Our Company

Building Creative Precast Solutions Since 1962

Our story began over 50 years ago when Larry Kerkstra started installing septic tanks for residential contractors. Under his leadership, Kerkstra evolved to deliver creative precast building solutions that help every project succeed.

Since then, we’ve stayed true to our industry standards and have become a strategic partner to our many valued customers. Our dedication to serve with integrity and excellence has guided us forward.

And today, we remain a solid company built on solid values. We now operate two state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Detroit, Michigan, allowing us to provide the highest level of personalized service across the Midwest.
