Superior Concrete

Superior Quality Concrete because of Superior Materials

All of V Works Mobile Mix Concrete aggregate is shipped over the mountains from the Willamette Valley to give the customer the best possible concrete product.

Compared to sand & rock harvested from Central OR, V Works Mobile Mix Concrete uses higher quality aggregate:

V Works Mobile Mix Concrete Rock is harder.

  • Willamette Valley rock is harder than Central Oregon rock. This results in V Works Mobile Mix Concrete being stronger and more durable.
  • Our competitors use softer Central Oregon rock that is not as strong or as durable
  • Central Oregon rock is more porous resulting in rock which absorbs more water.

V Works Mobile Mix Concrete uses smooth river rock that pumps and finishes well.

  • Some of V Works Mobile Mix Concrete competitors use crushed, fractured, and softer Central Oregon rock that doesn’t finish or pump well.
  • V Works Mobile Mix Concrete Rock has a lower water absorption than the rock found in Central Oregon.
  • This results in improved freeze/thaw resistance for the V Works Mobile Mix Concrete, making the concrete more durable and last longer. Central Oregon has many freeze thaw cycles. The lower water absorption also makes the concrete finish and pump easier and better.
  • Our competitors use Central Oregon rock that has a higher water absorption, making the concrete fail quicker from repeated freeze/thaw cycles. This property also negatively affects how their concrete pumps and finishes.


V Works Mobile Mix Concrete Rock is clean and has no coating of clay.

Our competitors use Central Oregon aggregate that frequently has a fine coating of clay. The customer does not want clay in their concrete. Any clay in the concrete makes the concrete sticky, so it does not pump or finish well and the clay negatively affects the strength and durability of the concrete.

  • V Works Mobile Mix Concrete Rock has no problems with Alkali Silica Reaction.
  • Our competitors use Central Oregon aggregate that sometimes has problems with ASR, making the concrete fail prematurely.


V Works Mobile Mix Concrete Sand is smooth and river washed.

  • Willamette Valley river washed sand is geologically “older” than Central Oregon sand so the sand particles and edges are smooth. The resultant concrete pumps and finishes easier and better.
  • Our competitors use Central Oregon volcanic sand that is geologically “younger.” Young volcanic sand is rough & angular and as a result, does not finish or pump well.

V Works Mobile Mix Concrete Sand has been run through a sand classifier.

  • All the different sand size particles have a constant, reliable, and reproducible percentage in the V Works Mobile Mix Concrete mix design. With V Works Mobile Mix Concrete, customers get what they want, a reliable and reproducible concrete product.
  • Most of our competitor’s concrete sand has not been classified. This can result in significant batch variations and inconsistent mixes, negatively affecting the concretes pumpability, finishability, behavior, and long term properties.
  • V Works Mobile Mix Concrete is the only concrete producer in Central Oregon and we haul our sand/rock from the Willamette Valley to provide the customer with the best quality concrete product available.
  • This results in significant increased overhead costs for V Works Mobile Mix Concrete but results in a better quality, stronger, and more durable concrete product that pumps and finishes better.

Our concrete yardage costs are higher than our competitors but with V Works Mobile Mix Concrete, the customer only pays for the concrete they use (typical savings on average are 10% savings on total yardage charges compared to a typical drum truck concrete order. This can result in tremendous dollars saved, even for a one truck pour) and V Works Mobile Mix Concrete aggregate is trucked from the Willamette Valley, providing the best quality concrete product in Central Oregon.

“I am proud of V Works Mobile Mix Concrete. I want to produce the best quality concrete in Central Oregon. Concrete that is strong, durable, resistant to freeze/thaw, and pumps and finishes well.”

100% cement

  • V Works Mobile Mix Concrete uses 100% cement. No fillers are used. V Works Mobile Mix Concrete does not cut their cement mix with slag or fly ash like the competitors. A 100% cement mixture is more expensive than a “cut” mix consisting of a cement:slag or cement:slag blend. We only use 100% cement.

  • Our competitors cut their cement with slag or fly ash. Sometimes, the addition of slag or fly ash to the concrete mix can be beneficial. If needed or desired, V Works Mobile Mix Concrete can use a cement:slag or cement:fly ash blend for your mix design.



In House Concrete testing Program

“As a physician and scientist, I believe in testing, experimentation, validation, and a sound QA/QC program. V Works Mobile Mix Concrete has its own concrete testing break machine to provide internal QA/QC. V Works Mobile Mix Concrete has learned a tremendous amount the past couple of years. It has taken some time, but I am now very proud of our high quality, reliable, reproducible, strong and durable concrete mix designs, using 100% cement and best aggregate, all delivered from the Willamette Valley, and coupled with great customer service.”
