From our founders to our future
Manatt’s Inc. hosted a 75th anniversary celebration event at Manatt’s headquarters, 1775 Old 6 Road, Brooklyn, on Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022, featuring performances by Tyler Rich and JT Hodges of Nashville. It was a family-focused event that celebrated the hard work and dedication of Manatt’s employees, vendor partners, and customers.
Since 1947, Manatt’s has built, paved, and hauled their way across the Midwest and beyond. They have always been a family-owned and operated business but understand the importance and value their dedicated employees bring to work each day.
“What sets us apart is our people,” said Adam Manatt, Manatt’s Vice President of Ready Mix. “Anyone can go out and buy the equipment; it’s the people we have on our team that makes us different.”

“It speaks to the legacy of Manatt’s, that people are willing to spend their whole career here,” said Greg Manatt, Manatt’s Vice President of Fleet Management. “What better legacy is there than that?”
There was something for everyone. From face painting, yard games, equipment simulators, and a picnic-style dinner, it was an evening to connect, celebrate, and give thanks to the hardworking employees that make the company what it is today.
“What we do requires hard work.

What an amazing celebration.”
