Founded in 1960 by E.C. Babbert, E.C. Babbert, Inc. opened for business in Columbus, OH. In the early days, the company mostly installed septic tanks, pumps, and softeners. When the city of Columbus needed an enormous amount of concrete barriers for a downtown sport car race, E.C. Babbert was awarded the contract, placing the business on its road to big success. Now this family owned business, which has grown steadily over the years, manufactures just about any concrete product that is used below grade from its two plant locations, Canal Winchester, OH and Lancaster, OH.
E.C. Babbert and his sons, Chuck Babbert, President of Sales, and Ron Babbert, President of Production, are proud to manage the business and look forward to a bright future in the precast concrete industry.
Associations and Awards
The Babberts have been actively involved in the National Precast Concrete Association since 1970 and both E.C. and his son Chuck have served on the board of directors for the association. E.C. served as President in 1976-77, and was also awarded the Yoakum Award, NPCA's highest honor, for his company's leadership and inspiration in the precast industry.
Following in his father's footsteps, Chuck Babbert received this year's NPCA Yoakum Award to a standing ovation. This award makes the Babberts one of only four familys with multi-generational Yoakum Award recipients.
E.C. Babbert was featured as a Precast Pioneer in Precast Inc. Magazine March/April 2015 edition.
Both Babbert plants are certified annually through NPCA's plant certification process and are able to produce Ohio Department of Transportation products in addition to various other City products.
