Company History

In 1924, Olin Clement Jones founded a small concrete placing firm in Berkeley, California. Olin specialized in transporting and placing a new product, later to be known as ready-mixed concrete. 20 years later, Olin was joined by his sons, Harold and Robert, and the company continued to prosper and grow. Under Harold’s leadership the company expanded into new work disciplines and increased its geographical reach. Over the next few decades the company transitioned into concrete structures, grading, paving and underground utilities. By the 1960’s, O.C. Jones was recognized as one of the most respected contractors in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
