Building on Success

Lithko was formed in the early 1990s by a group of commercial concrete construction professionals who had grown weary of the constant travel their jobs required, and the strain that travel put on their families. Seeing an opportunity to create a different kind of organization, they formed a commercial concrete contracting company focused on working close to home.

To support growth without the excessive travel, they targeted their work to middle-market projects and focused on opening additional locations. They named these semi-autonomous branches BURGS (Business Unit Running Great). Aggressively recruiting from the industry and universities, the company hired professionals with the drive to become leaders, oversaw their training, and offered them unique opportunities for career growth through the BURG structure.

In the early 2000s, the company expanded their leadership team and further developed the business model. Today, Lithko operates more than 15 BURGS within the US, with plans to open many more.
