Heldenfels Enterprises’ President Fred Heldenfels IV announced recently that his company has purchased the Central Texas prestress concrete plant from Heldenfels Construction Materials Inc. and Heldenfels Brothers Inc.
Located on Interstate Highway 35 six miles south of San Marcos, the plant, built in 1982, is expected to mote durn double company sales.
Heldenfels Enterprises Inc. currently employs approximately 60 in the production of precast/prestressed concrete for the construction industry. The amount of the purchase was not disclosed.
The company plans a fast-track start-14) for the plant, which die previous owners shut down in December 1995. Production will start in July on three major projects already obtained for the plant’s backlog, including bridge beams for the President George Bush Tollway between North Dallas and Fort Worth and roof panels for the Samsung Semiconductor plant in Austin.
Employment at the second plant will add between 50 and 60 jobs, bringing
the company total to more than IOO employees.
“Serving South Texas with quality materials and dependable construction has been a family tradition since 1909,” Heldenfeld said. “The San Marcos acquisition helps us continue this tradition and achieve one of our strategic objectives by expanding our precast markets statewide,” he said.
Vice President Kuit R. Schriefer repents that M. Doug Fellas, San Marcos plant manager since 1988, has been hired to oversee operations for Heldenfels Enterprises.
Schriefer also anticipates rehiring other key plant employees from the area. Fellers is a resident of New Braunfels.
Heldenfels Enterprises Inc. is a successor to the family-owned business founded in 1909, a partnership between F. W. Heldenfels Sr. and C. A. Heldenfels, known as Heldenfels Brothers. Originally a lumber and budding materials business, the firm constructed wooden cargo ships during World War I, began dredging shell after the war and for decades served as one of Texas’ leading highway and bridge contractors.
Their precast/prestressed concrete operations have helped build notable projects such as die John F. Kennedy Causeway Bridge to Padre Island, the Homeport Pier at Naval Station Ingle
side, the new IH-35 overpass in San Marcos, commercial structures and parking garages for hotels, hospitals, office complexes and shopping trails in several Texas cities, including Corpus Christi, Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth and Laredo.
Heldenfels Enterprises today produces precast/prestressed concrete for Texas’ highway, marine/industrial and commercial markets as both contractor and supplier, helping to build some of the state’s largest bridges, prisons, piers, plants and parking garages.
