This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Castlerock Precast in Pleasant Grove is responsible for dozens of projects throughout Utah —projects you’ve probably seen and just didn’t know. You can see their work on a trip to Cabelas and the Outlets at Traverse Mountain in Lehi, which is the giant retaining wall system on the side of the hill. 

To give an idea of the scope of what Castlerock Precast offers, these are 2,200 pound blocks manufactured to fit together to create beautiful and innovative retaining walls and stairs. The blocks are so massive they’re manufactured within a 50-mile radius of the territory where they’re installed, and owner Don Parker says this is a strong regional business. You’ll find the blocks used for landscaping, trail and park applications and commercial spaces.

The system was developed in Michigan in the late 90s. Don bought a franchise in 2001 and created Castlerock Precast, serving a territory between Bountiful and Santaquin. He spent many years as a steel fabricator, then a flooring contractor before he started precasting concrete and loves what he does, using all his experience.

This Pleasant Grove company runs lean and mean with 8 employees. Castlerock Precast has hundreds of walls throughout the valley and was once featured in a national bridge magazine for a wall they put in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
