MSE Precast Acquires Verti-Block Retaining Wall Product Line

In late-February of 2022, MSE Precast excitedly acquired the British Columbia and Alberta licensing rights for the Verti-Block Retaining Wall system.

Verti-Block retaining walls are incredibly versatile wall system utilizing an array of design options to produce a structurally sound retaining wall. Verti-Block can used in a gravity wall design for smaller wall heights, a geogrid friction connection design for larger wall heights and a geogrid positive connection design when seismic performance needs to be considered. The 2’ x 4’ x 3’ Engineered hollow core block style provides a lightweight handling weight for efficient and economical transportation and production rates.
