Purchase of Can-Am Precast Products will position Stubbe’s closer to the agricultural markets in Huron and Perth counties
CENTRALIA – In a move the company says will give a much-needed boost to its agricultural precast production capacity, Stubbe’s Precast has bought the assets of Can-Am Precast Products Ltd. of Centralia.
The purchase positions Oxford County-based Stubbe’s closer to the agricultural markets in Huron and Perth counties and gives it access to the U.S. market in Michigan and Ohio, Stubbe’s said in an announcement posted on its website.
The company said its goal is to continue producing agricultural precast product at the Centralia location without interruption.
Can-Am Precast Products, formerly a sister company of Middlesex Concrete Forming, manufactured hog and beef slats, feed bunks and bunker silo walls at its plant in South Huron.
A family-owned business, Stubbe’s Precast was founded in 1982 by Herbe Stubbe, who started by designing and manufactured precast concrete hog feeders.
The company expanded into commercial and residential markets in 2001 with the introduction of hollow core flooring systems. In 2010, Stubbe’s started manufacturing columns and beams.
Stubbe’s precast concrete is produced at two manufacturing plants with more than 340,000 square feet of in-door production.
Outside of precast concrete, Stubbe’s operates a Redi-Mix plant in Southwestern Ontario and a bulk cement operation with a rail terminal in Princeton, Ontario.
