For nearly 70 years, Spillman Company, located in Columbus, Ohio, has been a leader in the development of products for the precast and prestressed manufactured concrete products industry. Spillman Company was founded in 1948 by Robert L. Spillman. In the early years, the company specialized in splash blocks, parking curbs, stepping stones, lintel machines, and other drycast machine products. In December of 1957, William and Barbara Coons purchased the company. In 1958, the Coonses issued their first catalog, incorporating additional products such as burial vaults, steps, septic tanks and dry wells to accommodate the expanding precast market and demand for larger products. As the company grew, the demand for more space resulted in the construction of much larger offices and factory space. The additions allowed Spillman Company to enter the market for precast architectural specialty forms. The 1970s brought dynamic and tragic changes to Spillman Company. In late 1971, William Coons was stricken with a severe heart attack and died. Just 7 years later, Barbara succumbed to the long-term effects of cancer. In 1972, their eldest son Ted joined the company full time to serve as its leader. Spillman Company continued to develop new markets and products, including utility vaults, catch basins, and large drainage structures for underground applications. Spillman also was experienced in architectural precast and began producing self-stressing and free-standing structural forming products, including beams, columns, tees, piles, flat slabs and spandrels.In the last decade, the team has added to its expertise a wide variety of long-line self-stressing beds, tilt tables as large as 16’ x 45’, utility vaults up to 24’ x 8’, median barriers, traffic barriers, retaining walls, battery molds, and soundwall forms. Spillman is also know for its line of plastic rebar spacers, including its trademarked Plaswheel® line and its line of EZY-STRYP® magnetic holding devices. In 2018 Spillman merged with Afinitas company New Hampton Metal Fabrication. Their combined strengths make up the Afinitas Forming Systems Division, with operations in both New Hampton, Iowa and Columbus, Ohio.
Spillman continues to offer the most extensive line of wheel spacers under its Plaswheel® trademark. Plaswheels® are the most universally accepted spacer available as they can be used for both wire mesh and rebar and are molded in a wide variety of covers.
Spillman has been a trusted and active member of the precast concrete industry for decades. Together with New Hampton Metal Fabrication, they bring unmatched engineering know-how and experience to producers of a wide range of infrastructure applications.
