Hi-Way Concrete Products was formed in 1954 by James Vicino Sr. and his brother Rocco Vicino. Hi-Way started the hard way with a hand tamp machine that could output approximately 500 units a day. Starting from scratch, James and Rocco would shovel aggregate into the mixer and then transfer mixes to the block by shoveling it into the machine, tamping, and then unloading. Blocks were then stacked by hand outside for curing.
In 1956 they bought a semi-automatic two at a time machine and a fork arrangement to unload the block and utilized a hand dolly to move the block in and out of a kiln.
In 1961 the first Besser machine was introduced purchasing a reconditioned Besser V3-M. At that point, Hi-Way Concrete was officially a block manufacturing operation.
In 1969 -James’s three sons James Jr, Francis, and Robert that were in the business purchased the business. In 1975 the company purchased a Besser V3-12 block machine and continued to automate the manufacturing plant to include a semi-automatic cuber, block splitter, and mixer to advance the business into the next generation.
Hi-Way Concrete has continued to invest in its future and advancements in technologies to offer its customer’s the highest quality concrete products. The company advanced to manufacturing the Keystone Retaining Wall System in 1995. Keystone has evolved over the years and continues to offer the best structural concrete retaining wall systems on the market.
Hi-Way Concrete moved to third-generation ownership in 2004. Current ownership has made significant advancements to its manufacturing equipment allowing the company to meet the growing need for products to support the landscape market. Hi-Way Concrete now offers versatile and stylish landscape and do-it-yourself products, such as patio stones, edgers, and outdoor living element designs.
