Yesterday we celebrated Barclay Gebel’s 35th year at Clayco!

This is an incredible milestone, and Barclay has come a long way since joining the company with his purple ponytail. He grew up around construction and began working on his first tilt-up project at 16 while attending high school. The hard hat that he still wears today is the same one issued to him in 1988! 

Barclay went on to become Vice President of Operations for Clayco TiltUp and oversaw that brand’s continued growth throughout the 1990s until its rebranding as Concrete Strategies in 2005. He is a past member and president of the Board of Directors for the TCA, a past chair of the TCA Safety Committee, and the inaugural recipient of the Tilt-Up Contractor of the Year Award.

Barclay is a valued team member, and we are lucky to have him as a part of the Clayco and Clark family. Thank you for your decades-long journey with us and for helping add “more to the pour” in every project and endeavor.
