The 23-acre Nottingham plant was originally owned and operated by New England Precast. Shea Concrete acquired the company in 1999 – along with the employees and locations in Amesbury, MA and Nottingham, NH. Shea closed the 50x100-foot Nottingham plant in 2008 after the economy faltered. Increased demand for the company’s products coupled with the improvement of the economy created the need for another production plant.
