Founded in 1974, A-Core Concrete Cutting, Inc. got its start from humble beginnings as the entire operation was ran from the back of a yellow station wagon, known as “Old Yeller”. Rooted in integrity, hard work, honesty, and a determination to succeed, the original founders of A-Core relied on superior customer service and a dedication to quality work. This steadfast commitment helped the company to earn a strong and well-respected reputation in the concrete cutting and specialty contractor industries. A-Core honors that ambition and dedication has improved the quality of life for countless individuals. We greatly value that for decades our team has demonstrated the only limits on achievement are those that we place on ourselves. Our organization is built to respond to any of our customers’ needs, providing vast flexible solutions and outstanding value to owners and contractors no matter what industry or region. This is accomplished by constantly providing exceptional expertise, technical knowledge, and tailoring our services to any type of project.

A-Core continues to embrace and invest in emerging technologies that add value to our clients’ projects. Although we possess the resources and capabilities to take on any size contract, we remain deeply rooted in our commitment that there is no job too specialized or too small for our personalized attention. It is our closely held value that every project deserves our utmost attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction.
