HISTORY The Beginning... From a modest beginning as the manufacturer of concrete pipes sprang a major force in precast, prestressed concrete framing systems, correctional cell modules and utility structural systems.
1963:: The Lowndes family purchased Tindall Concrete Pipe Company, in Spartanburg, SC, which had six employees manufacturing concrete utility pipes.
1965:: The company’s product line was expanded to include additional underground utility units, with particular attention to manholes.
1967:: Tindall completed a new facility in Spartanburg and began manufacturing prestressed concrete framing system components.
The 1970s… Steady growth and the successful completion of noteworthy projects in the two Carolinas brought about the company’s first expansion of facilities.
1974:: The Spartanburg manufacturing facility was upgraded and expanded to meet increasing demand.
The 1980s… Strengthened administration, acquisition of Georgia production facilities and expansion to manufacturing facilities in Virginia highlighted a decade of burgeoning growth.
1983:: A new office building was constructed in Spartanburg to house the company’s growing engineering and administrative functions.
1986:: Tindall purchased two precast concrete production facilities in the metro Atlanta area, forming Tindall Concrete Georgia, Inc.
1988:: The Lowndes family formed Tindall Concrete Virginia, Inc., and established a new, state-of-the-art production facility near Petersburg. The company’s product line was expanded to include correctional cell modules.
The 1990s… A new corporate name, capital expansion projects in existing facilities and a new production facility in Mississippi capped a successful decade of well-grounded growth.
1990:: The South Carolina facility in Spartanburg introduced new product lines and added additional capacity.
1993:: The company initiated operations in Mississippi with a major Biloxi parking deck project.
1994:: Tindall opened a fully operational satellite facility in Biloxi, MS. With the opening of this fifth facility, the company had a total production area of more than 350,000 sq. ft. The Virginia production facility was upgraded and additional capacity added.
1996:: The Virginia facility received a second expansion to meet the increasing demand of the Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia areas.
1997:: Tindall Corporation was formed, uniting all Tindall entities under one legal, corporate name. The name change allowed a stronger identity in all three major market areas—precast, prestressed concrete framing systems, correctional cell modules and underground utility products. The Corrections Division was created for the manufacture of completely upfitted correctional cell modules.
The 2000s… From a position of strength, Tindall Corporation entered the twenty-first century resolved to continue providing its customers with the finest products, expertise and service to assist them in gaining a competitive advantage in their markets. This dedication has resulted in Tindall becoming one of the largest privately held precast companies in the U.S., with plants strategically located throughout the South.
2005:: On August 29, Hurricane Katrina battered Tindall’s Biloxi plant, rendering many employees homeless and causing millions of dollars of damage to equipment, finished products and the plant. Though facing unimaginable obstacles and impossible conditions, the Mississippi plant was back in production within three weeks of the storm, making up for lost inventory and production time while assisting neighbors thanks to the help of all Tindall divisions.
2006:: Construction began on a high-tech precast facility in Moss Point, MS, to replace the Biloxi plant.
2007:: The Virginia plant was allocated capital resources for a third expansion and capacity increase. Construction began in San Antonio, TX, on the newest division’s cutting-edge production facility. The new, state-of-the-art Moss Point plant opened for production.
2008:: Production of correctional cell modules began at the new San Antonio facility.
