Founded in 1953, Superior Concrete has been operated by the Wilt family since 1982. Lawrence Wilt started as a sales representative for the company in 1975, then within a few years became general manager. Despite the severe economic recession in the early ‘80s, under Wilt’s supervision the company flourished financially, and he was able to purchase the company in 1982. Wilt’s oldest son Tony joined the company in 1980 greasing the belts of the plant conveyors then worked his way through all aspects of the business to become president and general manager of Superior Concrete. Lawrence’s younger son, Keith, joined the company in 1992 and resides as vice president of operations.
