Established in Ogden, Utah, Oldcastle Precast - Amcor opened its Colorado operation in 1968 to meet the precast concrete demands of US Communications better known now as Qwest Communications. Since 1968 we have expanded our product lines to provide precast structures for the utility, highway, residential, commercial and government entities throughout the state of Colorado.
In 1978, Oldcastle Inc, a subsidiary of CRH plc, a leading international manufacturer and supplier of building material, acquired the 5 Amcor plants in the rocky mountain region of Idaho, Utah and Colorado. Today with more than 80 locations, Oldcastle Precast is the largest precast concrete manufacturer in the United States. Amcor Precast recently changed its local trade name to Oldcastle Precast Amcor.
To meet a growing demand and provide the highest quality product Oldcastle Precast expanded its Littleton site to 86,500 square feet.
