Founded in 1953 by Bill and Ruth Wilkinson the legend of what is
known today as Wilkinson Heavy Precast Limited began. Located on a
3-acre property with the family home, Bill and Ruth started with the
production of only septic tanks. For approximately 31 years Bill and
Ruth successfully manufactured and delivered precast septic tanks, many
of which are still in use today.
In 1984 when Bill passed on Jim Wilkinson took over the business
which at this point had already been well established. Shortly
thereafter, Wilkinson’s began producing large tanks and shipping them
all over Ontario. Once the Wilkinson name became known for large tanks,
our company and products continued to grow. As we continued growing we
found a need to relocate to larger facilities. In 1990 we moved from
our 3-acre location to our new state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot
building located on 20 acres in Dundas, Ontario. The relocation allowed
us to build a separate warehouse building for storage of our crane
trucks, yard equipment and forms.
In 2003 we constructed a computer controlled concrete batch plant
consisting of 200 tonne cement capacity and 400 tonne aggregate
capacity. This newly owned facility allows us to produce 40 cubic
metres of concrete per hour while continuing to supply consistent
quality precast to our customers.
In order to manufacture large products we have installed throughout
our production facility one 30 tonne, one 17 ½ tonne and two 15 tonne
overhead cranes that allow us to handle our products.
We know and appreciate that our customers depend on our quality of workmanship
and an understanding of their requirements.
Over the years we have gained a great deal of experience and expertise in many
We are pleased to share this knowledge and to serve you, our customer.
