U.S Ready Mix Concrete

The U.S. ready mix concrete industry is a $35 billion industry with 2,200 concrete-producing companies employing over 125,000 people. On any given day, the industry operates 65,000 concrete mixers supplying ready-mixed concrete to construct energy-efficient and long-lasting structures.

FIVE KEY ELEMENTS TO BUILDING WITH STRENGTH

Stands the test of time

Concrete structures are designed to last for centuries. Unlike other materials, concrete only gets stronger with time.

Sustainable

Concrete’s strength, durability and energy efficiency make it an environmentally friendly material—especially when you consider the entire lifecycle of the building.

Simple to use

If a material isn’t easy to use, it doesn’t matter how strong it is. Good thing concrete can be molded into any shape, size or design you can imagine.

Safe and strong

Building with concrete gives you a fire-resistant structure. When combined with other fire safety systems, you can exceed building requirements—instead of just meeting them.

Value that lasts

Concrete won’t rot, mold, rust or deteriorate. It’s energy efficient and virtually maintenance-free—which means the resources you invest now will last for decades to come.
