Who We Are

East Texas Precast, located in Hempstead, TX, is a PCI certified C4A plant that serves the state of Texas and western Louisiana. Founded in 1982 as a small structural precaster, East Texas Precast has continued to grow in size, production capacity, quality, and capability to provide architectural finishes. Similarly, in recent years, we have gone beyond being just parking garage experts and are now journeymen in control buildings, manufacturing facilities, and building shells. The current President/CEO, Randy Romani, has continued to elevate production capacities, community/client relationships, and employee satisfaction in his tenure. Meet Our Management Who We Are 1 We attribute our success to our small business values; fair and competitive pricing, direct communication, meeting schedules, and giving back to our community. Although our business has changed in our 32 years of operation we still believe that direct, consistent, face-to-face communication will help our clients achieve their goals in the most efficient way possible. Most importantly, we make it a top priority to meet or beat our schedule. But completing a quality project on time isn’t enough for us. It is also important for us to give back to our community. For us, success is all about the relationships we have built with others. Giving back to the organizations that have helped us as well as charities and local events is just another way we show the respect we have for those who have made us successful.
