about

our history

Ted Ondrick started the firm back in 1937 when the operation consisted of a tractor to create gardens, and a horse and scoop loader to dig foundations. Ted’s motto was, “Each client was a neighbor and was to be treated with honesty and integrity.”

Mechanization was the next step, and with more machinery meant more jobs. That is when Tadj Ondrick, Jr. joined Ted in the business in 1963. The pair were taking on more utility work, building sewer systems, and larger infrastructure-type projects, but it was Tadj who started the company in the materials and environmental side of the business.

The company soon expanded its community services by offering construction materials from their sand & gravel pits, as well as its granite quarry. In 1973, Ted Ondrick Co. had the first drum mix asphalt plant in Massachusetts. As the recycling concept developed, Ted Ondrick Co. became a resource to implement regional recycling by using recycled asphalt (RAP) in 1976. This allowed the community to recycle, rather than landfill, asphalt, concrete, and soil materials.

In 1979, Tadj Ondrick, Jr. designed and built a crushing plant to handle reinforced concrete, thus originating a blend of concrete, asphalt, and gravel – and then calling it “Hard-Pac.” This has become a Mass DEP approved model for concrete disposal and recycling. In that time, the business didn’t become the largest construction or commercial materials firm, but it was large enough to handle jobs such as rock crushing at Gillette Stadium and runways at Westover. Over the years, Tadj provided the site work and asphalt for eight different airports. The Ondrick Family has been providing asphalt for roadways across New England for decades. But, the business has continued to change over time.

In 1992, the newly developed contaminated soil remediation plant was one of the first in-state Class A Hazardous Waste Recyclers for petroleum and gas impacted soils. In addition to the stationary facility, a portable contaminated soil processing plant was developed. This was the first in Massachusetts to be able to move from location to location and process on-site.

To provide construction materials for any type of project and fit the needs of any type of client, Ondrick Natural Earth (O.N.E.) was established in 2006 by one of Tadj’s sons, Adam Ondrick, as a regional source of hardscape and masonry supplies. He considered this as an expansion, and a way to move forward in the industry. Consistent with Ondrick history, organic resources are utilized in preparation for bulk distribution, and for residential and commercial hardscape applications.

Professionals and do-it-yourselfers find all the landscaping, architectural, building stone, and masonry supplies they need at Ondrick Natural Earth. O.N.E.’s hardscape products are visible all throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut, not only at private residences but at business settings including Amherst College, Williams College, Williston Academy, Tower Square in Springfield, Peoples Bank in Holyoke and more.

In 2014, the Ondrick Companies became rebranded and referred to as Ted Ondrick Materials Group. The Ted Ondrick Materials Group rebrand was to show the different extensions and scopes of the businesses, which now consist of: Ondrick Portable Crushing and Paving, Ondrick Materials & Recycling, and Ondrick Natural Earth. Third generation leadership by Adam and Todd Ondrick now helps to serve a larger community while following our founding motto: Each client is a neighbor and is to be treated with honesty and integrity.

At Ted Ondrick Materials Group we bridge the gap between new technologies and customer needs. Ted Ondrick Materials Group continues to lead the industry in innovative solutions while maintaining a customer-first approach.
