Monarch Precast Concrete is a second generation privately held business that specializes in manufacturing precast concrete products for the construction industry. We service the commercial, municipal, residential and utility markets. The company was founded in 1949, and began manufacturing septic tanks for the growing Lehigh Valley and surrounding counties. The product line developed significantly over the years to include manholes, storm sewer products, packaged pumping stations, packaged meter chambers, utility and specialty products. Monarch is located in Allentown, Pennsylvania and services the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware.
Our manufacturing facility is situated on twenty-one acres of industrial property. There are two plants that total 37,000 square feet of production area. The newest plant was completed in August of 2003 and is a state-of-the-art facility. It houses a fully automated computer controlled batch plant with a two-yard high-speed TEKA turbine mixer. All aggregates are stored indoors in climate controlled bins with moisture probes to assure consistent quality mixes. The two plants have a total of eighteen cranes ranging from monorail style hoists to bridge cranes with capacity up to 30 tons. A fleet of eight forklifts, ranging in capacity from 8,000 pounds to 35,000 pounds, move the finished product to storage and shipment.
Monarch maintains a large up-to-date fleet of delivery trucks that are equipped with cranes for unloading and setting. Our largest crane truck has a capacity of 40,000 pounds. Our fleet of trucks ensures that our products are delivered to the job site in the most prompt and efficient manner possible.
We are a member of the National Precast Concrete Association since the 1960’s and participate in the NPCA certified plant program. Recently we attained the prestigious status of scoring higher than most precast plants participating in the program. We have a full time staff of Quality Control Technicians that are ACI Level 1 certified and all have attended the NPCA Production and Quality school. Our certified technicians perform daily checks for tolerance and test the concrete in our Concrete Testing Laboratory therefore assuring that our materials and products meet highest level of quality.
