In 1999 Rick saw a need for a local concrete precasting company to fulfill the needs of the explosive growth happening in Central Oregon. He made a plan and executed it. That was 17years ago. Today, his business has grown into a large full scale operation and is a well-known leader in concrete precast products in Oregon.
Rick has worked in the construction industry for over 40 years, you can be confident that he understands the needs of his customers. Rick’s idea of a ‘good day’ is when an idea is transformed from a proposal into a completed project.
Someone once said “Man thrives, oddly enough, only in the presence of a challenging environment.” Rick enjoys the daily challenges that this industry provides. When asked if a particularly difficult project can be completed his usual response is “probably.” No, is rarely used in Rick’s vocabulary.
One of the most challenging parts of the precast industry is maintaining the standards and requirements mandated by various organizations and government entities. Rick takes pride in adhering to the guidelines set forth and staying in compliance with those organizations and entities. Regularly our materials are being tested and checked in order to maintain the high quality of our products.
Rick and his wife Darla live in Terrebonne and enjoy traveling with their RV and spending time with their children and grandchildren.
When you hire Advanced Precast Products you can be confident that you have the industry leader working for you.
