The 2022 PCI Production Workshop, on forming, was held in Milwaukee, WI, on October 18th-20th. In attendance were over 60 individuals representing 20 precast producers from around North America.
Day 1 consisted of 8 speakers at the Pfister Hotel, including Jim Miller of International Concrete Products. The speakers included QC Technicians, Carpenters, Plant Managers, and Production Leaders, along with 40 and 50 year veterans sharing best practices on how to produce architectural precast concrete.
Day 2 consisted of a plant tour at ICP. One of the attendees stated, “This was my first PCI event and I am humbled with the amount of knowledge in attendance. It was great to know that other producers face the same problems we have and share some solutions – I’m definitely going to have a talk with our management and come back next year!” Another attendee said, “It was my first tour of another precast company. The plant was impressive, and brought out some new ideas from our group.”
Randy Wilson, PCI’s Director of Architectural Services summarized the event by thanking all the workers of ICP for hosting the event and by stating, “Nothing better than bringing the best and brightest together and listen to them share ideas, war stories and solutions!”
