OUR HISTORY

The year was 1953 and William Brown Thompson and his partner Harvey Woodruff Bamman, along with three employees and a used concrete mixer, started producing masonry products on 1½ acres in Fort Myers, Florida. Now, over 50 years later and occupying 50 acres of land, Cement Industries is still here, helping build dreams for others and the community.

Our product line may have changed through the years but our core values have not: provide our customers with excellent service and lasting quality. Today these values are evident in our extensive line of precast/prestressed concrete products. Our numerous and varied projects stand tall throughout the state of Florida and we take pride in the thousands of structures we have produced and erected for our broad client base.

The Germain Arena in Lee County, the Bank Atlantic Center in Broward County, American Airlines Arena in Miami and the Ritz Carlton parking deck in Collier County are just a few of the many projects we have completed. In addition to arenas, parking decks and sound walls, we are licensed to produce Spancrete® hollowcore slabs for use in condominiums, homes, schools, hospitals and office buildings. From our beginning in the industry in 1953 until now, we are proud to say that Cement Industries has shared in the growth of our community and the state of Florida.

Cement Industries is certified as an MBE by the state of Florida. Our manufacturing facility is certified by the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and our installation crews by PCI. The American Welders Association (AWA) certifies our welders and the Construction Material and Engineering Council (CMEC) certifies our Quality Assurance Laboratory. This recognition is crucial to Cement Industries. It sets the level of standards for our employees and for the entire building community, while demonstrating to our customers our dedication to building a better tomorrow.

Second-generation Thompsons are now at the helm, sharing almost 100 years of combined experience in the precast industry. Many of our longtime employees have been with the company since the 1960's and 1970's and have seen their own second and third generation join the company. This core group of experienced leaders is dedicated to providing quality products to the entire building community. After all, we've been building for tomorrow since 1953.
