How are we celebrating? Nothing fancy – just providing our clients with quality, integrity, and service, which have been our core values since our founding in 1926.
We’ve come a long way since our founding. The first product sold by W. R. Meadows was Asphalt Expansion Joint, a product we still sell today. The company first started with manufacturing these expansion joint products, but we gradually increased our line to including curing and sealing compounds, building envelope products, and concrete restoration. Pretty much, if you’re involved with concrete construction, we have a product for you.
We’re also proud to have expanded our company into several locations across the U.S. and Canada. We have locations that span from Pomona, California, to Milton, Ontario, Canada, to Cartersville, Georgia. We’re also happy to be able to sell our product beyond North America, to such locations as Hungary, China, and Israel. These places are a way long off from our humble beginnings in Elgin, Illinois.
And W. R. Meadows is still privately owned and operated by the Meadows family. The company is now into its fourth generation of ownership, and we’re happy to stick with our core values that our founders, Bob and Edna Meadows, instilled.
We’ve come a long way, and we’ve grown, but we’re still eager to learn more and help lead the construction industry. We’d like to thank our distributors, contractors, architects, and building owners who have sold, used, and specified our products. Our 85 years wouldn’t have happened without your support.
So this 85th anniversary party is a low-key affair, but we’re happy to have shared it with you. As always, we thank you for your support.
