Pollock Redi Mix, LLC began with a single gravel pit located south of Summerland Golf Road near Ewing, Nebraska, in the 1940's. Sigismund Ebbensgaard began pumping the first gravel pit, which was later leased by Johnny Walker in 1947. During the flood of 1949 part of Summerland Golf Road was destroyed, which ended the gravel pit at that location. Mr. Walker then leased the current north pit land and started pumping gravel there. In 1951, Allan and Josephine Pollock took over the lease and continued to pump gravel for many years. They also purchased part of the land and constructed buildings on the property. After Florence Ebbensgaard passed away, the Pollocks purchased the remainder of the leased property.
In 1962, Mr. and Mrs. Pollock formed Pollock Redi-Mix, Inc. and the first concrete production plant began operations at the Ewing north pit location. The current south pit property was then purchased from Jesse Angus. In 1963, the Pollocks started pumping road gravel at the south pit and concrete gravel at the north pit. As the years went on, Pollock Redi-Mix, Inc. added two more concrete plants in Neligh and Elgin, all of which were managed by Richard Wright for many years.
In April of 2006, Rutjens Construction, Inc. purchased Pollock Redi-Mix, Inc., and changed the name to Pollock Redi Mix, LLC. Shortly after in 2009, the Tilden plant was added, completing the total of the four concrete plants in service today. During the past several years, Pollock Redi Mix, LLC has broadened their area of services and products and increased their workforce to provide for the growing demands of the customers they serve.
