Service to be trusted and new technology solutions for the global precast industry

Spancrete, Waukesha, WI 53188, USA


By 1946, Henry Nagy was already running a successful concrete block business, but he knew there could be more. Inspired by technology he came across in Europe, he introduced the first precast concrete manufacturing machine – the “hollowcore slipformer” – to the U.S. After repairing and improving the bomb-damaged machine, he secured patents and began producing long spans of precast concrete that could not only be created faster, but offered superior durability compared to the concrete blocks he had been manufacturing. Applying a combination of vision and drive, he forever changed the face of the concrete and construction industries and started the Spancrete legacy. Since then, Spancrete has remained a leading force in the precast industry. For more than 70 years, they have continued to bring experience, perspective and an eye for innovation to the industry. As the only company to function as both an equipment manufacturer and hollowcore producer, they are uniquely poised to continue innovating on both fronts. Their secret? Always exploring new technology options.
