Concrete Solutions Parade Floats Were a Success

This past weekend marked the 225th Anniversary of Gardner, Massachusetts, hometown to Concrete Solutions. To celebrate, Gardner hosted a grand parade with 7 Divisions of walkers, marching bands, and floats. To represent the past, present, and future success of the company, Concrete Solutions and their parent company, A. Jandris and Sons rolled down the street with two vehicles. The A. Jandris company began in 1920 as Adolf Jandris’s demolition, salvage, and construction business, which quickly grew and allowed them to build their first concrete block production plant. In 2005, they were able to add a separate retail and contractor yard, Concrete Solutions. To show this history line, one of our floats represented the present and one of them, the past. The first of our vehicles was a large float representing our products in action, featuring a backyard bash scene with a talented musician engaging the crowd. This float represented the newest addition to A. Jandris and Sons, Concrete Solutions. The second vehicle followed the float. This was an antique 1929 Mack AB Model truck and is one of Jandris\’s original trucks. Our floats got great response from the crowd. Thanks to all who came out to support us and the rest of the participants in the 225th Anniversary Parade. It was a beautiful day and a very successful event!
