Foundations Plus: Laying the Foundation

By: Foundations Plus, Utica, Oh

The fall of 2003 marked the completion of a quarter century of service by our firm, Foundations Plus, owned and operated by Mahlon D. Eash and family. We began the business in 1978 to supplement the dairy farming income needed to support our family of ten children. In those early days, we poured a wall or two per week… usually for a neighbor, family member, or local contractor.

We developed a special interest in pouring retaining walls and residential foundation walls. From the beginning, Mr. Eash and his sons always made it a practice to personally oversee the footer and wall work on each job to insure that our walls were straight and square. Quality and customer satisfaction are hallmarks of our poured walls.

Year by year, our business slowly but steadily increases. All of this increase grows out of referrals and word-of-mouth recommendations from those for whom we have word. Today, we pour retaining and foundation walls for contractors, friends, and family members in a radius that spans about 60 miles from our office in Utica, Ohio.

Over the past 26 years, there have been many changes in our local area, the nation, and around the world. But some things haven’t changed. Mahlon Eash Sr., now 77 years of age, and his sons still go out each day to oversee the footer and wall work at our jobsites, and on most days they still put in nearly 12 hours. From sun up ‘til sundown, wherever a Foundations Plus wall is being poured, a family member is present to oversee the work and insure that quality and customer satisfaction continue to be the hallmarks of our poured walls.

Our company motto is taken from I Corinthians 3:12: “For other foundation can no man lay that that is laid which is Jesus Christ.” As He is the strong and sure foundation for faith which lead life eternal, so we strive to reward the confidence you place in us by building walls that will stand secure for this present age.

We look forward to the future.
