Smith-Midland Signs $6.6 Million Contract with North Carolina DOT
Largest Contract in History of Reidsville, NC Plant
MIDLAND, VA – May 10, 2022 – Smith-Midland Corporation (NASDAQ: SMID), a provider of innovative, high-quality proprietary and patented precast concrete products and systems, announced today that its Reidsville, North Carolina Plant has signed the largest contract in its history to produce precast concrete soundwall and J-J Hooks concrete barrier for a North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) project.
The $6.6 million contract for a section of the new Interstate 74 Northern Beltway around Winston-Salem in Forsyth County, NC, will require over 330,000 square feet of soundwall with an ashlar stone finish on both sides of the wall along with more than 850 precast soundwall columns, as well as more than 31,000 linear feet of J-J Hooks concrete barrier. Production has already begun on the J-J Hooks barrier and will begin on the precast panels and columns this fall.
“The scope of this project is what we envisioned when we built the Reidsville, North Carolina plant in 2019. At 15,000 square feet, this facility has more capacity to take on contracts like this one and we look forward to securing more, larger contracts in the future,” said Ashley Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Smith-Midland Corporation.
The General Contractor for this project is Webber, LLC, a division of Ferrovial Construction U.S., which is based out of The Woodlands, TX.
Smith-Midland develops, manufactures, licenses, rents, and sells a broad array of precast concrete products for use primarily in the construction, transportation, and utilities industries. Management and the board own approximately five percent of SMID stock, aligning with shareholder values.
