We are proud to report that a few years after The Conco Companies expanded our pumping services in the San Diego area; we have experienced a rapid growth in business. Moreover we attribute much of our San Diego success to the hiring of Eric Brogren, who brings to Conco more than 25 years of experience in the area’s construction industry.
Eric started his career as a pump operator and went on to spend the last several years in pumping sales for the San Diego market. Since bringing Eric on board in February of 2014, Conco has opened a permanent yard in Escondido that houses our fleet of concrete pumps and operators and we are expanding operations. With the addition of several new pumping contracts already on our schedule for 2017, we are increasing our resources to ensure optimal services to meet the needs of our customers.
One of our new projects includes the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project which will extend Trolley service from the Santa Fe Depot in Downtown San Diego to the University City community. The light rail project is being constructed by the Mid-Coast Transit Constructors (MCTC), which is a fully integrated joint venture of Stacy and Witbeck, Herzog and Skanska. The group was awarded a $921.8 million construction manager/general contractor contract from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG). Conco Pumping is providing concrete pumping services under the direction of Malcolm Drilling, Condon-Johnson and Skanska.
The Mid-Coast Trolley will serve major activity centers such as Old Town, the University of California San Diego (UCSD), and Westfield UTC and is intended to improve travel options for residents, commuters, and visitors to jobs, schools, and our medical and retail centers. The project is expected to be completed in 2021.
At The Conco Companies, we are one of the leading concrete contractors in the Western U.S. and offer a wide range of quality services and products. Our experience includes providing services for commercial, educational, parking and other construction development as well as public works projects. We serve California, Washington State, Oregon, Colorado and Nevada.
