Page 15 of 56 September 2018 • 13 NEWS SCOPE PRECAST INFRASTRUCTURE BRANDING DEFINES PRECAST BUSINESS' BIGGER PICTURE A rebranding of Oldcastle Precast as Oldcastle Infrastructure, announced last month by Dublin-based parent CRH Plc, more accu- rately reflects product and service breadth. "Employees ensure millions of people have access to life's most vital resources: shelter, water, power, lines of communications and transportation," man- agement notes. "We transform communities from the ground up. Our vision for the future will be more consistently communicated through a unified look and feel for Oldcastle Infrastructure." "We want our new brand to reflect our strategic growth ambition, the products we make, and the positive impact they have on peoples' lives and their communities," affirms Oldcastle Infrastructure Pres- ident Simon Bates. "We also want to demonstrate we are a part of CRH, and can take advantage of the tremendous size and scale our parent company offers." Oldcastle Infrastructure has evolved from Idaho and Utah concrete pipe and precast operations that ushered CRH into the North Ameri- can market in the late 1970s. Oldcastle Precast built a platform well beyond concrete drainage products, gaining a foothold in a) envi- ronmental and communications markets through engineered vaults of increasing scale and complexity, plus specialized, filtration-geared structures or systems for federal, state and local agencies seeking stormwater runoff management, retention and treatment solutions; b) utility, corrections and hospitality markets through modular, pre-fin- ished building units; and, c) mainline transportation projects through prestressed bridge members. Oldcastle Infrastructure engineered the BioMod system recognizing stormwater management practitioners' increasing use of soil- and vegetation-based methods, while ensuring hydraulic efficiency plus structural and consistent pollutant removal performance.
