Who we are

Our History

Carmen Albanese, a pioneer and innovator in Santa Clara Valley construction, started Central Concrete in the early 1940s. As children, Bill and Tom Albanese worked at their father’s side and were prepared to take control of the firm when Carmen died in 1976. Together, the Albanese family used its knowledge and experience to make Central Concrete the company it is today – a company known for its expertise, customer service, high-quality, innovative products and genuine, honest relationships.
