Prairie Material owns and operates a network of ready-mix concrete plants and aggregate facilities in four Midwest states Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin. We offer a full line of ready-mixed, decorative and high performance concrete, as well as aggregate products.

Founded in 1948 by the Oremus family, Prairie Material has grown along with the communities we've helped build. From our very first yards in Bridgeview, Illinois, we've expanded steadily to become the region's foremost provider of performance concrete, ready mix and aggregate construction materials.

Thoughtful acquisitions of other respected family businesses in Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and downstate Illinois have allowed us to grow without losing our focus on customer satisfaction and the needs of local stakeholders. Today, Prairie employs 1,800 professionals in nearly 100 locations in the four state area. Prairie's materials form the core of major structures throughout the Midwest, including Trump Tower Chicago, the Milwaukee Art Museum addition and the Indianapolis International Airport.

Prairie is dedicated to continual improvement and innovation in mix design and concrete qualities to facilitate today's fast track construction cycles. We provide owners and builders with the modern concrete that performs to meet both the engineering specs and the constructor's needs for easy placement, excellent finishing characteristics and rapid strength gain.

Though the business of construction has changed dramatically, our promise to customers remains constant Prairie delivers quality materials with exceptional service at the best possible price.
