Wilbert Precast began in 1906 primarily manufacturing burial vaults. From 1906 to 1947, we were known under various names. As of 1948, we operated under the name of Spokane Concrete Vault Company. Later, our name changed to Spokane Wilbert Vault Company in 1961, when we became part of the Wilbert burial vault franchise.
Over time, our product line greatly expanded, and it became time for a name change once again. Wilbert Precast, Inc. is a clearer representation of our business. Although we produce nearly 4,000 burial vaults and related funeral products annually, there is much more to Wilbert Precast, Inc. We have become a regional supplier of a wide variety of precast concrete products with manufacturing facilities in Lewiston, ID and Yakima, WA in addition to Spokane. We can service our customers consistently and reliably anywhere in Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, Western Montana and beyond.
Our Lewiston plant is located at 2710 North 4th Avenue. We built a new facility in 1999 using our precast concrete building panels. We have been serving the Lewiston area for over 20 years, and look forward to producing innovative products in our state-of-the-art building for many more years to come.
In Yakima, we opened for business over 20 years ago. However, after doing business in various locations over the years, we bought Yakima Precast and consolidated operations July 1st, 2006. After purchasing 15 acres and constructing a new, high-tech precast plant at 38th near Ahtanum we moved in and began operations January 1st, 2008. With better quality control and efficiency, we will continue to serve our customers in Central Washington professionally.
In Wenatchee, we opened for Central Washington customers on May 1, 1999. While we will continue to serve the Wenatchee area from our other locations, we closed our Wenatchee branch in 2004. However, to keep supplying our customers, we are happy to provide the same great products and services as always from our other locations.
Over time, we have grown to provide a very diverse product line, manufacturing septic tanks, oil/water separators, grease traps, catch basins, dry wells, manholes, the Redi-Rock® retaining wall system, wall panels, steps, meter and valve utility vaults, parking bumpers and a broad variety of custom castings. The newest additions to our product line are light pole bases, window wells, and raised garden beds.
Although our name has changed many times over the years, and we have greatly diversified our product line, the ownership, management and philosophy of our company have remained the same. Quality products, outstanding service and commitment to excellence will always be our trademarks. We plan on serving you long into the future, just like we have for over 100 years!
