The Conco Companies own and operate two rebar fabrication yards: Rochester, WA (roughly halfway between Seattle and Portland), and Benicia, CA. At these facilities, multiple grades of rebar are cut, bent, and fabricated to meet the exact needs of our construction projects. Our rebar is shaped into columns, wall segments, and other units for precise and easy installation.
Each facility keeps a sizable amount of raw material on hand, allowing uninterrupted production even during market shortages. In Northern California, we can furnish rebar for pickup or delivery from our facilities and provide installation services.
Our latest upgrade is in progress at our Benicia facility
Currently, we’re midway through upgrading the Benicia facility to better serve our customers. The largest upgrade will be the erection of two 70’ tall outdoor cranes that will assist the installation of pre-assembled columns and boundary walls. The outdoor cranes will replace our forklifts, allowing for safer handling and placement of rebar units.
In addition to outdoor cranes, our new equipment also includes:
- A flash welder used for fabrication of resistance butt-welded spiral hoops. These hoops are used to construct cast-in place-drill hole (CIDH) piling and large columns.
- An automated double bender that can make precision bends on fabricated bars without the need to manually handle the raw bar.
Conco increases efficiency with new tools and upgrades
Our latest upgrades help us fabricate rebar safely and complete work faster, cutting down the lead time to build elements. With less manual labor required to operate tools and machinery, Conco can place our field ironworkers where they are needed most, reducing delays and allowing us to meet commitments with higher efficiency.
