These individuals provide us with a young, dynamic team that will give us the longevity we need as we grow our business in the Southwest region -- Jim Lewis, Gate's director of Architectural Systems.

Gate Precast Co.’s Hillsboro, Texas, office has added three new team members to support a period of steady growth in the company's Southwest region. Michael Trosset is the new Southwest Division sales and marketing manager, while Trae Morton and Michael Campbell have joined the Estimating Department. The appointments continue a pattern of growth at the Hillsboro facility.

“These individuals provide us with a young, dynamic team that will give us the longevity we need as we grow our business in the Southwest region,” said Jim Lewis, Gate's director of Architectural Systems. This is especially important in the vibrant markets of Texas and Oklahoma, where the Hillsboro office has provided design-assist collaboration on such high-profile projects as the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Nordstrom store in The Woodlands, Texas, and Cook Children’s Medical Center South Expansion currently under construction in Fort Worth.

In his new position as sales and marketing manager, Trosset will educate designers, establish relationships with contractors, qualify potential projects, recommend new industry products, promote design-assist, handle estimating/budgets, manage marketing staff and create opportunities. He has worked as a project manager at Gate’s Kissimmee, FL, plant since 2009, and holds a bachelor’s degree in construction management from the University of North Florida.

Morton, prior to joining Gate, served as senior estimator at Advanced Architectural Stone Inc. for 15 years. Campbell began his precast industry career in 2012 at Gate’s Alabama plant, serving as a quality control lab technician prior to becoming a full-time estimator. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Huntingdon College.

Gate Precast Co.’s Hillsboro plant is among eight Gate manufacturing facilities that regularly engage in the design, engineering, fabrication, transportation and erection of architectural and structural precast concrete systems.
