About Us

Since our humble beginnings back in 1976, The Waites businesses have both grown successfully. Founders of both business John and Dan Waites are both very active in the day to day operations of both companies. Their sons are all very active in both businesses as well. John Ed, Tyler and Cole play a vital role in the businesses.

Waites also has very good employees, in which most all have been employed with the company a minumum of 5 years and one employee more than 25 years. We pride ourselves in successful business practices, which has resulted in many repeat clients over the years. We also believe in keeping God first in all things and he has truly blessed us.

Please look at each of the company's pages for information regarding what we do. Waites Construction Co., Inc. and Waites Concrete Co., Inc. are both located at 210 Stephen J White Memorial Blvd, Talladega, AL. We have both operations combined at this location.

In Memory of James E. Waites
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circle flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
I am the song that will never end.
I am the love of family and friend.
I am the child who has come to rest in
the arms of the Father who knows him best.
When you see the sunset fair,
I am the scented evening air.
I am the joy of a task well done.
I am the glow of the setting sun.
So do not stand at my grave and cry...
I am not there, I did not die.

In Loving Memory of
Jim Waites
January 18, 1954 - October 15, 2009

Jim passed away on Thursday, October 15, 2009 at Citizens Baptist Medical Center. He was laid to rest at Oak Hill Cemetery in Talladega, AL on October 18, 2009.

Jim was a Alabama State Certified Concrete Batchman, Concrete Plant Manager, PADI Diving Instructor and a certified and licensed Gunsmith. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, but most of all, he was a wonderful husband, father, brother and friend. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Jim was a vital part of our business on a daily basis. He served as general manager for the concrete company and equipment manager for the construction. He was a very knowledgeable person in many different aspects of life. His wife Wanda is still with the company. He is remembered and greatly missed by all that knew him. But, we must thank God that Jim is in a better place in which I hope all are making their plans to be there and see once again, "Big Jimmy."
