In 1941, Jacob Kats Sr. established Kats House Movers, which in time, became a dual service company offering house moving and concrete work. The services Jacob Sr. offered complemented each other and as the demand for house moving lessened, the company evolved to become the first full-service concrete company in Palos Hills, Illinois.
Years Later, returning home from the Korean War, three of Jacob's oldest sons; Jake Jr., Hank Sr., and Clarence began working with him in both farming and concrete. They eventually became 2nd generation owners of the company, which was renamed and incorporated in 1959 as Kats & Sons, Inc.
Throughout the 60's and 70's, Kats & Sons, Inc. worked mostly residential jobs, such as foundation repairs, and crawlspace to basement conversions (which are becoming popular again today).
The company expanded to work more commercial projects in the 80's, as well as bringing in the current, 3rd generation of Kats owners; Dave, Jack, Hank Jr., and Rich. Since, the family-owned company has worked on everything concrete, from foundations to additions on churches, medical buildings, parks, railroads, and more.
Kats & Sons, Inc. is a proven and trustworthy company that knows concrete. They are experts, not only because its what they do, but because it's in their blood just as it has been for over 70 years.
