Fort Worth-based Speed Fab-Crete, a full-service general contractor and precast concrete manufacturer, has received the 2019 “Quality Merit Award” from the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) in recognition of scoring amongst the top 25 in the U.S. for quality production practices.

Speed Fab-Crete is one of only two Texas-based companies to be honored out of nearly 400 NPCA-certified plants across the U.S. This achievement ranks Speed Fab-Crete in the top 7 percent of all NPCA-certified plants.

The NPCA established its national Plant Certification Program in 1987 to ensure a consistent industry benchmark and a high degree of excellence among precast operations. Since 1951, Speed Fab-Crete has specialized in a structurally loadbearing, precast, high-strength concrete wall panel building system. Architectural panel applications and various veneer finishes, including a precast, thin brick system, as well as components/systems for FEMA P-361 safe rooms and ICC 500 storm shelters, are among the numerous options produced at the company’s 15-acre manufacturing plant, located at 1150 East Kennedale Parkway in south Fort Worth

“The NPCA’s quality assurance committee is very thorough in their annual plant audits, and the fact that we rank amongst the top 25 of all NPCA-certified plants in the U.S. is a huge honor and testimony to the quality of the precast concrete products manufactured here at Speed Fab-Crete,” said Carl Hall, CEO and director of plant operations at Speed Fab-Crete.
