Jensen Precast Announces Acquisition of the Assets of Teichert Precast Concrete Products
April 2012 - Sparks, NV – One of America’s largest privately owned precast concrete companies, Jensen Precast, announced today that they have acquired the assets of the Teichert Precast Concrete Products plants in Sacramento and Stockton, California.
For many years Teichert Precast Concrete Products and Jensen Precast have provided precast concrete infrastructure products to many of the same customers in Central and Northern California including AT&T; Frontier Communications; Merced Irrigation District (MEID); Modesto Irrigation District (MID); Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E); Turlock Irrigation District (TID); and Caltrans.
“Teichert has been in the precast concrete business in Northern California for 70 years,” said Don Jensen, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Jensen Precast. “They’ve built a great reputation of providing excellent customer service and quality products. That’s the same way we’ve built Jensen Precast since 1968, so agreeing to acquire their precast assets when they decided to sell was an easy decision on our part.”
While the sale of Teichert Precast’s assets to Jensen Precast, headquartered in Sparks, Nevada, does not impact Teichert’s construction and other construction materials businesses, it also assures that their precast concrete customers will continue to receive the finest quality products and the utmost in customer care.
“We feel this arrangement with Teichert Precast will be of great benefit to both companies,” said Tony Shanks, President of Jensen Precast. “We’re happy that we can step in to continue to serve Teichert’s current customers with expanded product lines such as handholes and meter boxes; onsite wastewater treatment; prepackaged pump and lift stations; stormwater treatment; rainwater harvesting; retaining walls; LockLid Utility Enclosure Security Lids; and box culvert to name a few.”
“We’re extremely pleased that most of Teichert Precasts sales and administrative employees will be joining Jensen including Dave Bargsten, Precast Division Manager and Garrett Flores, Teichert Precast’s Sales Manager,” added Eric Jensen, Chief Marketing Officer for Jensen Precast. “They bring with them a great deal of experience along with solid foundations of impeccable customer service.”
