County Materials Corporation is one of 28 Wisconsin-based companies recently named as a supplier for Foxconn Technology Group’s new 22-million-square-foot manufacturing facility planned for construction in Mount Pleasant, Wis.
County Materials pipe facilities in Wisconsin will manufacture and deliver concrete pipe and precast structures used to build storm water management systems on the project’s 787 acres of land. Hoffman Construction Co., of Black River Falls, has begun bringing in earth-moving equipment to prepare for excavation work and installation of the pipe and precast structures. A ceremonial ground breaking is expected within a few months.
Concrete pipe is a preferred industry choice for storm water management because of its exceptional durability, long lifespan, and high performance. County Materials’ pipe and precast components will be a fundamental part of Foxconn’s framework for utilities and infrastructure.
“We take pride in being a Wisconsin based supplier and family owned company specified for this historic project,” says County Materials president, Tim Sonnentag. “Our commitment to continuous improvement, technological advancements and trusted responsiveness has led to County Materials playing a pivotal role in the growth and development of our nation’s infrastructure.”
County Materials has its headquarters in Marathon, Wis., and employs a team of nearly 1,500 people in more than 40 locations and six states. Its products are utilized in infrastructure, transportation construction, commercial, agricultural, municipal and residential building and landscaping projects of all sizes. In addition to concrete pipe and precast products, other regional product divisions include ready mix and aggregates, hollowcore, prestress bridge girders, and numerous masonry and landscape lines.
