Denver-based EnCon United Û a contraction of Îengineered concreteÌ + United Û comprises five companies that specialize in precast and prestressed concrete products. They include:

  • Atlanta Structural Concrete, LLC, Atlanta, formerly LEAP Structural Concrete Company
  • EnCon Colorado, LLC, Denver, the former bridge girder business of Rinker Materials
  • Stresscon Corp. of Colorado Springs
  • EnCon Utah, LLC, of Tooele, Utah, near Salt Lake City
  • EnCon Washington, LLC

EnCon United is a specialty contactor providing engineered concrete products and services to the commercial, heavy/highway, and public works construction communities. Its notable history of PCI participation includes Û in addition to a long list of activities Û the term as 1999 PCI Chairman of William Richardson, president of Stresscon Inc./Denver Metro Division president and executive vice president of EnCon United in Colorado Springs [see Restructuring Replete, April 1999, or visit http://concreteproducts.com/mag/concrete_restructing_replete/].

With the acquisition of Stresscon Corp., EnCon entered the precast/prestressed concrete market in early 1993. Stresscon has two facilities, a main plant in Colorado Springs and a satellite operation 20 miles north of Denver.

In 1997, EnCon added Atlanta Structural Concrete Co. via acquisition and built a new plant in Buchanan, Ga. Atlanta Structural at that time was building a new facility near Tallahassee, Fla.

In 1999, EnCon acquired five more plants in the western U.S. These facilities were serving a highway products market encompassing Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake City.

In 2004, EnCon acquired the bridge girder business of Rinker Materials. Its EnCon Colorado subsidiary thus immediately became a major player in that market sector.

EnCon United intends to continue growing through internal diversification and an active acquisition program, company officials note.
