About High Concrete

High Concrete Group LLC combines innovation, proven technology, more than three quarters of a century’s experience as a precast company, and nearly 50 years as a precaster to give you the first-rate service, technical support, and precast products you need to bring your designs to life.

High Concrete is a manufacturer of high quality prefab elements and is also the largest producer of concrete prefab parking decks in the US. High Concrete has two plants, one architectural and one structural and they are configured with Simem twin shaft mixers. They were already making quality SCC but desired to go to the next level and increase their consistency.

Besides this goal, similar to Europe, High Concrete is obligated to produce their concrete according to specific requirements which are determined by region. For that reason, High Concrete had to find a reliable supplier of concrete production automation systems. Numerous options were researched and American, Canadian and European suppliers were evaluated.

Eventually, High Concrete chose Command Alkon based on their good reputation, their proven track record and innovative solutions.
