M & B GROUP
In 2018 M and B Group acquired DuBrook Inc. and retained the DuBrook name for their concrete plants.
M and B was founded in 2003 by Mike Hindman and Braun Gourley. What started as primarily a residential concrete company, only employing a handful of people, M and B Services has grown into a diverse full-service concrete construction company. It now employs 50 people and is a year-round enterprise providing commercial construction services to federal, state, and municipal governments as well as private organizations.
According to Mike Hindman, President of the M and B Group, “We plan to operate under the DuBrook name with the same personnel”. M and B Redi-Mix currently operates plants in Clarion and Brookville. The acquisition of DuBrook will geographically connect DuBrook’s plants in DuBois, St Mary’s, Butler and Evans City, with M and B plants in Clarion and Brookville. “This acquisition will give us a very large coverage area and will allow us to serve the needs of our customers throughout that area. Our goal is to provide high quality products and dependable service to all of our customers,” said Braun Gourley, M and B’s Vice President.
Braun Gourley’s great-grandfather, Charles M. Lawrence began the Clarion branch of the business in 1919. The Lawrence family owned and operated the business until it was sold to the Glenn family in 1984. Paul Glenn purchased the Brookville location in the 1970’s. The M and B Group purchased Glenn Redi-Mix in April of 2014.
Similar to Mr. Ogorchock, Mike and Braun started M and B Services in 2003 with one dump truck and grew their business into many facets of construction. “When we started looking into the history of both M and B and DuBrook it was amazing to see the similarities. This deal was meant to be,” Gourley said.
