The history of Shockey Precast began in 1896, when a master carpenter named Howard Shockey opened a wagon repair business in Winchester, Virginia. His 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 Shockey family established a ready-mixed concrete operation in the 1940s (sold in 2008) and a precast concrete manufacturing division in the 1950s, known today as Shockey Precast.
In early 2018, Shockey Precast was acquired by Metromont Corporation and now operates as a Metromont company. As part of the Metromont family, Shockey Precast continues to provide its customers an unparalleled combination of experience and expertise in the design, engineering, manufacturing, and erection of precast concrete. Together, Metromont and Shockey Precast have completed more than 11,000 precast projects across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
