Florida precaster increases efficiency and output with new batching system

Wiggert & Co. GmbH, 76227 Karlsruhe, Germany


Forterra, Inc., with 79 manufacturing locations in the U.S., eastern Canada, and Mexico, is one of the world’s largest publicly traded (Nasdaq: FRTA) producers of pipe and precast products for water-related infrastructure applications, including water transportation, distribution, and drainage. The firm was launched in 2015 via the acquisition by Irving, Texas-based Lone Star Fund of Hanson Building Products from Heidelberg Cement AG. Rebranded Forterra in October 2015, the firm has pursued a strategy of organic growth through operational efficiency, customer service and product innovation. The firm has also made several key acquisitions and divestitures designed to optimize its regional coverage, improve product offerings, and achieve economies of scale. By consistently reinvesting in its own manufacturing operations, Forterra has steadily improved capacity, product quality, and efficiency. A recent example of this success is the firm’s Deland, Florida Pipe and Precast facility, located about 20 miles north of Orlando. Deland is one of five Forterra manufacturing locations in Florida. The other plants are located in Green Cove Springs, Gretna, Marianna and Winter Haven.
