Company has announced a noncorrosive, plastic centralizer version of its steel “OS2” model, suited to micro or auger cast piles, drilled shafts, caissons or tower footings.

(outside) diameter, covering most common sizes of auger piles and drilled shafts, while fitting through most cages if needed. The open sided or offset design falls into place quickly on a single reinforcing bar or threaded rod, and is engineered for #7 or #11 bar with a ¼-in. off-center variance.

Twin Valley Precast is part of the Spring Ridge community, a Hutterite settlement in Alberta about two hours east of Edmonton. The Hutterites immigrated from Eastern European countries to South Dakota around the turn of the last century. They thrived and expanded with new settlements in Alberta, speaking a variation of German among themselves but English otherwise. The communities farm large tracts of land in the grain belt, selling most of the crop but also using it to feed livestock and poultry for local consumption and outside markets.
