CMC acquisition and WCCT partnership
In 2000, we acquired CMC out of Compton, California, founded in 1955. The company primarily designs and manufactures molds for concrete masonry and hardscape producers in the western US.
We also partnered with the World Center for Concrete Technology (WCCT), a premier facility for education, both in the classroom and hands-on, and for research and testing. The state-of-the-art production facility offers the ultimate in hands-on training as staff assists clients in the development, evaluation, and testing of alternative cementitious materials, waste streams, and other products for use in the concrete industry.
