Mississippi Promoters in Action on Multiple Fronts

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Mississippi Concrete Industries Association (MCIA) has recently spurred three groups to reach out to the marketplace in Mississippi and enact change in favor of concrete pavement, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Amy Miller. The groups are being headed by MCIA Executive Director Harry Lee James and Grace Construction Products Field Services Representative Warren Sawicki.

As a way of kicking off the initiative, training sessions were held in the three respective regions. Miller and Tim Cost, a senior technical service engineer from Holcim, facilitated the discussion and training on the given market segments. "This was the first major step in pulling our industry together to pursue opportunities available to us, particularly in parking lots," Sawicki said. "Taking a greater share of the market will be a lot of hard work, but working together can make a big change in the overall concrete business. The dynamics of the market allow our product to be very competitive when the designers, owners and contractors are armed with the correct information. Our job is to deliver that information and push for change. I am excited to be part of this initiative."
