For Rotondo Precast (a division of Oldcastle), patenting products is almost a way of life. Whenever it lands on a “novel” product that no one else in the market has discovered yet, the Rehoboth, Mass.-based precaster immediately puts the patent gears in motion, drawing up paperwork and consulting with its in-house intellectual property expert on how to properly present the idea to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
There are no steel-and-glass structures jutting up into the blue to compete with this natural portrait. Rows of mountains for as far as you can see line the valley’s northern and southern boundaries and add depth to background of this living tapestry.
A single company experiences the outgrowth of the precast industry from infancy to maturity – from horse-drawn wagon to the computer age.
