March 2, 2021 | ALBANY, MN – Wells Concrete, one of the largest precasters in the United States, has updated its organizational structure to provide strategic strength, while also allowing for regional independence. Centralized functions of the business such as finance, HR, marketing, engineering design and IT will be managed by Corporate Services, while each region of the company and its operations will be led by a divisional president and COO.
