OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To be the leader in the supply of quality products, innovative solutions and exceptional service to the construction, landscape and contracting industries. We are committed to growth by creating partnerships that contribute to the success of our customers, suppliers and the entire G&L Group team.
A composite construction material, concrete is the building block of our urban landscape. From architectural
structures and foundations, pavements and bridges, runways and parking structures, concrete has become the backbone
of our nation’s framework. At G&L, we are committed to being part of what keeps that backbone thriving.
For over fifty years, G&L has been one of the largest suppliers of quality products, innovative solutions and exceptional service to Ontario’s leading companies and communities. Our roots were first planted by a young Italian couple looking to make their mark in a burgeoning city. Operating out of a small property in Thornhill, Ontario, Joe and Lucy Lamanna delivered concrete and stone using a single truck.
As the years passed and the business grew, partnerships were made. Together with Tony Pellegrini they established Toronto’s preferred ready-mix supplier and the largest and most technologically advanced independent supplier in Ontario, Toronto Redimix.
Continuing to serve the construction, landscape and contracting industries, G&L expanded, adding Draglam Salt, Brock Aggregates, Earthco Soil Mixtures, New Century Homes, Devils Den Golf Course and Draglam Waste & Recycling to the ‘mix’. With the added support and vision of Joe and Lucy’s son and son-in-law, Pat Lamanna and Robert Zanetti, each new venture helped to further establish G&L as Ontario’s premier source and supplier in constructing and creating dynamic communities.
Innovative, strategic, superior. Our group of companies not only offer services but also solutions to better communities and enrich our country. With over 300 employees and 20 locations across the province, G&L, like the concrete it produces, is at the foundation of every great community.
