Capital Precast benefits from a resilient market, customer-first philosophy, and modular batch plant

Wiggert & Co. GmbH, 76227 Karlsruhe, Germany

It's no accident that Capital Precast of San Marcos, Texas – just north of San Antonio – has achieved consistent growth despite numerous challenges. Founded by a husband and wife, both Texas A&M engineering graduates, the firm has attracted, grown, and retained a loyal customer base thanks to a proven philosophy: the customer comes first. Founded in New Braunfels, Texas, in 1997 by Ash and Renee Wineinger, Capital Precast has steadily grown from a one-person shop to a 65-employee enterprise (see figure 1) with a new 50,000 square foot facility in San Marcos (see figure 2). Along the way, the company has remained true to its original business plan. "We've never just been order takers," says Capital Precast founder and president Ash Wineinger. "The approach we live by is value added. Each of our top sales staff and production managers have an average of 20-30 years of precast industry experience. We review plans, make recommendations, and own an order from start to finish. The key to complete satisfaction is making certain that ultimately we're producing the right product with the highest possible quality." The firm has even done well during less-than-ideal economic times, including the Recession. It helps that the firm serves the San Antonio/Austin market, which has proven to be more than economically resilient. In fact, San Antonio has been called one of the most recession-proof cities in the U.S. The area is home to a wide range of economically dependable industries, including 31 colleges and universities, major military bases, and medicine/biosciences. In fact, education, military, and government employed a third of the city's workers in 2012.
