Our Story

Precast HQ was born off the back of Phil and Guy working as a Main Contractor. They saw an opportunity in the market for a true customer service based precaster with shorter lead times and a true quality focus.

We aren’t the biggest, but we want to be the best. We have worked hard to build our team and recruit some of the most experienced people in the precast industry.

Precast HQ is dedicated to being in a class of its own. We accomplish this by:

  • Working to modernise the industry through technology-focused solutions
  • Delivering top-quality products
  • Bringing a fresh take on things, using energy and initiative
  • Creating a new level of customer experience by reducing lead times, building relationships and doing what we say we will, when we will
