Using precast concrete they manufacture over $1,300,000 in products such as septic tanks, storm shelters, stock tanks, feed bunks, parking chocks, a variety of concrete pads, and custom tanks and vaults for residential and commercial customers. The company has the capability to set products weighing up to 24,000 lbs. The custom concrete mix (5000 minimum psi) is produced using a volumetric mixer. Much of the residential septic business is from homeowner’s need to refurbish their septic systems to adhere to new code according to Iowa Chapter 69 which requires updating a septic system prior to the sale of a home. It is estimated only 25% of the systems in Iowa now meet the Iowa code, leaving much room for continued sales of septic products.
Annually there are over 500 customers with the average purchase per customer being $2,500. Currently General Contractors and Real Estate Agents are a predominant lead source since homes that were built before 1991 are required to have an updated septic system prior to selling. An opportunity for growth is to pursue a referral network with bankers as well, since they aren’t able to loan on these older houses until the septic systems are in compliance with the new regulation. There is a laboring work force of 7 employees in place that the owner oversees while his wife handles all of the billing.
Strong established business partnerships and excellent reputation in over one quarter of the state, combined with high demand for concrete products give this business a competitive edge within its industry. Steady profit margin of 33% along with consistent gross sales reflect the strength of the business as an investment for a new owner to achieve growth and profitability.
