History of the tow path

Founded in 1996, Tow Path Ready Mix, Tow Path Materials, and Tow Path Products proudly continues a history of excellence that began with the company's namesake.


Throughout the 1800's barges pulled by teams of mules were the most efficient way of transporting goods and materials through the Ohio River Valley.


An easier and safer way for these mules to pull the barges was sought resulting in the advent of a road that ran beside the waterways for the mules to walk on.  This road was named the "Tow Path."


It was this endearing symbol of hard work and American ingenuity that was chosen for the name and symbol of our company.
