Mid-States Concrete Industries ( has become the 15th member of AltusGroup ( and will market CarbonCast Enclosure Systems in the Midwest.

Both CarbonCast products use C-GRID carbon fiber grid as a shear connector to provide outstanding thermal efficiency and full composite action while maintaining the remarkable aesthetic flexibility of precast concrete.

“With more than six decades of precast experience, Mid-States has firmly established itself as a high-quality, innovative company that constantly seeks ways to meet the market’s demands,” said John Carson, AltusGroup executive director. “We’re excited about their ability to bring CarbonCast’s lower weight and insulation advantages to the metro Chicago market.”

In addition to the ability to deliver total structural building systems, Mid-States Concrete Industries also provides the engineering and project management expertise needed in today’s construction environment.

AltusGroup precast concrete manufacturers have installed more than 20 million square feet of CarbonCast surface area on over 400 structures since introducing the technology in 2004.
