What happened?

To expand its geographic footprint and product portfolio, Fabcon Precast acquires BSD, a business based in Selkirk, NY and is a leading supplier of precast products in New England, upstate New York, NYC/Long Island, Northern New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.

Why is it important?

The BSD product line joins Fabcon's precast wall panel solutions and enhances Fabcon's position as the leading precast provider in the eastern part of the U.S. Fabcon will continue to operate out of the Selkirk, NY facility and plans to immediately expand production to add significant capacity for its wall products. 

"This acquisition represents our continued investment in the Fabcon business and growth strategy," said Mike Rafi, Fabcon's Chief Executive Officer. "The addition of the BSD's product line and its strategically located facility will expand our capacity for wall panels and our portfolio, which brings value to our customers."
