Dickinson Ready Mix in Dickinson, North Dakota, recently announced its purchase of Bowman Ready Mix in Bowman, North Dakota. Dickinson Ready Mix (DRM) assumed ownership and took over operations starting on March 1, 2020.  

Scott Olin, President and General Manager at DRM, states, “We truly look forward to being part of the Bowman community and serving the region.”

At the time of the purchase, Bowman Ready Mix was a third generation ready mix concrete operation. It was started by Bob Ridl and Pete Cymbaluk in 1958, and is currently managed by James (Jim) Ridl and Josh Ridl.  

Of the change in ownership, Ridl family shares, “After 62 years, it was time. We can’t express enough how much our community means to us. Thank you all for your past business. Dickinson will continue to serve our community for all your concrete needs. They are very good people.”

“We’re ecstatic to have the opportunity to work in Bowman,” shares Ben Olin, Technical Services Director and Satellite Plant Manager at DRM.  

Ben Olin continues, “Jim and Josh are very easy to work with and are so knowledgeable. We’re really pleased to have them continue being a part of the DRM team at the Bowman location – even though there was a change of ownership, there won’t be a change in the face of the Bowman team.”

DRM’s purchase of Bowman Ready Mix extends its service area to include eight counties in southwestern North Dakota, while also serving eastern Montana and northern South Dakota.
