San Diego-based U.S. Concrete Precast Group has expanded its Golden State footprint (one southern, three northern California plants) and added structural product capabilities following acquisition of Pomeroy Corp., one of the West Coast’s original precast/prestressed producers. Pomeroy’s 40-acre yard in Perris, a Riverside County community about midway between Los Angeles and San Diego, brings the buyer into mainline and specialty prestressed products for transportation and parking structures, including bridge girders and piles; single or double tee beams and columns; pavement slabs; and, crossties for light rail.
The transaction follows a major capacity upgrade for U.S. Concrete Precast, a brand the former San Diego Precast Inc. adopted during a late-2007 shift from dated, land-locked sites to a new headquarters operation. Located on an 18-acre, U.S.-Mexico border plot, the plant was built around the company’s move into 10-ton and larger underground utility structures, and more efficient output of smaller utility products, site furnishings, fencing, sound barrier and retaining wall systems, and custom architectural precast. With five overhead cranes, including a 50-ton model, in an 80- _ 510-ft. main bay, plus acreage yet to be claimed for storage, the San Diego operation is well equipped to back up the Pomeroy log.
A forerunner in California precast/prestressed, Pomeroy originated in the early 1900s as a general contractor specializing in steel erection. Leading up to its current headquarters about one hour southeast of Los Angeles, it operated prestressed yards in northern California, Arizona, Florida and Massachusetts.
