A Sioux Falls, S.D., plant has netted Hancock Concrete an eighth site and allowed Hanson Pipe & Precast to exit a market isolated from the core of its two main regions. With a strong local economy, the Sioux Falls area provides an attractive business setting for Hancock Concrete, notes company president Rob Schmigdall, adding, “This purchase aligns well with our growth strategy and long range vision … and will also help us restore some production capacity lost after a fire at our Lake View, Iowa plant.”

Hancock Concrete, he says, has welcomed all Sioux Falls employees aboard and credits plant management with building a strong, talented team and high standards for supplying quality concrete products. The South Dakota plant joins one North Dakota, two Iowa and five Minnesota Hancock sites offering a range of concrete pipe and precast drainage or transportation structures.
