About Us


Tri City Readymix has been serving the Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and Cambridge area since 1986. Founded by Harold Esbaugh, Tri City was built on his experience of over 45 years in the construction and readymix business. It began with a simple philosophy – to produce high quality concrete and deliver it quick and efficiently to its customers. Expanding quietly over the years, Tri City Readymix is now operating at two locations, supplying concrete in commercial, residential and agricultural markets. In December 2017, Tri City joined forces with Miller Paving Limited.  Miller purchased all properties and equipment of Tri City Readymix and Tri City Materials.  Tri City is now better positioned to compete in the construction and material supply industry in the Kitchener Waterloo marketplaces.  We are now able to pursue a wider array of opportunities as projects become more complex and demanding.

After more then 25 years with the organization, Ron Esbaugh retired in May of 2021. Rick Esbaugh remains with the Tri City Materials business in an Advisory role. We thank Rick and Ron for the countless valuable contributions and leadership the two provided over the years. With the TCR Team, Ron Esbaugh leaves behind a legacy that strives to maintain the same level of success he achieved.

The Tri City team is committed to producing concrete that exceeds all standards of strength and uniformity, thus earning a reputation for quality, value, dependability and consistency. Along with its superior concrete, Tri City Readymix extends the high standard of quality to the appearance and upkeep of its plants and equipment. Investing steadily over the years in the latest production equipment and a modern transport fleet, Tri City takes pride in achieving and maintaining clean, attractive and efficient equipment.


As a readymix leader in the Tri City area, Tri City Readymix is constantly looking for new qualified personnel to join its team. Tri City strives to provide the highest quality product and the highest level of customer service every day.
