Uncharted territory for precast technology – first precast concrete plant opened in Ecuador

Echo Precast Engineering NV, 3530 Houthalen, Belgium Tecnocom, 33100 Udine, Italy


As far as precast construction is concerned, Ecuador was a blank sheet two years ago. Conventional construction methods were the norm, productivity was often low and the rate of accidents on construction sites high. When the State concern, EPCE was assigned the task of developing a new, efficient construction system, the choice was made for precast construction. With the support of two companies within the Progress Group, Echo Precast Engineering and Tecnocom, the first precast concrete plant in the country was constructed. There, EPCE is now successfully producing hollow core slabs and solid walls.
