Published: 29 March 2007

Hanson Pipe & Precast, a division of Hanson PLC, one of the world’s leading heavy building materials companies, today announced its plans to build a new facility on its Chesapeake, Va. site. The 62,000-square-foot expansion will help Hanson meet growing demands for infrastructure products in the area, which Hanson currently serves out of seven facilities in the state.


The $16.9 million expansion will be a state-of-the-art, fully automated facility expected to open in December 2007. Several employees transferred from the existing facility will produce circular and elliptical reinforced concrete pipe ranging in diameters from 12 inches to 72 inches.
