In 1975 Coreslab Limited entered the precast/prestressed, concrete industry with the purchase of a hollowcore manufacturing operation in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Throughout the late 70's and early 80's this operation evolved into a premier producer of hollowcore slabs and related precast concrete products servicing both Ontario and the North-Eastern United States. In 1987, after a partnership restructuring, a newly invigorated Coreslab initiated an expansion strategy that continues to this day.
In early 1988, Coreslab purchased its first structural facility in Phoenix, Arizona, followed later that same year by Austin, Texas. Further growth occurred with purchases in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (1990), Miami, Florida (1992), Tampa & Orlando, Florida, and Atlanta, Georgia (1993), Los Angeles, California (1995) Thomaston, Connecticut (1997), Columbia, South Carolina (1999), and Conway, Arkansas (2000).
In 1994, the corporate structure was expanded to meet the pace of growth. Coreslab International Inc. was established and corporate headquarters were moved to new offices in Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada.
In 2003 the Burlington, Ontario plant outgrew its original location and the operation was re-located to a new state-of-the-art facility in Dundas, Ontario.
December of 2004 provided the company with perhaps it greatest challenge to-date; the purchase of seven operations in the central United States. These include: Albuquerque, New Mexico; Indianapolis, Indiana; Kansas City, Kansas; Marshall, Missouri; Omaha, Nebraska; Tulsa, Oklahoma and a second plant in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Today Coreslab Structures, consisting of 18 precast/prestressed concrete production facilities, stands as a major supplier in the structural, architectural and hollowcore markets in both Canada and the United States.
Through selective future growth, Coreslab Structures will continue to better service new and existing markets by restating the fundamental principles that have contributed so much to its success:
