Delta Industries Story
The evolution of a market leader
Our story begins in 1945, when Jackson Ready Mix began concrete manufacturing operations with a fleet of 22 army surplus trucks and goal to play a primary role in facilitating the post-war growth of Jackson, MS. We began at the Jackson location on Woodrow Wilson Avenue on which we continue to operate today. We continue to remember our roots as a deep south company, even as our footprint has grown over the years.
The company grew steadily through the 50s and 60s, adding a number of production facilities to serve a growing base of commercial and residential customers. The company also operated separate divisions that were in the concrete block, aggregates, and catfish farming businesses. Through a series of acquisitions in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the company expanded operations throughout Mississippi and into the neighboring states of Louisiana and Arkansas. In 2005, the company expanded eastward into Alabama.
Today, with all operations consolidated under the Delta Industries, Inc. umbrella, our company is among the most trusted construction materials suppliers in our four-state region. With a solid leadership team representing almost 200 years of business and ready mix experience, Delta continues to build upon the foundation that was laid in 1945, working every day to fulfill our original mission of being the very best concrete company in the markets we serve.
A bold, new look for Delta Industries, Inc.
Beginning in June, 2018, you will notice something bold, new and different. We recently introduced a new logo with a fresh, contemporary look and color scheme.
Why change? Simple. As we continue to advance our company, innovate our products, and improve our service, we felt it was time for our look to evolve as well. The new logo better represents the agile, technology-savvy company we are today. It also more makes use more recognizable to our customers, as you will begin the see the same look for Delta Industries in each of our markets. You will notice that the new logo keeps elements of the old design to give a nod to our company’s history. The three bars of the new logo combine to form an implied triangle, maintaining a structural element of the original triangular Delta Industries mark. The triangle, “Delta” in greek, indicates our advancements as we change and innovate as our whole industry moves forward. The new logo also incorporates the familiar red of the “Ready-Mix” logo, which will continue to appear on our trucks and in other applications.
Although our look is new, our Ready-Mix product, our people and their commitment to superior service will continue. So, while you may see a different look at the job site, you can count on receiving the same high-quality products and responsiveness that our customers have relied on since 1945.
