Jewell Opens Manufacturing Plant in Burnet, Texas

12/18/2017
Jewell, an Oldcastle Company and largest concrete products manufacturer in North America, opened a new state-of-art 23,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Burnet, Texas.

The new plant will service Central Texas, including the Austin and San Antonio markets, and is located on 15-acres with an on-site quarry providing raw materials.

Founded in 1936 with manufacturing operations based in Katy, Waco, Hurst, and Rosenberg, Texas, Jewell services the Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma markets as part of the Oldcastle APG network of companies. Jewell also operates seven distribution facilities in the areas of Houston, Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth.

“Jewell is pleased and excited to bring employment opportunities to the Burnet community with the addition of this new manufacturing business,” said Dan Hamblen, Jewell’s President. “This addition to our existing production facilities will serve a critical role in supplying high growth markets in the residential and commercial sectors throughout our region.”

The facility will be dedicated to Oldcastle’s market-leading concrete and mortar brands which include Sakrete, Techniseal and Amerimix, serving the DIY, commercial masonry and professional contractor markets.

“The new plant allows us to produce our product lines in a very safe and efficient manner and to continue Jewell’s growth in our respective markets,” said Pat Miller, Jewell’s Vice President of Operations.

“This new, strategic investment in Oldcastle APG/Jewell manufacturing is the latest example of our sustained commitment to masonry and the concrete dry mix industry,” said Tim Ortman, President of Oldcastle APG.

“The new facility will help support and grow our Sakrete, Amerimix and Techniseal brands, making them available on a wider scale and fuel continued growth in key markets. Masonry, a time tested and effective solution, remains a central cog in our Architectural Products Group portfolio capable of meeting the needs of today’s market few others can match,” he added.
