The Beginning

   JDE Concrete Inc. of Grand Rapids Michigan, began business in 1997 by Joel Eerdmans. JDE Concrete began serving the West Michigan area primarily as a residential concrete contractor. Whether it was concrete flatwork, walls, footings, driveways, sidewalks, or patios, JDE's work ethic and quality project performance was fast becoming noticed in the Grand Rapids area. JDE Concrete soon became the areas fastest growing concrete contractor with an aggressive push to expand into every area of concrete construction such as, decorative and non- decorative retaining walls (residential or commercial), stamped concrete, agricultural flat work, and concrete coloring. All types of concrete construction was being done.

Concrete Project Experience

   Our valuable JDE flatwork foreman have amassed a combined sixty years of concrete experience, and have backgrounds in and around concrete construction for most of their careers. In addition to this, JDE wall crew foreman have compiled more than ninety years constructing and pouring some of the most intricate foundations and walls during some of the worst winters on record. During those valuable decades with JDE, our gifted foreman have trained numerous employees who are with JDE to this day using the same insights and knowledge they learned on the job. That depth gives JDE a decided advantage.

   With the inevitable busyness that comes with excellent job performance, JDE employees work late into the night most days to finish tough projects all over Michigan. Concrete construction can be one of the most physically demanding jobs anywhere. JDE crews have the physical and mental strength that is needed to get your job finished professionally and on schedule. The bottom line is .... performance.

Recent Changes

   JDE has added another new Schwing 36 meter pump boom mounted on a Kenworth concrete pump truck to its concrete pumping fleet to increase the concrete pumping dramatically.
This type of heavy equipment was needed to give our crews and customers great quality as well as the quickest project completion that can be given.
