“Our entire family has always been in the rock business, starting with my great-grandfather, who was one of the original Lambert Brothers,” relates Kirk Lambert, owner of Lambcon Ready-Mix. “They were probably the largest quarrying outfit in the country when they sold to Vulcan Materials in 1958. That was when my grandfather, George Lambert, made the bold decision to crush on his own.”
Following in his father’s footsteps, Kirk’s father, Steve Lambert left his post at a concrete plant in Dayton, Tennessee and set out to make his dream of hauling concrete from Chattanooga to Knoxville a reality. With just three trucks, Steve started Bradley Concrete in Cleveland, Tennessee in 1978. He ran the company on his own until his two sons Kirk and Adam graduated from college and were ready to become part of the family business.
