Concrete Pumpers – Are You Subcontractors?

by Robert Edwards, NBIS

Anyone who runs a business knows that one of the keys to the business’s success is the ability to foster meaningful business relationships. This is especially true in the concrete pumping industry. Since the concrete pumping industry has gotten so specialized over the years, the ability to foster these relationships is especially important; most customers will continue to hire your company to pump concrete if you perform the job safely, are on time and have good equipment.

NEW ACPA MEMBER BENEFIT ANNOUNCED— DO YOU NEED OPERATORS?

One of the most critical obstacles facing many concrete pumping companies is the challenge of finding qualified candidates to become concrete pump operators. In fact, in a recent survey of the membership, over 80 percent responded they had planned to hire between one and five operators in 2016, yet many of their pumps still remain idle due to the shortage of operators.
