 Con Cast Pipe, a manufacturer of precast concrete drainage products based in Puslinch, Ontario (just south of Guelph), has purchased Hy-Grade Precast Concrete in St. Catharines, Ontario.

Originally founded in 1948, Hy-Grade Precast Concrete will continue to operate under the Hy-Grade name and will become the third Ontario manufacturing facility for Con Cast Pipe.

Already a full service supplier to the sewer and watermain industry in municipalities across Ontario, the new acquisition will add product solutions to Con Cast Pipe’s service offering including modular buildings, utility vaults, highway and security barriers, as well as retaining, security and privacy walls.

“Con Cast Pipe’s purchase of Hy-Grade Precast Concrete will create exciting new growth opportunities that will benefit our employees and the communities in which we operate – Puslinch, Oakville and St. Catharines,” says Brian Wood, president of Con Cast Pipe, in a company release.

“The coming together of these two strong brands in the precast industry is a recipe for success.”
