Chaney Enterprises has closed on Maryland ready mixed producer PCS Concrete, welcoming founder Tom Pittman to its executive management team as maintenance operations officer, and naming Sharon Carr Pittman as technical service project manager. PCS has a payroll of 40 and operates in Annapolis Junction (headquarters), Westport (Southern Baltimore City), Owings, Waldorf, and Sparrows Point (Baltimore County).
The Chaney, Pittman and Carr families, along with their companies, have over 100 years combined in ready mixed concrete. Pittman entered the industry in 1990 and started PCS Concrete in 2008. In his new role, he will have complete responsibility for all of Chaney Enterprises’ concrete and aggregate fleet and plant maintenance. Carr Pittman, whose family has operated a concrete business in Maryland since 1964, was instrumental in PCS success and growth.
“For years we’ve been supplying PCS Concrete with natural sand via barge and truck,” says Chaney Enterprises President Francis “Hall” Chaney, III. “PCS has been an excellent customer and is now a great addition to [our company]. Having worked at family-owned PCS Concrete, our newest employees exhibit the same grit and culture that we do.”
The acquisition continues a growth plan that has most recently seen Chaney Enterprises establish BuilderUp, a building and services division formed in 2018 by the merger of acquired and legacy businesses, Dunkirk Supply and The Concrete Store, respectively. In 2017, Chaney purchased a Bealton, Va., ready mixed concrete plant, and built a second operation in Gainesville to provide increased production capabilities for a growing Virginia customer base.
