ACPA Honors 2018 Safe Operator of the Year

Safety is one of American Concrete Pumping Association’s (ACPA’s) highest priorities, and our goal is to foster a culture of safety at every level in the concrete pumping industry. Recognizing the finest examples of safety is one way we uphold our commitment to this mission. This year, we’re proud to name Bobby Blankenship as ACPA’s 2018 Safe Operator of the Year.

While the 1980s rock band Quiet Riot declared they were “born to rock,” we like to say our concrete pumpers are “born to pump.” Thus, “Born to Pump” was the motto for ACPA’s annual cocktail party kicking off World of Concrete. With a rollicking rock-and-roll theme, the party was held Tuesday, January 22 at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel.

Concrete Pumping Association of Canada Holds First Meetings Following Merger

At World of Concrete 2019, the Concrete Pumping Association of Canada first announced their intentions to merge with the American Concrete Pumping Association and operate as an ACPA chapter while retaining its CPAC name. The merger will allow CPAC to benefit from ACPA’s resources developed over the past 45 years while combining its own resources into a unified organization.

The initial meeting at WOC was met with positive feedback, according to Daryl Dika, CPAC co-founder and board member and stakeholder with Reach Construction Services.

What is the Value of Your Service?

Daily-operated concrete pumps are the most cost-effective way to place concrete for most applications. The time savings, labor savings, increased quality and improved safety are more valuable than the cost of a daily-operated concrete pump.
