Norwalk Concrete Industries (NCI) is a regional manufacturer of custom precast concrete products serving the building, utility, heavy and highway markets in a six state area. This family-owned business has thrived over the years due to its innovative ideas, commitment to quality and excellence and their investment in the Norwalk community.
The company's products include privacy and security fencing, retaining walls, storm and sanitary sewer structures, highway barrier, utility vaults, stormwater treatment and detention tanks and large custom structures. Waste water treatment systems for residential and commercial applications and residential building foundations are sold primarily in Ohio. The Easi Set line of precast fabricated restroom, control and utility buildings are shipped to customers throughout the Midwest and Eastern United States.
NCI has made the most out of these difficult economic times. They have worked hard to expand their market and diversify their product line. One of their most interesting recent projects was a system of huts and an underground tunnel complex to create a training village for Soldiers at Fort Campbell, Ky. The project required a 90-day completion of more than 100 separate structures, including on-site installation.
