Oremus name back to Chicago. Our new team is made of people like me who grew up in the concrete business. When you call Oremus, you are drawing on a deep knowledge bank of professionals that care about your success.

Our service promise helps you keep your promises – delivering the durability, cost efficiency and on-time completion your customers need from you. We’re ready to partner with you to make your next job go smoothly and successfully.

Looking around, I could see the root causes of problems my future clients were struggling with. Late deliveries. Miscommunication between the yard and the supervisor. Mixes that don’t meet requirements.

A lifetime of learning taught me that doing one thing, and doing it exceptionally well, means better service for the customer – and success all around. That’s why concrete is our ONLY business.

Simply put, we know what you need and we’re ready to deliver.
