At a time when many precasters are struggling to find business and keep balance sheets in the black, NPCA member Trenwa Inc. is building a new, state-of-the-art plant in Southern Indiana.
Trenwa broke ground on the $2.5 million project on July 14 and expects it to create up to 24 jobs by 2012, including production associate positions next spring in line with the anticipated plant opening. Once complete, the plant will occupy 10 acres near Florence, Ind, including a 25,000 sq. ft. high bay production facility to replace its current operations in Warsaw, Ky.
Trenwa’s three existing plants are all NPCA Certified Plants. NPCA President, Ty Gable, said, “Trenwa has always been an industry innovator and a model of forward thinking, and this is just one more example of those qualities.”
Trenwa specializes in a variety of precast concrete trench systems for the distribution of electrical control cables, power cables, mechanical piping and fiber optics, as well as range of other precast concrete utility products.
The trench systems allow for easy access, flexibility and durability, and can support a wide variety of design loads. The precast concrete trenches are also economical, protect from corrosion and can be used with a variety of accessories and embeddments.
In addition to its headquarters and current plant in Kentucky, Trenwa also has facilities in Colorado, Florida and Puerto Rico.
