Penhall Celebrates 60 Years of Concrete Excellence

February 2017, Anaheim, CA – Penhall Company is proud to celebrate its 60th year in concrete services.  As the nation’s largest provider of concrete cutting, breaking, excavation, highway grinding and grooving, concrete scanning, utility locating , and seismic services, Penhall is a true success story that started with a single person and a single diamond saw.

Penhall Company began operations in 1957, when Leroy Penhall realized an opportunity during Anaheim, CA’s “Orange Grove Development Boom” of the late 1950’s.  He bought his first concrete saw: the gas powered diamond saw, which allowed Penhall to introduce rigorous concrete work with precision and speed

After several years of concrete cutting, drilling, breaking and removal, Penhall expanded into contractor and infrastructure services for highway renovation and modification work and structural demolition of any size and scope.  From the 2000’s to today, the company continues its growth by adding Penhall Technologies, a division focused on concrete scanning and private utility locating services throughout the United States from the west coast, east coast and Hawaii.  Additionally, the company has assembled a division solely dedicated to Seismic Retrofit Services with a full service engineering team.
