In l964, Louis Orantes and his father, Francisco Orantes, purchased the business known as Bayshore Wreckers, and changed the name to Bayshore Materials, Inc.
In 1964, the business consisted of about 70% used building materials and about 30% new building materials. Slowly afterwards, the business grew with more new building materials, and less used building materials. Today, the business is 90% new building and 10% used building materials.
In l974, they introduced the very popular Concrete U-Cart Trailer with wet cement to take home for the do-it-yourself market. In 1983, Francisco Orantes retired and Louis's son, Keith Orantes joined the company.
In l991 they started delivering wet concrete in their new 4-yard concrete delivery truck. Another 4-yard concrete delivery truck was purchased in 2001 to keep up with they growing demand. They now have 15 trailers and two 4-yard concrete delivery trucks that are available seven days a week. Plus they have two dump trucks capable of delivering up to 10 yards of landscape materials.
Keith Orantes has been a valued addition in the helping this business grow. Over the past few years they have become dealer for some major manufactures such as: Basalite Block Company, McNear Brick & blocks, La Habra Stucco Products, Davis Colors for Concrete & Mortar, A.D.S.
