Our History

 

Stress-Con Industries began in Bay City, Michigan in 1991 working primarily on structural bridges. From there,
we expanded into Detroit and branched out into more structural precast options in the industrial, residential and
commercial fields.

 

On February 1, 2002 we greatly enhanced our architectural department with the purchase of Nucon Schokbeton, a facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This full service, high-end architectural plant has a history of quality service beyond the norm. This purchase has allowed us to specialize in both structural and architectural precast concrete resulting in full service precast concrete options
for our customers.

 

Translated literally, “Schokbeton” means “shocked concrete.” Discovered in the Netherlands and developed over the past 60 years, “Schokbeton” is a method of precasting architectural concrete of high strength and extreme high density into a variety of precise shapes, textures and finishes.

 

Our In-House Mold Shop, Finishing Department, Quality Control Lab, Steel Fabrication Shop, Truck and Trailer Repair Shop and two Batch Plants allow complete control over the destiny of the product. Addressing the issue of quality, our Nucon facility possesses A1 PCI plant certification. Many organizations require PCI’s highly respected plant certification as part of their specification process. These include government agencies in thirty-one states and many municipalities. Federal agencies include The General Services Administration, The Federal Bureau of Prisons, The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, The Naval Facilities Engineering Command and The American Institute of Architect’s Masterspec Program also requires PCI plant certification.

We are currently Michigan’s largest bridge beam manufacturer.
