Already a well-positioned supplier in the Western United States, Oldcastle APG, through its subsidiary Central Pre-Mix Concrete Products, found itself in strong need of a new production facility in the Northwest. The geographic focus narrowed to the rapidly growing Seattle Metro area. The concept was to develop a state of the art facility, in both volume and quality criterion, for a full range of hardscape products. Fredrickson, WA became the 28 acre (11.3 hectare) site to build a combined facility for optimized and comprehensive production. The plant was up and running in early 2017.
