Lafarge Precast recently purchased a Besser Vapor Generator (BC50-2S) for use in their plant located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The Vapor Generator was the first sale of a Besser manufactured curing system and will be installed in Lafarge’s main structural facility that produces precast elements for the Industrial, Commercial, Residential and Infrastructure markets in Western Canada.
[Besser’s] professional sales and technical staff were able to understand our requirements and develop a cost-effective state-of-the-art curing system for the task.
Jason Rabasse, CET, Sales Manager, commented, “Lafarge Precast contacted Besser with a request for proposal on a new curing system for our Edmonton precast prestressed bridge elements. From the start Besser took the time to listen and understand what our specific requirements were. Their professional sales and technical staff were able to understand our requirements and develop a cost-effective, state-of-the-art curing system for the task. We are looking forward to doing more with Besser in the future.” Lafarge Precast is a recognized leader in the marketplace for providing custom precast solutions tailored to their client’s needs.
