Scenic City Concrete Pumping And Walls To Get 70 Meter Boom Pump

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Bobby Kean of Scenic City Concrete Pumping and Walls Inc will announce Friday the delivery of the newest, largest member of the Scenic City Concrete Pumping and Walls pump truck fleet. A 70 meter boom pump, just one of four in the country, has made its cross country trip destined for the Chattanooga area.

The machine, built for pumping concrete to the highest, hardest to reach areas of some of the tri-state area’s largest construction projects, will arrive Friday.

Assisting on such projects as the north/south Hwy 27 bridge expansion, the Chickamauga Dam lock expansion, the TVA Watts Bar expansion, and much more, Scenic City Concrete Pumping and Wall’s boom pumps have become an asset to tri-state area builders and contractors who call on these machines and their expert operators day in and day out, said officials. By acquiring the 70 meter pump, Scenic City Concrete Pumping and Walls looks to facilitate more growth in the greater Chattanooga area and beyond. 

With over 40 years of industry experience and the vision of making Scenic City the premier concrete pumping company in the Southeast since 2005, Bobby and Susan Kean have grown their business to include an ever-expanding fleet of line pumps and boom pump trucks, a pump sales and repair shop, as well as truck repair and service ran by master mechanic and the second generation of Scenic City Concrete Pumping and Walls, Jason Kean. Brother, Wes Kean, serves as lead pump operator, as well as the Kean’s grandson, Tanner, another of Scenic City Concrete Pumping and Walls Inc.’s expert mechanics.
