Modernized Jessup plant strengthens CP&P regional position

Wiggert & Co. GmbH, 76227 Karlsruhe, Germany

In February, Concrete Pipe & Precast, LLC, based in Ashland, Virginia, USA, fired up a new, automated batching system at its Jessup, Maryland, plant. The 70,000 square foot production facility experienced an equipment failure in its aging batch plant last October. “Thankfully, the breakdown occurred at the beginning of the winter, which is typically a slower period and that gave us an opportunity to rebuild it with many improvements” notes John Blankenship, CP&P operations manager. CP&P was formed in 2012 as a joint venture between Americast and Hanson Pipe & Precast to provide the competitive Mid-Atlantic region with a complete line of concrete pipe and precast products. “We used ready mix until we could get back on our feet. It did the job, but I would not wish that experience on anyone.”
