Much like you, our founder, Don Jensen was looking for a way to support his family, so he started his Company in 1968. Since its founding, we’ve been supporting communities across Nevada, California, Arizona, Washington, and Hawaii.

Jensen Precast likely has an impact on your daily life. We build culverts to take water away from your neighborhoods, underground utility boxes to hold cables, and manholes to allow workers access to the sewers deep below the roads we drive on. And that’s just a small sample of what we do at Jensen on a daily basis.

When you work at one of Jensen’s many locations, you will enjoy the close relationships and camaraderie of a small company while being part of a larger, well-established, growing company.
