Headquartered in Seffner, Florida, Cast-Crete has nine distribution locations across the state of Florida to support its customers.

The company’s Chief Executive Officer Jim Connelly will continue to lead from the corporate headquarters. “As we embark upon a new chapter with the support of Monomoy, I am confident that we will continue to supply high-quality products that support our customers and realize significant growth opportunities for the business going forward,” said Mr. Connelly. “I look forward to building upon our historical success and leveraging Monomoy’s operational toolkit to help us continue to optimize and grow our business.”

Monomoy Partner Jaime Forsyth remarked, “Jim and his team have done a terrific job of building Cast-Crete into the industry leader. We are excited to partner with the team and continue its long history of attractive growth. Cast-Crete’s valuable customer relationships, scale and unmatched asset base should position the company to benefit from new housing demand in the Southeast for years to come.”
