Our Mission

Working with engineers, architects, and contractors, Sanderson Concrete has built a reputation for providing CONCRETE SOLUTIONS to our clients. We are the experts and we can help.

Architects, Masons, and General Contractors come to Sanderson Concrete for our custom capabilities and quality precast concrete. We have earned our reputation as the go-to precast concrete company for challenging custom projects and landscape site furnishings.

Construction schedules can be extremely time sensitive. With changes and modifications often made on the fly, contractors and architects know that Sanderson Concrete’s local fabrication, long experience in all facets of precast concrete manufacturing, and diverse product lines make us the ideal partner in bringing projects to completion on time and on budget.

 

Knowledge is Power

Our team consists of the most experienced and knowledgeable concrete people in the industry. More importantly, we know when and where to get help. Our partner engineers, technicians, and suppliers along with long-time connections with the National Precast Concrete Association allow our team to help make each and every customer interaction a great experience for both sides.

Custom is Our Favorite Word

Each of our 3 main product lines offers standard products and finishes, but it is our custom capabilities that make Sanderson Concrete’s stand out, giving clients the flexibility and unrivaled choices in precast concrete products for the construction industry.

Not sure it can be done in precast concrete? Just ask! We’re not ones to shy away from a challenge – but we know our limitations and believe that it’s always better to help our clients find a precaster who is more suited to their particular project. If we can’t make it for you, we probably know who can, and would be more than happy to introduce you to a fellow precast concrete manufacturer who we trust and know will have your best interests at heart.

We Love Working with Architects and Designers

While we produce many standard products for the building and landscape industries, custom architectural precast concrete is where we shine – surrounds, wall panels, arches, signage and public art – this is why CUSTOM is our favorite word.

We have been producing custom and architectural precast concrete with architects and designers for over 30 years. We have built our reputation and experience in our industry one project at a time and we approach every new project is approached with enthusiasm and attention to detail. if your next project idea is based on something you have stumbled on in your travels or your search for ideas online, contact us. We have almost definitely made something similar before and we are constantly keeping up with the latest technologies in our concrete world.

From Design and Prototyping to Mock-ups, Samples, and Final Delivery

We make our own moulds in-house and control every aspect of production in our 25,000 sq. ft. production facility. Our in-house mould shops offer fast turnaround on custom forms and form modifications. Our long-standing relationships with our partner suppliers ensure our clients the highest standards when it comes to our formwork and formwork is the foundation for successful precast. We have complete steel fabrication and finishing carpentry shops and are capable of in-house rubber formwork as well.

We Provide Concrete Solutions to Real-world Challenges

Whether it’s a pair of 12′ concrete salmon for a public plaza or custom glass polished pavers on an extremely short timeline – we have been there, done that. See some of our case studies for concrete examples of some of our more challenging projects.

From preassembled picnic tables delivered on-site in record time, to thousands of custom pavers to match a historical colour blend from the 1970’s, concrete is an amazing material and we love working with it.

History & Culture

Founded in 1929 by the Sanderson family in Vancouver, BC – Sanderson Concrete moved to North Vancouver where the company established itself as a manufacturer of sumps, manholes and landscaping products such as patio slabs and small decorative planters.

Svend Arntorp was hired in 1986 to run the company. An engineer, Svend’s experience in the concrete industry helped set the long-term vision for Sanderson Concrete and in 1988, Svend purchased the company and was joined by his son, Jan, in Sales and Estimating.

Through the 1990’s Sanderson Concrete’s landscape division expanded to include bollards, picnic tables, benches and drinking fountains – and a greater focus was placed on custom and architectural precast.

Svend retired in 1994, eventually selling the company to Jan, who remains deeply involved in the company and retains his love for challenging custom projects.

Sanderson Concrete’s expanding landscape and architectural concrete divisions required a move to a larger plant in 1997.
