HISTORY

Las Animas Concrete began in 1964 as a small ready mix concrete supplier with only 3 trucks and few employees.  Mabel and Warren French successfully ran and expanded the company for many years before retiring in 1994.  After their retirement, they passed the company on to their son, Scott, who still owns and operates it.  Las Animas Concrete is family owned and operated with Scott, his wife and their four children working together.  We expanded to Marina in 2005 and are happy to serve the Monterey Bay area as well. From a backyard patio to a 500 yard commercial foundation, Las Animas Concrete takes pride in a job well done.  We value honesty, integrity and are proud of our knowledgeable and helpful staff.   We strive to produce strong and consistent concrete and will help you through whatever project you are working on.

CULTURE

LAC prides in maintaining a family-oriented culture. Staff are considered an extension to the FRENCH family members. Hence, the overall feeling and day-to-day dealings in the company are based on a “communal” approach where extreme formality is an unwanted overhead. We understand that each member of the company-family is entrusted with a primary role based on their knowledge and experience; sometimes they also assist across the organization to complete a different function.
