The National Precast Concrete Association bills the inaugural Precast Days as an opportunity for producer members to provide engineers, specifiers, students, professors and the community at large with a personal, up-close look at their plant operations. The association has set up a portal through which members can choose a plant tour date during the last two weeks of October.
When Representative Roger Williams (TX-25), a key House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee member, toured Johnson County Pipe in Alvarado, Texas, he shook hands, observed advanced cage and product machinery, and then took controls to complete a concrete pipe section. His visit was the latest in a series of American Concrete Pipe Association-organized plant tours aimed at underscoring the industry’s commitment to quality production and worker safety, while reinforcing concerns about the federal government’s insufficient infrastructure funding.
