Pioneering contractor dies

Doug Demmert, founder of Demmert & Associates, a decorative concrete contractor based in Glendale, Calif., died Sunday, August 9, 2009, at his home in Glendale. A pioneer of polished concrete in the southern California region, Doug and his son Greg made Demmert & Associates a “goto” company for high-end decorative work, says Jim Glessner, owner of GST International LLC. “Doug supported and promoted our industry for all the many years I knew him, and it was my privilege to be able to call him my friend. We have lost another industry leader.” Greg Demmert operated the business for the past few years while his father struggled with cancer. Greg will continue to run Demmert & Associates in the greater Los Angeles basin. Business associates will see almost no change in the company’s day-to-day operations. ? (818) 843-5844 ?
