What We Do
We design and manufacture reliable and cost-effective concrete leveling machines known as "laser-guided screeds." Our focus is on "boom-operated screeds," which are far superior to traditional "drive-in screeds." We are also a leader in innovative, lightweight drive-in systems for upper deck concrete and slab-on-grade screeding applications.
Our screeds are production machines specifically developed for commercial flat work and can dramatically reduce dependence on labor, which is often in short supply, while yielding a higher-quality end product.
Who We Serve
Our customers are concrete flat work contractors of all sizes performing specification-driven work that demands first-rate Floor Flatness (FF) and Floor Levelness (FL) results. Our screed machines enable our customers to be more competitive and profitable in a tight construction labor market.
How We Perform
"We have seen better labor savings with the Ligchine ScreedSaver than with the Somero screed...
...We pour between 30,000 and 35,000 yards of concrete per year, so labor savings is a tremendous asset for us. We have seen higher FL numbers, and I'd highly recommend this screed to anybody in the concrete business."
Nate Limoges, Limoges Construction, Sioux Falls, SD
"The ScreedSaver Machine Has changed the way we place slabs, resulting in huge labor savings...
...We pour a lower slump concrete, which reduces our finishing times and gets us in and out of the job significantly quicker, making us very price-competitive. My only mistake was not buying a ScreedSaver 4 or 5 years sooner."
