29 September through 01 October 2018
For the first time Poraver® was present at the event ConcreteWorks 2018. The exhibition was organized by the National Ready Mix Concrete Association (NRMCA) and took place from 29 September to 1 October 2018 in National Harbor, Maryland.
Founded in 1930, the NRCMA is today the largest ready-mixed concrete industry association and representative in the United States. The NRMCA's mission is to provide exceptional value to its members by responsibly representing the entire ready-mix concrete industry through leadership, promotion, training and partnership and ensuring that ready-mix concrete is the building material of choice.
Every year since 2010, the NRMCA has welcomed at its ConcreteWorks show renowned producers, manufacturers, contractors, drivers and industry professionals from across the United States, Canada and New Zealand. Since then, it has enjoyed a steadily growing interest. This year over 1,000 participants took the opportunity to exchange views on the latest developments in the concrete industry. In addition to a conference with lectures on the subject of concrete, an exhibition was also attached to the event.
Poraver North America has been a member of the NRMCA since this year. For the first time we were represented with our own stand at the exhibition. Our sales representatives Traves Ogilvy and Daniel Modaour demonstrated the advantages of using Poraver® expanded glass to our visitors. As an aggregate in lightweight concrete, Poraver® enables considerable weight savings with excellent mechanical properties. We convinced our guests of this in a practical and tangible way: We proved to them that it is possible to lift a lightweight concrete block finished with Poraver® with just one finger.
The event was a great success for us. We are already looking forward to the next ConcreteWorks 2019!
