Brian & Chris Osterhaven

Meet Brian and Chris Osterhaven from Alto, Michigan. They are a family of  6, with 4 children and 3 dogs, who love the outdoors and all things Michigan Recreation.

Chris grew up in Ohio as a small town farm girl. She would always help her dad around the farm, whether it was driving grain trucks to the elevator or plowing the fields; it didn’t matter. Because of this, Chris quickly learned how to navigate large machinery. 

Brian grew up in Caledonia with 3 younger brothers and small business owners as parents. It’s no surprise that he took on owning a business too. Brian studied diesel mechanics at (previously known as) North Western Auto Diesel College and worked as a diesel mechanic for 7 years, after he graduated. One summer he started helping a friend with concrete and the rest is history! 

Brian and Chris met through mutual friends in college and soon got married after her 24th birthday. For a while, Chris worked as an optician, until they had their first child, Ashley and she became a stay-at-home mother. It wasn’t until 2005, when they decided to open their own concrete business.

Chris has always been very supportive and helpful to Brian. Chris now acts as the office manager. Keeping the business side of things organized and leading the charge for bids and sales. Now, this husband and wife duo both work together and experience life together, all while being active in the church and the community.
