Bontrager Concrete Specialties, Inc Named Contractor of the Year

Bontrager Concrete Specialties, Inc. of Nappanee, Indiana was named Contractor of the Year by the Concrete Foundations Association (CFA) based in Mount Vernon, Iowa. The Contractor of the Year Award recognizes an individual or company who exemplifies the ideals, goals, and standards of the CFA, a voluntary nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of the poured wall industry.

The award credits the Bontragers’ contributions to the industry through example, leadership, and performance. Bontrager Concrete Specialties, Inc. has been a member of the CFA for 15 years, and regularly submits projects in the Basement of the Year contest, which works to improve the quality of concrete walls and foundations as well as educate the industry about the accomplishments of using cast-in-place concrete construction.

The Bontragers are also leaders in their area. Bontrager Concrete specializes in foundations, flatwork, and waterproofing. Their family, starting with their father, has provided services to builders of the Nappanee and surrounding areas since 1965. Duane and Kevin officially took over the business in 1986, and their projects currently average 2,300 –2,500 square feet with some commercial work. Duane prides their company in giving that personal contact needed for a successful project.

“No matter how big or small, Kevin and I talk with the client and visit the jobsite,” stated Duane. “We are more concerned with quality than quantity.”

A formal award presentation will be made at the Awards Banquet Luncheon during the CFA’s Annual Summer Meeting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco, California. For more information about the CFA, please visit or contact Talia Nelson at 866-CFA-WALL (232-9255).
