Staff Expansion Opens up New Opportunities in Utility and Communications Markets
Leesburg, FL, July 9, 2010 -- Leesburg Concrete, a leading manufacturer of precast concrete steps, ramps, and decking, as well as metal guardrails and handrails, is pleased to announce they have recently added two new staff members to support their growing business. The additions include Scott Ward, a talented carpenter with over 25 years of experience as a form carpenter for concrete, and Kevin Larrabee, a sales team member for the Florida region. Kevin's main focus will be to provide personal service and solutions for contractors in the Utility and Communications markets.
"We have identified a need for personal service for utility contractors and have therefore hired a talented representative in Kevin to serve these customers," stated Kirk Rouse, Vice President of Leesburg Concrete. "Also, there is demand for our newly licensed product SlenderWall®, which has required us to add a skilled form carpenter, and Scott has the necessary experience and skill to help produce these detailed architectural products. We are in negotiations with several design build firms that are currently showing a strong interest in SlenderWall. I'm happy to say the future is bright." Added staff has helped Leesburg Concrete enter this new market with an eye on several projects in the Florida and Georgia area.
SlenderWall is a lightweight, architectural precast concrete/steel-stud curtain wall system that is used for new construction, re-cladding, and renovation of large, multi-story commercial buildings. SlenderWall meets many criteria for green building strategies and use can contribute to LEED credits. A recent article in Concrete Products titled "Studcast Cladding Boosts Precast Benefits, Cost Savings" details how use of SlenderWall can reduce overall construction outlay.
Leesburg Concrete is interested in meeting the needs of commercial building construction and renovation projects. Our representatives are available to meet with you to discuss all project requirements.
