Made in Texas

AUSTIN - It’s no secret that family owned businesses are recognized as important and dynamic participants in the economy. However, few of those businesses make it to the third generation. This is about a company that is a “Texas proud” third generation contractor.





    Larry Ibarra, owner of Knockout Boys Concrete in Round Mountain, TX grew up in the concrete business.  As a third generation concrete contractor, he remembers seeing his father and his grandfather doing concrete. “This is what I know and this is what I’ve been doing,” says Ibarra.
    He is proud to say he is “Texas made,” having been born in Austin and raised in the central Texas hillcountry area.
    Ibarra took over his father’s business in 2005. The company continues to service the central Texas areas (Johnson City, Marble Falls, Round Mountain, Spicewood, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville) and Austin. Currently there are six full time employees.
    The business is ALL concrete: driveways; foundations; sidewalks, concrete repairs; concrete staining; retaining walls; patios,  etc. Ibarra says his priority is customer service – quality work and fairness.  And there is no job they can’t handle – seven days a week. “When customers call to schedule service, they are guaranteed to reach a representative that is excited about helping turn their project idea into a finished product. Our work isn’t done until you are satisfied with the service you’ve received.
    “Knockout Boys Concrete is competitive in price, but first in quality.  We like to get our hands dirty!”
    Outside of working, the “boys” get together at LBJ Lake, barbecuing, fishing and other getaway lake activities.  Sometimes on large jobs, they team up with other concrete companies and all go to the lake.
    Ibarra says, “We take pride in our work, that’s Texas proud. And we like what we do.”
    Knockout Boys Concrete is an all service concrete contractor servicing the central Texas area. –rd
