Cuz Concrete Products, Inc. was co-founded in 1969 by Glen Zachry and two of his cousins – hence the name “Cuz”. By 1979 Glen’s cousins had decided to leave the business and he became the sole owner. Glen’s original intention was to supply Snohomish County with septic tanks. He purchased one truck, a hydraulic crane and three septic tank forms. First production started in a barn and by 1975 the business had grown enough to move the company to its present location on 10 acres near the Arlington Airport. By 1976 Cuz Concrete was selling 3000+ septic tanks a year and the company expanded into pipe and pumps to compliment the tanks. It was then that Glen’s wife, Eilene, left her job with a CPA firm and assumed the accounting/financial responsibilities of the company.
Through Glen’s long-range vision and hands on philosophy, he has built the company to where it is now, producing not only septic tanks, but also manholes, catch basins and utility vaults along with many specialized products. Cuz Septic Service, a division of Cuz Concrete, is well known in Snohomish County as a leader in septic tank pumping service and provides vactoring and jetting services as well. Also, in 1984 T & E Repair was started to provide diesel engine repair, all types of truck repair, welding, fabrication and emergency road service. T & E Repair does all the servicing and repair of Cuz Concrete trucks and equipment as well as servicing outside customers. Between the three aspects of the business Cuz currently has approximately 70 employees.
Glen and Eilene worked together for 36 years to build Cuz Concrete Products, Inc. into the company that is today. It is a highly respected, family owned business that has its roots in the local community. In April 2005 they sold their interest in the business to their youngest son Wayne Zachry, who has been with Cuz Concrete since 1971, and Waynes two oldest sons Aaron and Brandon Zachry, who have been with Cuz Concrete since 1984 and 1990 respectively. Glen and Eilene’s contributions and influence will continue to be reflected in the way the company is run by Wayne, Aaron and Brandon.
