Automation, Innovation and Future of Precast Concrete Manufacturing

My background runs deep in the precast concrete industry. In 1917, my great-grandfather began producing concrete products in the midwestern United States and my grandfather carried on that tradition; ultimately with his son's building one of the largest precast machinery businesses in the world. I’ve had the good fortune of a front row seat to the highs and lows of four generations devoted to both the manufacturing of concrete products and the machinery used to do so. As the newly-appointed CEO and fellow architect of the Afinitas group of companies, I feel compelled to share a snapshot of our collective vision for the future of our company and the broader industry.
