Delta Industries, Inc. and it's family of companies supply the mid-south region with quality ready-mix concrete and related products. Our Ready-Mix Concrete logo has been a symbol of quality concrete for over 65 years. From our beginning with 22 Army surplus trucks in 1945, to our current fleet of over 180 trucks, we have established ourselves as the quality ready mix concrete producer in our market areas.
Our customer base ranges from the do-it-yourselfer to residential and commercial contractors and the largest of industrial contractors. We have the assets, resources and expertise to supply any size job you can imagine. And, with over 30 locations, chances are we are just down the road.
With our recent investment in technology, we have made a quantum leap in our ability to service our customers. From tracking the location of our mixer trucks at all times to improved reliability in scheduling and order taking, we take customer service seriously. Our document imaging system allows for speedier invoicing and handling of customer inquiries.
These innovations would be worthless without a properly trained team of employees. In 2005, we created the "Delta Academy", a very successful in house training program to help our employees develop the skills needed to perform their job duties in an safe, efficient and consistent manner. Our delivery professional module is comprised of a one week classroom based training program followed by an additional week of on the road training that emphasizes all of the customer service aspects of their position.
At Delta Industries, Inc., we understand the importance of providing quality products for our customers. We have a fully staffed central QC Lab in the Jackson area with satellite labs at some of our other locations. Our staff is certified in multiple areas of ready mix expertise and led by our in house professional engineer. Each day the Technical Service personnel run a battery of tests on everything from incoming raw materials to the compressive strength of concrete all while monitoring the electronic batch results provided by our automated batch systems. These steps assure the customer of a consistent level of quality that he demands.
