By the grit of his teeth.
Baker Concrete Construction began in a small house in Oxford, Ohio, in 1968 – built by the hands of Dan Baker, with grit and the fundamental belief in doing the right thing. As a young man, Dan Baker learned the cement finisher’s trade from his grandfather, Elmer Baker.
From the beginning, Dan grounded the business in the values he learned from his grandfather: excellence, hard work, service and integrity. Values that continue to guide and inspire the company today.
A Half-century’s Experience
