continued to diversify. Over the years, three generations of
Fardens have led the company.
the company is led by Co-Owners, President Steve Farden and
Vice President Todd Farden. Their father, Kenny, serves on
the Board of Directors as well as their Uncle Russ.

“Grandpa started out moving houses from farms into town,” he
continued. “Those houses needed footings, so setting up a
ready-mix plant and producing concrete was next on the list.
Then Russ bought a backhoe and began digging basements and
putting in utility lines. Eventually we moved into site
construction for oil fields when oil was discovered in the
1950’s. We’re still doing all those services, in addition to
relatively new areas such as moving drilling rigs and
producing aggregate materials for ourselves and a variety of
customers in the area. We even do snow removal in the oil
fields during the winter.”
