About Us

Since 1935, River Bend Sand & Gravel has been a member of the Salem community. We are committed to providing top-quality building materials and to being as helpful as possible to every customer, every day, at every level of our organization. Safety comes first, and River Bend has a variety of formal safety programs. They include our safe delivery program, called JOBSITE, which helps protect our drivers and our customers. See our JOBSITE summary. Oldcastle Materials and its parent company CRH also are committed to safety in the workplace. Click here for CRH's 11 fundamentals of fatality elimination.

River Bend offers more than 100 different kinds of concrete, with a computer-controlled liquid color system to tint concrete red, buff, dark gray, and many other shades. We provide asphalt, sand, gravel, and a variety of crushed rock. We have strategic relationships with some of the area’s best craftsmen and women. See our product list here.

Our quality is protected by an ODOT-accredited quality control department. We’re a member of ODOT’s commercial source program, which sets standards for building products and rigidly monitors consistency. We have the ability to create innovative concrete and asphalt mix designs and we relentlessly test our materials for quality. See our lab certification. Our concrete plant is certified by the National Ready Mix Concrete Association. Click here to see our concrete plant certification.

River Bend believes in sustainability. We use recycled fly ash, a by-product of coal fired power plants, in our concrete. We provide fiber reinforcement made from recycled plastics, to battle cracks in concrete. We make new asphalt with recycled asphalt and with recycled roofing shingles.

Our local family of companies includes Salem Road & Driveway, a Salem construction and paving company, and Valley Concrete and Gravel, an Independence supplier of concrete, gravel, crushed river rock, and crushed quarry rock.

In 2006 River Bend was purchased by Oldcastle Materials, one of the largest building materials suppliers in North America. Oldcastle provides jobs for thousands of Americans at more than 1,400 locations across the country. Our association with Oldcastle provides us with strong financial support and links us to other quality Oldcastle companies like Green & White Rock Products in Corvallis and Eugene Sand & Gravel in Eugene.
