Incorporated in March of 1980, Precon is an independently owned and operated precast concrete company supplying to Western Canada and the Northwestern United States. In the 80s, Precon started by producing pre-benched manhole bases to help underground projects reduce installation time and cost. From there, Precon has expanded its product line to include manhole materials, vault structures, multi-panel structures, buildings, irrigation control structures and trench drains. We have also developed unique, one-time structures to meet a specific customer requirement. We take pride in our ability to create innovative, highly technical structures and we do it while providing a rewarding and safe environment for our staff.
