Before Bob had a driver’s license, he was already operating heavy machinery and trucks around the precast. With the precast located in Bob’s back yard as a playground, Bob Jr. has seen the evolution of the precast industry from the last 50 years to where it is today.
The years spent watching his father and grandfather build the precast business instilled in Bob the importance of earning new customers and keeping customers for the long haul through hard work and dedication. Many J&R Precast customers have been customers of J&R for decades.
As Bob Jr’s sister, Rose also grew up with the precast business as her playground. Sure, the precast was the best place to play hide and seek in the neighborhood growing up. Learning every inch of the precast as a young child allowed Rose to also learn the business from the ground up from her grandfather and father.
Rose knows every aspect of the operation in depth and her responsibilities are numerous from ensuring customer service to order fulfillment and delivery schedules.
Rose is known for her patience, a sense of humor and creative thinking by listening to customer’s needs and translating those needs into what J&R Precast products can do to help them.
After 25 years in the car business, Bruce has learned a thing or two about people and relationships. Over the last 8 years, Bruce has taken his customer service and problem solving skills and translated them into the retaining wall block business.
Dedicated to working with each and every customer from the design phase and into construction, Bruce is meticulous about every detail. Even during the unexpected surprises that can arrive on any jobsite, from elevation problems to design changes, Bruce is our retaining wall specialist and is a Redi-Rock expert.
As with all the Katon children, Ashley has grown up around the cement products that make up her back yard. She is following in the footsteps of her great-grandfather, grandfather and father and continues the tradition of working and learning the precast business.
Ashley works to communicate and document current projects, as well as, assist in project proposals.
