Rolling Mix: Our History

1955

Upon immigrating to Canada from Italy and growing tired of working for existing concrete companies in 1955, brothers’ Guido and Hector DiStefano decided to take matters into their own hands and start their own company. Since neither had an education past middle school, their plan seemed impossible at best. The challenges they were certain to face did not alter their plans or cause their enthusiasm or dedication to falter. When they first began ideas were abundant but money was scarce. The business was based out of their garage in Bridgeland (Little Italy), with a fleet consisting of only one wheelbarrow, one finishing machine, and one pickup truck.

Now over 60 years later, the company has an operation employing more than 300 people with over 100 trucks, many pumps, and crews for prepping, placing, pumping, and finishing. As well as having expanded to three locations across Canada.

In 1964 the first expansion in Prince George British Columbia was up and running with new partner Joe Paolucci. The Edmonton location opened in 1994 adding one more partner, Rod Taverner.

2016 saw the completion of a major expansion in Edmonton and a new state of the art concrete batching plant servicing Calgary and the surrounding area.

 

Growing Rollingmix

Although there are few traces of the tiny Bridgeland company from which Rollingmix grew, the strong family values, qualities, and work ethic passed on from generation to generation has held strong. The perfectionist attitude so ingrained in the family was the base for the DiStefano’s strong work philosophy and commitment to providing top-quality product and service, setting them apart from their competition and earning the company a strong reputation in the commercial and residential building industry.

Influenced by humble beginnings and a work ethic driven by strong family values of commitment and dedication to quality, Rollingmix will never forget that it was the small guys who got them where they are today.

“I’m writing this in regards to the work your company completed at my home here in Glendale. From the start to finish the job went like clock-work. The crews were not only on time but friendly and helpful with suggestions on how to make it better. One crew, in particular, that was headed by Greg did excellent work and from what I can see, was the best in Calgary. But really all the Rolling Mix crew were great people and you should be proud of all of them. My wife, I know enjoyed their company and getting coffee with them was something we loved to do for them. I will be recommending  Rolling Mix to anyone I know or who asks us." - Colin and Linda Campbell- homeowners

“We have recently employed Rolling Mix Concrete to provide a slab for our new garage.  The crew arrived on time and was efficient, cooperative, and well organized.  The job was completed in a very short time.  We would recommend this firm for any such project.
Thanks for your efforts... even the carpenters are happy with the concrete.” - Brian Willdig- homeowner

“I am so appreciative of the work that Rolling Mix recently did to my sidewalk. It was a tiny nuance type job and the guys at Rolling Mix really went above and beyond to cater to my needs and help me. From Dan in estimating to Mike supervising and all the other members of the Rolling Mix team who came to my house, I am so appreciative of the extra effort that everyone gave to the project.
A sidewalk may seem like a little thing, but I had been suffering with a tiny original sidewalk for many years, and it is great to see one of the finishing touches done to my home. Thanks again to everyone involved. It looks brilliant!” - Krista- homeowner
