Bethlehem, Pa. (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Strescon Limited and Rocky Mountain Prestress have joined AltusGroup (altusprecast.com) to market CarbonCast Enclosure Systems in their respective market areas. Strescon is the first Canadian precaster to join AltusGroups ranks. The additions bring the total number of precasters in the organization to 16.

Both precasters will offer CarbonCast High Performance Wall Panels and CarbonCast Insulated Architectural Cladding to complement their existing structural and architectural precast wall products. Both CarbonCast products use C-GRID carbon fiber grid as a shear connector to provide outstanding thermal efficiency and full composite action while maintaining the remarkable aesthetic flexibility of precast concrete.

Adding two established, high-quality companies demonstrates the continuing acceptance of CarbonCast technology among precasters and the entire building team, said John Carson, executive director of AltusGroup. We see significant potential in Canada a strong precast market where thermally efficient walls can lower energy costs. And the addition of Rocky Mountain Prestress will increase the availability of CarbonCast products and specification sales in the Midwest and Mountain States. As the construction industry rebounds, AltusGroup is well positioned with a superior technology and an expanding group of dedicated well recognized producers.
