Over the next 45+ years, The Wells Group would erect 25 more plants throughout eastern Kentucky, southeastern Ohio, and southwestern West Virginia. Today, The Wells Group consists of 27 ready-mixed concrete plants and a fleet of over 100 mixers. Together, we serve most of eastern Kentucky and parts of Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia.  The Wells Group is still family owned with a third generation active in company management.

Quality is our Philosophy

The Wells Group LLC currently has four certified aggregate technicians working for the company. The philosophy of The Wells Group has always been to meet or exceed all quality expectations and specifications. We take every reasonable resource to achieve this end. We believe that our customers should not have any concerns about the quality being deficient or the supply of concrete being insufficient. Quality is the prime consideration of The Wells Group. We have a comprehensive quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) program.  We have a civil engineer on staff that wrote the quality control program and oversees its implementation. The QA/QC program includes daily testing of the aggregates and fresh concrete, regular strength testing of the hardened concrete, and periodic quality assurance reports from suppliers. All of our plant scales are certified semi-annually. All of the concrete mixers are Kentucky Department of Transportation certified.  Some of the concrete plants and mixers are also certified by West Virginia Department of Highways and Ohio Department of Transportation. The Wells Group has more American Concrete Institute Level I Certified Concrete Technicians and Kentucky Ready-Mixed Concrete Association Level II Certified Concrete Technicians than any company in the state of Kentucky!
