Rowan EDC: Manufacturing Facility Tour of Power Curbers
Rowan County boasts many premier manufacturing employers. This year, we're inviting YOU to experience the behind-the-scenes magic! Around 20 local manufacturers are hosting tours for students throughout the week. What's more? Four of these companies are extending an invitation to our broader community! Established in 1953 in Salisbury, NC, Power Curbers manufactured the world’s first automatic curb machine. The original machines, extruders used in forming small curbs, are still manufactured as the Power Curber 150 extruder. Today, Power Curbers manufactures a variety of industry-leading concrete slipform equipment for curb and gutter, highway barrier, sidewalks, ditch liners, and agricultural applications. The best-selling 5700-D multi-purpose machine is contractors’ number one choice around the globe with units sold in over 100 countries.
