After Jeff VanHoose sold his precast concrete products business in August of 2007, signing a five-year non-compete agreement, he focused his attention on growing his Pour In Place Company. Selling at the top of the market and honoring the non-compete agreement, while also waiting out the recession to the best of anybody's guess, VanHoose decided to invest in late 2008 by building a Ready Mix Company as well as starting a Mechanical and Millwright Contracting Company, both being in full operation by mid 2009. This growth led to adding exceptional team members. VanHoose believed in his people and always had an outstanding team, but this time VanHoose set his mind on hand-picking the finest and most talented management team to fulfill a unique business plan he had always dreamed of accomplishing.
VanHoose decided to dive right back into the precast concrete business with obvious distinction in the marketplace. In late 2012 VanHoose broke ground on a new facility launching VANHOOSECO Precast, opening in early 2013, a Tennessee-based manufacturing and construction company specializing in utility precast concrete products. Other VANHOOSECO companies and divisions were soon to follow such as design build contracting, construction management and maintenance services, all with proven value engineered solutions.
VanHoose quickly re-entered the precast business, but came back as a much more diverse company. In 2014, VANHOOSECO patented EnvirOcast—a versitile precast concrete wall system comprising a High R-Value insulation for residential walls, as well as many commercial and industrial applications. EnvirOcast has doubled in revenue, and VanHoose expects it to have substantial increases year after year.
In late 2015, VanHoose was serious by deciding to invest north of 12MM to break ground on the new VANHOOSECO pipe plant as well as expanding by more than tripling the size of the VANHOOSECO precast wall plant to keep up with customer demands.
In 2016, the company patented EnvirOkeeper—an underground modular precast, pre-engineered, reinforced concrete in ground detention, retention, harvesting, and infiltration system designed for maximum efficiency and minimal environmental impact that can easily be outfitted with a wide variety of filter media and water treatment options. The key here is that the EnvirOkeeper system has many benefits and advantages over conventional storm water systems on the market.
With each patented product line, the VANHOOSECO group of companies takes a step closer toward Jeff VanHoose’s vision of intentional congruence, building a vertically integrated business model that is second to none when it comes to quality and service. Ultimately, building a multifaceted set of companies—a one-stop shop—that works on each phase of a project, from development to design build, through build out to CO is quite the accomplishment in such a short amount of time. VanHoose believes that a company is only as good as it’s team. With all that and a team with decades of industry experience that focuses on integrity along with quality and service, the VANHOOSECO group of companies are well on their way...
