| CORPORATE MEMBER PROFILE
Western Shotcrete Equipment has been a leader in
shotcrete pumping technology for over 30 years.
It produces and sells shotcrete pumps, nozzles,
and other accessories. The company’s goal is to continue
to grow as a leader in shotcrete pumping technology as it
strives to produce quality products that are designed to be
simple, easy to use, and durable.
The company started when the founder, Joe Harpole,
worked in the industry as a concrete pump mechanic.
Over the years of servicing concrete pumps, he believed
the machines could be improved upon so that they would
be more reliable and easier to work on. This belief has been
at the foundation and core of every product the company
has produced since the very first Warrior shotcrete pump
that was launched in 1985.
Western Shotcrete Equipment has remained a private,
family business since its inception. Today, Joe Harpole’s
sons manage the different aspects of the business and
share the same core beliefs as their father when he founded
the company. They have leaned on his many years of experience
in the field of shotcrete as the company continues to
grow and develop new products. To support this growth,
the company is looking to expand its dealer network.
San Fernando, CA, is where the company started and
remains the location of its sales and service facility, servicing
the greater Los Angeles area. For several years, the
