commercial construction business.” The innovative manufacturing process used in Fabcon’s first plant helped lay the foundation for the company’s current success. Leveraging rolling-bed technology, the forms move to where the concrete is mixed. This allows Fabcon to house all of its equipment in a small, quality-controlled area, as opposed to the huge space that is required for fixed-bed production. To this day, Fabcon uses this manufacturing process at its facilities located in Minnesota, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Ohio. In addition to its patented manufacturing process, Fabcon’s legacy for innovation is also exhibited through its product line. Fabcon was one of the first companies to develop a prestressed, hollow-core wall panel. Because hollow-core panels require fewer raw materials to achieve the same structure, the panels have traditionally provided the benefit of reduced shipping costs. However, heavier solid panels give manufacturers more flexibility to cast-in window and door openings. Fabcon’s VersaCore+Green™ panel is the first precast product to combine these advantages. The company’s VersaCore+Green precast panels contain as much as 58 percent (by value) recycled content, deliver R-Values that lower heating and cooling costs, and are available in a range of thicknesses, widths and finishes. To expand its offerings to the residential, municipal and transportation markets, Fabcon recently became a licensed producer of Verti-Crete wall systems. Verti-Crete is a vertical concrete casting system that allows Fabcon to deliver customized precast structures that look like natural stone, rock or stucco. The two-sided decorative concrete panels can be quickly and securely installed along noisy roadways, and around residential developments, businesses and municipal buildings. In January, Fabcon also introduced WainsCrete, a precast modular base panel for use with metal buildings. Wains-Crete can be purchased in sizes that meet the requirements of an “abuse wall,” offering customers the advantage of paying only for the material they need at the base of their buildings.
