Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA's celebration of the 100th anniversary of ready mixed concrete in the U.S. continues its submissions for November with one of the Association's newest Producer members and one of the oldest company's in its Associate member roster - see below for their respective Web site links. This week's industry milestone: In 1987 work began on a 65-story office tower in Chicago that at 959 feet would become the world’s tallest reinforced concrete building when completed in 1990. Continuous placement of high-strength concrete for the 8 foot thick mat foundation required delivery of at least 24 yards of concrete every four minutes!

To have your company featured in this space in the coming weeks, please contact
