Searcy has a Lowes built on a foundation supplied by Razorback Concrete Company.
At midnight on August 2, 2002, Razorback Concrete provided 1,430 yards of ready-mix concrete for the new Lowes in Searcy. The floor covers approximately 120,000 square feet.
The pour, which was completed in just six hours, required the combined production of Razorback Concrete’s Searcy and Cabot ready-mix facilities, along with 37 mixer trucks assigned from three Razorback Concrete plants.
May Construction of Little Rock was the general contractor for the project and Lithko, Inc., was selected as the concrete contractor. Lithko, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, has offices in five other cities and is considered one of the leading concrete contractors in the country. Terry Oliver was Lithko’s project superintendent and came away extremely pleased with the outcome of the midnight pour in Searcy.
Razorback Concrete did a great job. It was a real pleasure doing business with them,” said Oliver. “I was just very impressed with the whole company.
Supervising the pour was Floyd Higdon of Apex Geoscience, a Tyler, Texas-based company. Higdon’s company oversees concrete quality control at major construction sites throughout the Midwest. He also had nothing but praise for Razorback Concrete’s effort.
They provide a very good product and extremely professional service,” said Higdon. “I wish I had them on every job we supervise. They were pouring about 270 cubic yards per hour at one point and they kept those trucks rolling in and out all night.
