For over 50 years, ULTRASPAN has been supporting precast producers improve their operations. We started by building simpler, smarter equipment with fewer components that used less material. That allowed producers to increase throughput and avoid downtime and costly maintenance hassles.
Over the years, we have worked hand-in-hand with precast producers to evolve our solutions. We are inspired and driven by customers to focus on what matters – equipment designed with simplicity in mind, that increases throughput, reduces downtime, and drives increased profitability. We collaborate with customers over the long-term to ensure they achieve the business results they seek.
In 2013, ULTRASPAN became part of the PROGRESS GROUP. With over 500 combined plants worldwide, manufacturing facilities in four countries, local offices in all continents, a complete product range, and more sales and customer service personnel than any other competitor, the Group continues strengthening its leadership in the industry. Our strength, experience, resources and commitment to the industry is our customer’s peace of mind for any project size.
