Our quality on your schedule.

At Advance Ready Mix, exceptional service is our heritage – and the cornerstone of our continued success. In 1979, two brothers saw that industrial and construction clients needed quality ready mix delivered according to the client schedules – not the schedule of the ready-mix producer. Nights, weekends, holidays, demanding time frames, large challenges, small loads … whatever the need, Advance Ready Mix was founded to accommodate the schedule and requirements of the customer.

Through the years, this family-owned operation has become one of the largest commercial and residential suppliers in metro Louisville and Southern Indiana, and it is the preferred choice for service and quality. Six strategically located plants make Advance cost-competitive and able to meet even the largest challenges with cost-saving efficiency.


Small enough to listen. Big enough to deliver.

Advance Ready Mix was created in 1979 by two brothers looking for the service and quality they were unable to find anywhere in the market. Bob and Bill Abel struggled to find a producer in the market who could get them concrete during off hours and over holiday weekends. Frustrated by this, they decided to start Advance.

1979 was not the best year to start a concrete company — the 80s were financially challenging – but by the end of the decade they were able to buy their first new plant and trucks through their perseverance. By the mid-90s Advance was expanding again. In 1994 Advance set its first state-of-the-art central batch plant at its downtown location.

Need help figuring how much concrete your project will need? Advance Ready Mix is proud to offer a concrete calculator to help estimate how much concrete to order for your job. To calculate how much you will need, you first need to calculate the length, width and thickness of the area you’re trying to pour. This equation will work for slabs, walls, footers and any other concrete application.
