In addition to innovative construction materials and techniques, Wells has also continued our geographical expansion to better serve our partners across the United States. From our humble midwestern roots, we’ve grown our North American footprint to help build communities from Canada to Mexico, and on both sides of the Mississippi. This growth included significant acquisitions of major precast manufacturers.
Wells Acquires Rocky Mountain Prestress
In January of 2019, Wells acquired Rocky Mountain Prestress (RMP), an integral part of the Denver business community for over 60 years. Consolidating and upgrading RMP's existing structural and architectural operations, the following year an over 122,673 sq ft new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility was constructed in Brighton, CO. Acquiring RMP officially pushed Wells' geographic footprint out of the Midwest and into the Mountain States region for continued growth and development.
Wells Acquires Spancrete®
Less than two years later, Wells acquired Spancrete, an extremely successful Great Lakes regional precaster and machinery manufacturer based out of Wisconsin and Illinois. The acquisition of Spancrete and its multiple manufacturing facilities in Valders, WI and Crystal Lake, IL was a tremendous milestone for Wells, as it expanded the company's market reach into the adjacent states of Wisconsin and Illinois. With this acquisition, Wells officially was able to cater to clients from Canada to Mexico, and Colorado to Indiana. Additionally, Wells created three regional segments of the company — Mountain States, Midwest, and Great Lakes.
