Why work with us?

 

For the last 70 years, Barkman has continued to fulfill our mission of creating concrete solutions to better serve our customers and move the industry forward. We are proud to deliver the following advantages as we maintain our innovative edge in the industry.

We make a solid case.

Rigorous Product Testing

Comprehensive testing in our in-house laboratory enables us to
meet or even exceed ASTM/CSA required standards. This includes
freeze-thaw testing (stress/weather resistant tests) and solar
reflectance index, among other tests. These data points and
corresponding results also allow us to react and respond to any
customer inquiry concerning our products.

Research and Development

Our research and development team is committed to ensuring that all our products have been developed and engineered to provide the ultimate in durability, even in the harshest of climatic conditions. Whether it be creating a custom mix design to meet the needs of our customers or ensuring that we are up to date with all our manufacturing processes, our R&D team plays a vital role in all aspects of support to both Barkman’s sales and operations teams.
