About Us

Waskey wrote the manual on precast innovation.

Founded in 1955, Waskey made its name in precast bridge construction, but today has evolved as a precast innovator providing cost-effective solutions to challenges across a multitude of industries. Waskey’s legacy of excellence is evident through its dedication to innovation, meticulous attention to detail, and its unmatched customer service. At the core of every successful Waskey project is its team of skilled, dedicated employees. Waskey utilizes its talented experienced staff to provide enhanced solutions in both the planning and execution phases of each project across all industries. Through continual expansion, innovation, and reinvention, Waskey has continually proved itself as a multi-faceted concrete solutions provider.

Although most of Waskey’s work is concentrated in Texas and Louisiana, you can see on the map below that our solutions have been used as far north as North Dokata, west to California and east to New York. Waskey’s Articulated Mats have been used from the Gulf of Mexico to the coast of Ghana.

The Waskey Story

In 1955, two Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development engineers, Roy Wasson and W.O. Pankey, combined parts of their last names to create Waskey. The two men invented the basic design for Waskey bridges, platforms, decks, and the apparatus for manufacturing them, receiving U.S. Patent 2,921,354. Durability, speed of construction and low cost drew the attention of road and bridge contractors from of the oil and gas industry, which needed reliable access to remote operations. Quickly, Waskey’s innovations became the benchmark for medium-span bridges.


Immediately, it became apparent that Waskey concrete bridge technology was perfect for building corrosion-resistant decks on pile-supported production and storage platforms used by the oil and gas industry. Within a span of a few years, these Waskey-built platforms dotted the Gulf Coast, inshore and offshore. Production platforms led to pump stations, generator stations, docks and wharfs, heliports, and compressor stations. Soon, when clients and engineers referred to any pile-supported concrete deck, they called it a “Waskey Platform.”

As contractors began to rely more on Waskey products to help them meet their deadlines, Waskey responded, expanding its product line to include accessories, such as DOTD barrier railings and pedestrian guard rails. Next, Waskey added high performance grouts, expansion joint materials, and sealants. Today, contractors are able to order a Waskey Bridge or a Waskey Platform “in-a-box.”



The oil and gas industry knew that Waskey’s manufacturing process created economical, match-cast, sealable panels. As cost savings, flood protection, and spill containment became a necessity for land-based industries, engineers customized versatile Waskey Platforms to meet the needs of the chemical and petrochemical industries. In addition to platforms, Waskey grew to manufacture beams and columns, pipe sleepers and supports, sumps and vaults, blast walls and other industrial products.

Today, Waskey’s ability to fabricate concrete products that meet the most demanding specifications allows engineers to design custom concrete products that, when Waskey was founded, were never conceived of being made with concrete. Waskey’s team of experienced Project Managers continues to push the boundaries of precast concrete.
