Norcast Concrete Ltd, a newly formed producer of ready-mix concrete and pre-cast concrete products, commissions new state-of-the-art plant in Prince Albert, SK. Norcast Concrete is a company formed by local business leaders who were born and raised in Prince Albert. Together they bring over 40 years of construction and aggregate processing experience to serve Prince Albert and the surrounding regions of Northern Saskatchewan with ready-mix and pre-cast concrete products and aggregates.
Norcast Concrete’s facility includes a new BMH Systems concrete batching plant with capacity of batching up to 140 cubic meters per hour. The plant operates on fully automated Marcotte system controls with certified field technicians that ensure every load of concrete is produced with extreme precision ensuring product specifications are met or exceeded. “The combination of high throughput capability and high precision is something that was extremely important for our company to be competent in serving small residential projects to large complex commercial and industrial projects” said Kevin Graves, President of Norcast Concrete. Norcast Concrete plant and staff operate under American Concrete Institute (“ACI”) and CSA Standards.
Norcast Concrete is currently hiring and will continue to create a number of jobs over the coming years within Prince Albert. “We are excited to begin the operations of Norcast today. Economic development in our home community is important to our company. We are excited to have the opportunity to provide local jobs to the people in our communities. We are currently hiring for plant staff and operators and expect the numbers of those positions to grow as we expand within the pre-cast component of our operations.” said Andrew Ardell, Director of Norcast Concrete.
The Prince Albert region is experiencing an increase in major commercial and industrial construction projects in the coming years such as Victoria hospital expansion, the Aquatic and Arenas recreation centre, and additional projects from the mining and minerals industries. “We are looking forward to working with local contractors and constructors of these projects” said Kevin Graves, President of Norcast Concrete.
