U.S. Concrete, Inc., one of the nation's leading producers of ready-mixed concrete, has been selected as a winner in the Thirteenth Annual NRMCA ("National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association") / Concrete Products magazine Commitment to Environmental Excellence awards program. Among a record number of entries for the 2008 contest, the judges recognized the Company's Prosper, Texas ready-mixed plant operating in the Dallas/Fort Worth market, and its San Jose, California ready-mixed plant operating in the northern California market.
The NRMCA commended U.S. Concrete for making their plants outstanding examples of environmentally sound management for the ready-mixed concrete industry. There are more than 6,000 ready-mixed concrete plants in the nation and very few receive this distinguished award.
The Environmental Excellence awards will be presented at the NRMCA's annual ConcreteWorks Conference which is being held in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 18, 2008. The Environmental Excellence award winners will also be featured in an upcoming edition of Concrete Products magazine.
U.S. Concrete services the construction industry in several major markets in the United States through its two business segments: ready-mixed concrete and concrete-related products; and precast concrete. The Company has 134 fixed and nine portable ready-mixed concrete plants, eight precast concrete plants, one concrete block plant and seven producing aggregates facilities. During 2007 (including acquired volumes), these plant facilities produced approximately 7.5 million cubic yards of ready-mixed concrete, 2.7 million eight-inch equivalent block units and 3.8 million tons of aggregates.
