Speed Fab-Crete Named Fort Worth 2011 Small Business of the Year 

Speed Fab-Crete Design-Build General Contractors has been selected the 2011 Small Business of the Year by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. The award was announced at the recent Fort Worth Mayor’s State of the City function, an event annually spearheaded by the chamber. 

Speed Fab-Crete, a 60-year-old Texas construction industry leader, was a finalist for a second consecutive year in the category of companies with 51 to 150 employees. Despite a lackluster economy, Speed Fab-Crete has maintained its annual work force of about 100 employees, half of whom live in Fort Worth.

Along with an on-site visit of the company’s office and facilities, the chamber’s judging criteria for the awards included: business growth and performance; sound business strategies and practices; customer service; innovate business approaches; community involvement and contribution and employee relations.

Along with being a Fort Worth-based general contractor, Speed Fab-Crete also operates a precast concrete manufacturing plant, whose products include 6-inch-thick concrete wall panels for buildings, highway retaining walls and modular, arched bridges. The latter two meet TXDOT specifications. With an 8-inch-thickness, the concrete wall system recently won approval by FEMA for construction of community public shelters, capable of withstanding maximum winds of 250 miles per hour.

Speed Fab-Crete’s manufacturing facility also is a certified plant by both the Architectural Precast Association and National Precast Concrete Association for meeting highest industry standards. The plant consists of 130,000-square-feet of casting beds and a new state-of-the-art Voeller batch plant with two mixers and capacity for three different cements.
