CIM Annual Auction at World of Concrete Shatters All Previous Records
The National Steering Committee (NSC) for the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program shattered all previous records at its annual auction, held in conjunction with World of Concrete on Wednesday, Jan. 18, by raising more than $2.1 million in gross revenue.
We thank the concrete industry for their tremendous support. In addition to a concrete mixer truck donated by Mack® Trucks, Inc. and McNeilus®, a truck-mounted concrete pump donated by Alliance Concrete Pumps and Papé Kenworth, a concrete mixer truck donated by Peterbilt Motors Company and Con-Tech Manufacturing, Inc., and an S-485 Laser Screed® donated by Somero Enterprises, we had a multitude of items targeted specifically for the concrete industry.
We also had record proceeds from the silent auction. Live and silent auction items included cement, fly ash, aggregate, concrete saws, drills, safety equipment, training sessions, reference books and software subscriptions, laptop computers, sports travel packages and golf and vacation travel packages and much more.
