When R.S. Sweetman purchased C.A. Wagner Construction Co. in 1952, the company specialized in heavy/highway construction. Later, Sweetman Construction Co. diversified into other phases of road building and heavy construction projects in South Dakota and surrounding states.
Founded in 1930, Concrete Materials produced crushed rock from a small processing plant in west Sioux Falls. Sweetman Construction Co. purchased Concrete Materials in 1952.
Since its inception in the 1950s, the company has continued growing and expanding. Concrete Materials owns and operates aggregate and concrete production facilities in Chancellor, Yankton, and Sioux Falls. In 1992, Concrete Materials purchased Brandon Materials Co. and Ellis & Eastern Railroad Co., founded in 1987, which also operates in the Sioux Falls market area. Concrete Materials added various landscape block lines to their product list through their Hardscapes Outlet locations into the early 2000s.
