Premier Precaster Wells Concrete becomes newest Easi-Set SlenderWall Producer
Easi-Set Worldwide announces the addition of Wells Concrete Products Inc. as a licensed producer of SlenderWall architectural cladding.
“Wells’ efforts to find innovative ways to provide more value for their clients is what led them to SlenderWall,” said Art Miles, Easi-Set’s President. “The expertise Wells has in architectural precast products will play a pivotal role in expanding SlenderWall’s Midwest market opportunities. Their R&D skills, and relationships with accessories suppliers like Empirehouse (plant-installed windows), will be a benefit to both Easi-Set as an organization and SlenderWall customers.”
Since 1957, Wells Concrete has been building and installing structural and architectural precast products, currently producing nearly 5 million square feet per year. Known as the largest precast solutions company in the upper Midwest, they serve customers in seven states and the Canadian province of Manitoba with their four precast plants and eight office locations.
“In an effort to expand our market share, and also listening to our customers, we are introducing a new lightweight panel system to our region. With the labor shortages we are experiencing in the field, we are bringing some of the site work into our plants including installation of windows and the application of foam insulation. The lighter weight SlenderWall system will allow multiple pieces on a load for shipping which greatly improves the site logistics for the field services team as well as reduced loadings on the structure,” said Gregg Jacobson, Wells Concrete Senior VP of Product Development.
SlenderWall is a hi-performance, thermal and fire code compliant, lightweight architectural precast composite cladding system. Reduce structural costs and on-site trades with the only envelope system that combines the proven technologies: architectural precast concrete, PVA fiber and welded wire reinforcing, stainless-steel fasteners, closed-cell foam continuous insulation, and ready for drywall heavy gauge G90 galvanized steel studs, to create a single efficient solution for new construction or renovation.
