Our History

It was an idea that would transform the construction industry. Instead of supplying mortars and concrete as onsite mixes as was the case in the past, the American construction engineer visionary and entrepreneur Arthur C. Avril hit upon the idea in 1980 of manufacturing the ingredients as exact formulae for ready mixed drymortar mixes on an industrial scale.

In 1981, Arthur C. Avril established a new company to manufacture a single product – Non Shrink Grout – for use by the rapidly expanding national highway and road system. The product become known as KingKrete Grout in 1982 and 3 rectangular mortar bags placed over one another – was adopted as the company’s image.
