Lonestar builds headquarters and Plant, featuring Easi-Set Buildings on a Greenfield site
MIDLAND, VA — Easi-Set Worldwide, a subsidiary of Smith-Midland Corporation (SMID) licensed producer update. Lonestar Prestress Manufacturing Inc. in Bellville, TX, has been settling into its new 21-acre site after building an 85,000 s/f manufacturing facility, with four bays up to 700-feet long and a separate 40’ x 100’ headquarters. Lonestar is the premier static cast, prestressed concrete pole and Easi-Set Building producer in the Southwest. The company is one of 14 Easi-Set precast concrete building licensed producers across North America. According to SMID, it was only natural that Lonestar would highlight its precast concrete building capabilities by using an Easi-Span Building for the headquarters and including five Easi-Set Buildings within the manufacturing facility. The precast concrete buildings were chosen for their strength, durability and affordability. “I have never seen an Easi-Span Building used as a headquarters, and I have not seen Easi-Set Buildings incorporated into a structure in such a way,” said Art Miles, president of Easi-Set Worldwide. “It is a stunning facility and very thought out to give Lonestar the space it needs now and room to grow. Lonestar has showcased its manufacturing talents and its thoroughness as engineering professionals, and the quality of this team’s work shows in every aspect of the facilities and the site.”For 25 years, Lonestar operated in a residential area of Houston that was not conducive for an expanding manufacturing business. Brad Boyer, PE, president of Lonestar, had a vision for making Lonestar’s manufacturing process more efficient.
