As an industry leader in the production of flat concrete floors, Advanced Concrete Technology, Inc. will consistently provide the highest level of professionalism in service and quality to ensure maximum value and satisfaction to every client for all phases of concrete construction.
In 1981, Ed Textor founded Textor Construction, doing residential remodels and small commercial projects. By the end of the 1980’s, Textor Construction was starting to make its presence felt in the commercial market in Springfield and Southwest Missouri.
In the early 1990’s, at the height of the “Branson Boom” there were many large construction companies moving into Branson to capitalize on the thriving construction market in the area to meet the needs of the growing Branson entertainment industry. Most were construction management companies that did not have their own crews to perform such tasks as carpentry, steel erection, and concrete. Seeing the need for a large commercial concrete contractor, Ed began to focus his efforts on doing concrete work for other contractors. While that worked for the national companies that were working in the Branson market, local general contractors were reluctant to work with one of their competitors. In 1995, Advanced Concrete Technology, Inc. (ACT) began operations, with the intent of utilizing the latest in technology, equipment, and the most advanced techniques available to provide high quality concrete construction for local and national companies alike. ACT was the first contractor in Southwest Missouri to purchase laser screeds for concrete placement, the first to have ACI Certified concrete finishers, and quickly became leaders in the industry.
Over the years, ACT has developed a reputation for superior concrete construction – working on numerous hotels, hospitals, theaters, stadiums, and multi-story commercial buildings in Southwest Missouri and across the Midwest. The ACT finishing crew often pours for other concrete contractors and has been an industry leader in flatwork since the company’s inception.
Today, Ed’s sons, along with a complete team of industry leaders, continue that legacy, continuously striving to advance the best techniques and latest technologies to ensure the highest quality of work for every project and every customer, as well as in assisting competitors and smaller concrete contractors with solutions to increase the overall quality and performance throughout the industry.
