Jensen Precast has strengthened its California market presence in a deal with CalPortland Co. for Southwest Concrete Products, Ontario. Jensen Precast has operated a facility in nearby Fontana since 1989, primarily providing underground electric and telecommunication utility products, septic tanks, grease interceptors, and Caltrans highway barriers. Southwest Concrete Products, founded in 1966, has vast experience in the southern California sewer and storm drain manhole and drainage inlet markets.
“Since our inception, we have been a major producer of sewer and storm drain manholes,” says Jensen Precast CEO Eric Jensen. “We deeply understand the manufacturing and application of these products. However, until the addition of this Ontario location, we had limited manufacturing resources to be an effective supplier of sewer and storm drain manholes. Now we are all in. Jensen Precast is fully committed to continuing and expanding sewer and storm drain manhole and drainage inlet products across southern California.”
