In business for more than 70 years, Spancrete machinery prides itself as both an equipment manufacturer and precast producer; perfecting all of the equipment first in their own plants. Their strong perspective means customers of both their machinery and precast products receive the best available.
Structures in the Caribbean need to withstand the increasing occurrence of hurricanes, so quality products such as those created with Spancrete machinery are necessary. Precast products are an ideal solution for this growing need – as they offer exceptional structural integrity – and precasters, including Preconco Limited in Barbados, are meeting the need.
Using Spancrete machinery, Preconco is in the process of creating and installing materials for a luxury residential property on the island of Canouan in the Grenadines. Comprising of a two-story apartment building and five luxury villas, the developer has been very impressed by the quality of the precast products, as well as the ease of installation on-site.
With product being made in Barbados, a carefully timed production has been needed to insure smooth installation. Everything is shipped via barge and immediately installed, allowing for a continuous build schedule and zero storage needs.
Creating efficiency and reducing operational expenses
On the production side, this is possible thanks to the line-up of Spancrete machinery Preconco is running at its facility. New technology has made it easier to operate than ever as it can take precast designs and seamlessly feed the production process – creating efficiency and reducing operational expenses.
For an island precaster, and really for a precaster anywhere in the world, being able to adapt to the changing needs of their customers, demands of the marketplace and available resources is crucial. Spancrete Machinery solutions help these plants by leading the way in scalability, automation and efficiency:
Scalability of production allows plants to maintain maximum productivity as customer orders increase and decrease by the season,
Automation provides tightened tolerances leading to higher quality end products and greater customer satisfaction,
Efficiency is created by opportunities to streamline operating costs and minimize maintenance expenses.
For Preconco, providing a positive experience in both product and installation has added value to their customers, and helps get them to the table sooner in a project’s development in order to have maximum impact. But their products can only be as good as the machines that make them. Available anywhere in the world, Spancrete Machinery is the scalable, proven solution in the precast industry.
