Columbus is home to one of the most modern, dry-cast concrete operations in Ohio, thanks to a $10 million expansion at Hanson Pipe & Precast. The operation was scheduled to be fully operational leading up to a late-June grand opening celebration. To commemorate the expansion, Hanson Pipe will make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network benefiting Columbus Children’s Hospital.
We look forward to supporting the Columbus area’s growth through the water transportation products this facility produces, says Richard Manning, president of Hanson Building Products North America. This new addition will help us not only increase production but also modernize our Columbus operations.
The addition represents a significant increase in production and centers on a new Hawkeye PipePro III XT Machine, which includes modules for creating three different diameters of pipe at the same time and is the first of its kind in the United States. Capable of 400 tons/shift output, the facility is part of Hanson’s 26-plant, Columbus-based Northeast operating region. In addition to Ohio, the region serves Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Ontario Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Virginia markets.
