New Year, New Era

As we enter 2022, we’ve been thinking about how absolutely essential it is, now more than ever, to carefully consider the state of your organization as it moves into a new era. The last two years have disrupted life as we all knew it, and the coronavirus pandemic has created a new business landscape. The time to thoughtfully consider how your business navigates risk is now.

Habitat for Humanity: An Overview

In 2020, the ACPA was asked by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) to participate in a project to build concrete homes in the U.S. for Habitat for Humanity (HFH). The idea was for ACPA members to donate their services; the members of NRMCA and the Insulated Concrete Forms Association (ICFMA) would donate the materials for the homes. For tax purposes, all ACPA members would receive a “donation in kind” document in exchange for their services. The idea was presented and approved by the ACPA Board of Directors. Other than member contributions, there was no financial requirement of the ACPA.

CEMSTONE PARTICIPATES IN NATIONWIDE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY EFFORTS

Although not the first time Minnesota-based ready mixed concrete and concrete pumping company Cemstone partnered with Habitat for Humanity, a recent project did mark the beginning of an exciting effort from these two organizations: a home using insulating concrete forms (ICFs) for the entire structure.

ACPA MEMBERS PLAY BIG ROLE IN CIM AUCTION

At January’s annual Concrete Industry Management (CIM) auction at the 2022 World of Concrete, a concrete pump stole the show. ACPA manufacturing member company Alliance Concrete Pumps, along with NorCal Kenworth and Kenworth Truck Company, donated a truck-mounted 38-meter concrete pump. One of the signature items in this year’s auction, the pump features a new, robust rotec pedestal and streamlined side panels and outriggers.
