History

KIE-CON started in 1959 as Castcon, in Richmond, California. It was established to produce 24-inch square, hollow-core, concrete piling and precast concrete deck units for the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. One of the most significant Castcon projects was the fabrication of over 3,000 aerial girders measuring up to 98 ft. and weighting up to 140 tons each for the local mass transit system (BART), in Oakland, California. The Richmond casting yard also produced 54" Hollow Core marine piles for the Antioch Bridge, Antioch, California.

In 1969, Castcon established another casting yard in Pleasanton, California. This casting yard produced mostly land piles of various sizes to be used for building structures and infrastructures.

In 1981, the current Antioch plant, with water access, was established to replace the Richmond casting plant. Our water access can accommodate a 60-ft. wide barge. It is also during this period that Castcon officially changed its name to be known KIE-CON. From 1981 to 2005 the Antioch plant and Pleasanton plant produced piles, ranging from 12-inch square to 24-inch square piles for the local San Francisco Bay Area. KIE-CON has also produced piles that were barged to Hawaii. In 2005, both plant operations were consolidatined into the current Antioch casting yard.

Over the years, Kie-Con has supplied piles to marine wharf facilities, commercial building, local and federal agencies. Collectively, as Castcon and Kie-Con, we have cast well over 34.5 million feet of piling.
