Welcome to Quick Crete

Over the past 25 years, Quick Crete has remained a family owned and operated business. We value our customer loyalty and we like to think alot of that loyalty comes from the way we treat people. At Quick Crete we are committed to providing the highest standards of excellence both in product design and service.

T

hroughout the ages, in towns and villages large and

small, the gathering place has remained a cultural cornerstone -- and the bench has been its focal point. Town squares, plazas and courtyards the world over have all served to foster a sense of community and belonging. The lively exchange of ideas and information. Quiet reflection and thought. Or simply sitting back and watching the world go by. If you think about it, what other outdoor site furnishing is as personal or interactive? As architectural styles have evolved, so has the design of the bench. Today Quick Crete is proud to offer its most extensive and diverse precast concrete bench collection to date, spanning a gamut of styles, sizes and finishes. Choose from the elegant lines of the Classic Collection to the bold

modern look of our Contemporary Collection. Or, for the latest in cutting edge technology and ergonomic design, our exciting new Quantum Collection is now available. As always, our staff designers and mold craftsmen are on hand to assist you in every way possible. And our fleet of crane equipped trucks ensure prompt and safe delivery. Precast concrete benches by Quick Crete. Built to last a lifetime, and then some.
