Together, We Elevate the Industry

We are proud of how far we’ve come as a leading source of precast concrete in the Midwest. Now, we find ourselves working on projects like the Como Park Animal Hospital in St. Paul, MN, where we designed, produced, and installed a total precast concrete shell in 2019.

Unlike many other projects, Molin converted the traditional construction to a total precast one, and winter construction din’t slow us down a bit. The initial plan for the Como Park Animal Hospital used a traditional structural steel framing. Molin drafted an alternative plan with completely precast and prestressed concrete products. The final design included precast columns, prestressed beams, insulated architectural wall panels, and hollow core floors and roofs. The Molin Concrete installation crew erected the Como Park Animal Hospital in less than four weeks, despite snowfalls and near-zero temperatures.

We wouldn’t be constructing total precast structures without you. From balancing the budget, high expectations, and tight deadlines, we understand construction is no easy task. We understand what is expected of you and we are here to help you succeed. We are confident we can elevate precast construction to new heights through our continued collaboration.

HELP US CELEBRATE OUR 125 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Read about our outstanding projects still standing today!

In 1905, Founder John G. Molin constructed five apartment buildings along Sherburne Avenue in St. Paul and named the last two after his daughters, Freda and Olga. At the time, Molin was still a new masonry contractor. For Freda, a building named after her would later inspire her to work for Molin Concrete Products herself. You can still see the apartments along Sherburne Avenue in St. Paul today.

In 1949, Molin Concrete Products became the masonry subcontractor, working alongside Donovan Construction, on what would be the largest apartment project in the history of the Upper Midwest. Meadowbrook Manor in St. Lous Park supplied the fastest growing suburb in Minnesota with 57 buildings in total. An exciting new product known as Flexicore precast concrete was used by Donovan Construction on the project. Upon completion of Meadowbrook Manor, Donovan Construction gave their entire Flexicore process to Molin. Little did Molin know that this would define the future direction of the company.

In 1994, we expanded the Malt-O-Meal food processing facility in Northfield, Minnesota. With four floors and 380,000 square feet, we finished the total precast structure four months ahead of schedule, thanks to cooperation from Malt-O-Meal. In response, the Prestressed/Precast Concrete Institute awarded Molin Concrete Products with the National Design Award in the “Industrial Facilities” category for “outstanding application of structural precast components.”

In 2016, Molin Concrete Products designed, produced, and installed architectural precast wall panels for multiple buildings at the new campus for the Minnesota Vikings Headquarters and Training Facility in Eagan, MN. This project required the installation of precast wall panels after several areas of projecting structural steel had been installed. Molin worked with the project team to resolve what some may have considered an unreasonable construction sequence to successfully complete the installation of the “tucked under” precast panels.
