What is the history of your company?
“I’ve been in business for 15 years as the founder and owner of F.E.C. Company, where I am a general contractor. However, I am expanding into a new business which allows me to express my creativity more freely, CAST Elements is what I’ve coined it. We custom-design and manufacture concrete countertops, furniture and unique creations and incorporate reclaimed wood, steel, glass and other unique products into creative one of a kind items.”
Describe the photo you’ve featured.
“The demand for cast pieces has grown so rapidly that we’re eventually expanding into a showroom. I want to feature items that range from utilitarian, such as sinks and countertops, to decorative pieces such as furniture and wall hangings. There are many intricate details that go into the pieces, and a showroom allows us to have examples for clients to see. We manufacture concrete elements and furnishings for outdoor living areas as well as interior areas. From tables, fireplace elements and fire bowls; to benches and wall art, we want people to see the full line and scope of products.”
What’s on the horizon for your company?
“We are developing a website for an online store. We’re going to produce both custom pieces and standard pieces. All standard pieces will be available on the website for online orders. Custom furniture orders typically run up to six weeks, where as slab table tops, concrete countertops and sinks, for example, can be produced in a week or so. We work very efficiently to accommodate all of the design needs of our clients.”
Are you still involved in the general contracting side of your business?
“Yes, I am still very much involved in running the overall company. However, I’ve got great employees who run the day- to-day operations. Because CAST elements is an approach that uses common building materials to create special items for homes and businesses, it’s a natural segue and easy transition. This permits me to continue to work in my profession of construction but allows me to expand into growing creative markets.”
