A Brief History of Gerdan Slipforming

In the late 1980s, Gerry Driskell knew that she needed to do something to set her family business apart from the increasingly competitive market of concrete flatwork. After purchasing a used Gomaco paver and Missouri Safety Barrier Curb mold, a test pour was completed in May of 1990 at the location of Gerdan Slipforming’s current office with state officials present to witness slipforming bridge walls that were typically hand formed. The test pour went well, and that day we received approval from MoDOT to slipform bridge walls on their projects across the state. 

Gerdan Slipforming, Inc. was then officially incorporated on June 1, 1990, with Gerry Driskell as the sole owner. That successful test pour was recorded and shortly after being incorporated, Gerry rented a 13” TV/VCR combo and had Dan Driskell hit the road setting up appointments with contractors across the state of Missouri. That first road trip proved to be a success, because in the first week of appointments, Gerdan Slipforming received 10+ additional contracts.
