The history of Shockey Precast and The Shockey Companies began in 1896, when a master carpenter named Howard Shockey opened a wagon repair business in Winchester, Virginia. Howard’s reputation for integrity and quality construction soon built a thriving residential and commercial contracting business.
From General Contracting to Precast Concrete Manufacturing
In the 1940s, Howard’s sons joined the business, and in 1947, the company became known as Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. The company established a ready-mixed concrete operation, Crider & Shockey, Inc., in the 1940s (which was sold in 2008) and a precast concrete manufacturing division in the 1950s, known today as The Shockey Precast Group. One of the first subcontractors to build precast parking structures in Virginia, The Shockey Precast Group established itself as a leader in the construction of parking structures, data centers, sports facilities, and office buildings.
