Con Cast Pipe acquires Hy-Grade Precast Concrete
Con Cast Pipe, a manufacturer of precast concrete drainage products including concrete pipe, manholes, catchbasins, and box units, as well as a wide range of bridge and specialty precast products in Canada, has announced the recent purchase of Hy-Grade Precast Concrete in St. Catharines, Ontario. Due to their outstanding reputation in the Niagara community, Hy-Grade Precast Concrete will continue to operate under the Hy-Grade name and become the third Ontario manufacturing facility for Con Cast Pipe.
Hy-Grade Precast Concrete is recognized for exceptional quality and adds comprehensive product solutions for Con Cast Pipe customers, including modular buildings, utility vaults, highway and security barriers, as well as retaining, security and privacy walls. The acquisition of Hy-Grade’s portfolio of products adds variety to Con Cast Pipe’s already extensive product offerings. “Con Cast Pipe’s purchase of Hy-Grade Precast Concrete will create exciting new growth opportunities that will benefit our employees and the communities in which we operate – Puslinch, Oakville and St. Catharines,” says Brian Wood, President of Con Cast Pipe. “The company brings a rich history of product knowledge and performance, and shares the same dedication and integrity that Con Cast Pipe is known for. The coming together of these two strong brands in the precast industry is a recipe for success.”
With the purchase complete, both companies will now work to ensure successful integration, capitalizing on the skills and resources within both organizations to provide
the premier choice of precast concrete products in the marketplace.
