At The Conco Companies, our vast experience has shown us that a vital part of doing a job right is having the proper equipment. This is why Conco has continued to make capital investments to expand and update our equipment and facilities.
We are proud to report that our fleet of concrete pumping equipment is one of the best in the industry and provides us with the capability and resources to handle the most difficult project requirements. Furthermore, our excellent reputation allows us to employ one of the most experienced teams. As one example of Conco’s willingness to solve problems and to own equipment that enable us to guarantee clients the best job, we recently collaborated with Schwing American to engineer a pump that would better serve the drilling industry.
As a result of our efforts, Conco was the first to purchase two new Schwing M36/31 concrete pumps specifically designed to address the problem of concrete booms that are not capable of lifting the heavy loads of long tremmie pipes loaded with concrete. Typically most pumps are rated with a lifting capacity of 300 to 400 lbs. and require cranes to assist with the lift of the boom to avoid the potential for catastrophic failure. Now the new Schwing tremmie pump has the capability to lift long tremmies into caissons without the need for a crane assist.
Furthermore, the roll and fold design of the boom does not interfere with typical drilling operations. The new pump has the capacity to lift up to 1,100 lbs. and up to 60’ tremmies of 4” 11Ga. safely. Another advantage to the new pumps is that they are CARB compliant and equipped with the latest emission standards. With a small footprint and the enhanced capability, the new concrete pumps solve many problems that our drilling customers had faced in the past.
The Conco Companies are a leading supplier of concrete services for the Western U.S. We got our start in the Bay Area in 1959 by offering clients the best value on a wide range of concrete services and products. Since that time, we have taken a leading role as one of the top concrete contractors in the region. Our offices serve California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Nevada.
