In 1905 Dan Trippear opened Automatic Wilbert Vault Company, Inc. in Tacoma, Washington.  The company primarily served area cemeteries with concrete vaults, marker bases, and related products.

In 1980 third-generation owner Glenn Colbert added a new precast division to serve the landscape and architectural precast business.  This division, known as Puget Sound Precast, has been growing and expanding ever since.  From landscape products such as commercial and residential planters, picnic tables, curbs, trash receptacles, and benches, to architectural products like stairs, landings, caps, sills, counter-tops, as well as artistic renderings and displays, and more, Puget Sound Precast is a locally owned, 5th generation family business, whose quality products and services, competitive prices, and consistent family ownership keep it going strong right into its second century.

The strength of precast concrete gradually increases over time.  Other materials can deteriorate, experience creep and stress relaxation, lose strength and/or deflect over time.  The load-carrying capacity of precast concrete is derived from its own structural qualitities and does not rely on the strength or quality of the surrounding backfill materials. –NPCA  Website
