In 1977, Jerry Lane, together with his wife Bonnie, founded Lane Concrete Cutting.
Jerry had come to Oregon from the Bay Area where he'd already made his mark in the construction industry. From simple beginnings, the business was based on many of the practices and principles he'd gained over the course of his career. Ultimately, company grew and flourished into a premier partner to the construction industry across Oregon and Washington.
Today, Laneco carries on a legacy of excellence and the spirit of Jerry Lane, who was deeply dedicated to exceeding industry standards while respecting the ingenuity of those who built it. In a letter to his former employer, Jerry wrote the following words:
"You must keep the vigil so that present standards will always strive to keep up with the old standards set forth by men not of your company now, but the ghosts of the past."
