EPHRATA, PA. – Effective January 1, 2018, Weaver Precast and Superior Walls by Weaver Northeast have experienced an ownership change. The company now includes Doug Pfautz and Janessa Weaver as partners with Gary Weaver, the original owner of the companies.
“As we enter our 60th year of business, I’m proud and pleased to have Janessa and Doug join me as partners,” says Gary Weaver, president and CEO of Weaver Precast and Superior Walls by Weaver Northeast. “This is the first step in a multi-year plan to transfer operating and ownership responsibilities to these two very capable individuals. The future of our company looks extremely bright with Janessa and Doug at the helm.”
Doug Pfautz, director of operations of the company, has been with Weaver Precast for 20 years. He has served in various operational, sales and customer service roles. Janessa Weaver, daughter of Gary Weaver, has been with the company for 10 years. With the ownership announcement Janessa will be transitioning into the role of director of sales at the company.
“Weaver Precast was our first licensee for Superior Walls in 1986 and remains a strong player in a very active geographic market of the country,” says Keith Weller, vice president and CFO of Superior Walls of America. “We’ve been in business as the innovator of precast concrete foundation system for more than three decades. During each of those years the people at Weaver have efficiently served the needs of builders while growing their business.”
Weaver Precast is located in Ephrata, PA and employs 60 people. The company services southeastern Pennsylvania along with parts of Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia. The company purchased the Weaver Northeast territory in 2012. This area consists of the Hudson Valley in New York, along with Connecticut and Rhode Island, plus parts of Massachusetts and Vermont. All Superior Walls precast foundation products are produced at the plant in Pennsylvania and shipped to location, where they are installed by crews based in each territory.
“Our company started in 1958 when my father and grandfather, Charles W. Weaver and Luke S. Weaver, founded Charles W. Weaver, Inc., a residential masonry contracting firm based in Lancaster County, PA,” says Weaver. “The company grew continuously, and in 1985, a newly-established Weaver Precast joined Weaver Masonry. This allowed us to re-enter the residential construction market. The very next year Superior Walls became the standard foundation solution for many builders because it was the only foundation system that arrived at the jobsite ready to install and with insulation and studding integrated into the wall. We saw the future with that product and we’ve never looked back.
The company manufactures the only foundation to have earned the NGBS Green Certified Product designation and has precast concrete system licensee manufacturing operations throughout the United States and Canada.
Products are pre-engineered and custom manufactured in an indoor production facility, eliminating any on-site soil contamination such as the form oil used for poured walls. No on-site sprays or bituminous coatings are required to make the walls damp-proof. The panels are delivered directly to a jobsite where certified crews install the precast wall panels.
Since Superior Walls panels are engineered and manufactured with insulated concrete studs, Superior Walls reduces the amount of materials used to build a structure, including wood and concrete, and reduces the carbon footprint of a new home or commercial facility’s construction process.
