In 1938, Carey Loven Sr. began a saw mill business to saw and plane timber harvested from the mountains of western North Carolina. C.L. Loven Lumber Company sold these timber products along with lumber and building materials.

Working with his four sons; Joe, Carey Jr., Jimmy, and Bobby; Carey turned Loven Lumber into a household name in the high country providing quality building materials for countless homes and businesses.

In 1961, the family added ready mix concrete to their supply list and Loven Ready Mix was born. The first concrete plant was erected in Pineola, North Carolina as brothers Joe, Jimmy, and Bobby entered into a new supply arena. The success of this concrete operation led to growth into surrounding Boone, NC, Asheville, NC and Eastern Tennessee. Portable plants were set up from Clinton, TN to Wilmington, NC, to service the heavy construction of bridges and roadways.
