Our facility is completely integrated to meet all the customer’s product requirements, delivered when they are needed. Our large capacity batch plant is capable of mixing 200 cubic yards per hour. We have a full complement of concrete transporters and ready-mix trucks to move the concrete from the batch plant complex to more than 50 casting beds. We utilize high capacity, rubber tire, mobile cranes and rail cranes to move the finished product from the casting beds to storage areas and eventually to our fleet of trailers based on a customer’s delivery needs. Our in-house transportation department has all of the specialized equipment needed to deliver the product to the customer’s jobsite when needed without delay.

We have one of the highest capacity girder beds in the United States. The 500 foot long triple line girder bed is capable of meeting any of today’s girder production requirements.

Dura-Stress is an FDOT (Florida Department of Transportation) approved plant with a FDOT inspection office on site. The criteria to become FDOT certified are stringent. Our company has a FDOT and PCI approved quality control laboratory which self performs all testing required for the entire facility. Testing includes raw materials verification, stressing analysis, concrete testing, gradations and cylinder breaking.

We are proud to have been involved in the development of the precast concrete industry since 1949 and a charter member of the Precast Concrete Institute (PCI), which was chartered on June 18, 1954.
