Schwing Continues Association Sponsorships

Schwing took a leadership position in 2019 with major sponsorships of leading associations that serve the concrete pumping industry. These include the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) Annual Conference held in September at the Westin Chicago in Ithaca, Illinois; the ASCC Concrete Leadership Forum (CELF) held in July in North Key Largo, Florida; and the Concrete Foundation Association’s Annual Convention in Denver, also held in July.

“These sponsorships provide long-term growth for our industry and our company,” explains Tom O’Malley, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Schwing. “In addition to continuing education for our customers through technical seminars, these gatherings develop long-lasting relationships that benefit all parties.”

The ASCC is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of those who build with concrete, and providing them with a unified voice in the construction industry. It works to bring together contractors and concrete industry professionals for the improvement and betterment of the concrete industry.

CELF regulars continually report that a major benefit of the experience is the relationships they build during the program. Participants learn that they are not alone in the challenges they face both personally and professionally, and regular attendees become part of an ongoing group that continues the lifelong learning process and provides support to one another.

The CFA’s Concrete Foundations Convention is the largest gathering dedicated to the cast in place concrete foundations industry. Each year, the Convention brings together the top professional concrete contractors working in the residential, light commercial, agricultural and other related industries.

“2019 was a great opportunity to show our support to these fine organizations,” said O’Malley. “Many of those in attendance know us as their equipment manufacturer; our sponsorship is a chance to show them we are more than just that.”
