At ReCon’s Annual Producer’s Appreciation Event in Denver on February 22, Superior Concrete Products, a producer and licensee of ReCon Retaining Wall Systems received top honors. A designer, manufacturer, and installer of modular precast concrete fences, retaining walls, tiny houses, sound barriers, and buildings, Superior Concrete Products has been manufacturing heavy-duty ReCon Wall Blocks since 2010.
For more than seven years, Superior Concrete Products has been the supplier of ReCon Retaining Wall Systems for Central Texas. We are based in the heart of the DFW business corridor and our company has been designing, engineering and installing decorative precast fences, sound barriers and retaining walls for more than three decades. Some of our customers had projects requiring the use of heavy duty retaining wall systems that would safely contain massive amounts of dirt and rock, while fitting in seamlessly into the environment. ReCon blocks fit seamlessly into the Superior Concrete Products decorative precast concrete merchandise mix, and our considerable manufacturing capabilities made joining the ReCon team a natural expansion of our business. During the past few years, we’ve used ReCon blocks on numerous projects including holding back a hillside for the parking lot of a popular grocery store, containing a flood-prone creek in a drainage channel next to a residential neighborhood, and constructing a raised helipad for a busy hospital emergency room.Our ReCon business continues growing steadily, and we appreciate being named as a recipient of an award for such a high level of production.
Todd Sternfeld, CEO, Superior Concrete Products
Raul Rodriguez, vice president of manufacturing for Superior Concrete Products, was present at the event to accept the production achievement award for manufacturing and installing over 100,000 square feet of ReCon Retaining Wall Blocks.
Large ReCon Wall Blocks are durable and are specifically engineered to perform under harsh conditions, and are said to be an industry leader in gravity retaining wall systems. Built for use in unreinforced gravity retaining walls reaching heights of over 20 feet, ReCon retaining wall blocks improve the natural surroundings wherever they are fixed. Considered a property value improvement, ReCon Blocks are available in five unique textures including: limestone, granite, rustic rock, traditional old-world blocks with chamfered borders, and weathered edge stacked stone.
Each year we recognize producers who have achieved a high level of production. Superior Concrete Products sold and installed more than 101,000 square feet of ReCon blocks. To put this achievement in perspective, Superior has manufactured, shipped and installed more than 18,900 ReCon Blocks. Or, to put it another way, that is more than 750 semi-truck loads of ReCon product shipped. Any way you look at it, that is a lot of product, and deserves recognition.
Stan Hamilton, President, ReCon Retaining Wall Systems
“The entire Superior team worked together to manufacture, deliver and install our ReCon products,” Sternfeld said. “At Superior Concrete Products, we don’t shy away from reaching for high goals. In 2018, one of our production goals should be to manufacture and install another 100,000 square feet or more of ReCon Retaining Wall Bocks.”
