Cemstone, an upper Midwest’s leader in high performance concrete, has been chosen as a recipient in the 2017 National Ready Mixed Concrete Association Excellence in Quality Awards competition. This is the seventh year Cemstone has received the NRMCA’s Producer Excellence in Quality award.

According to a press release, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s Producer Excellence in Quality Award recognizes the commitment to quality initiatives of ready mixed concrete producer members.

A significant barrier to performance specifications versus prescription specifications for concrete, has been the qualification level of a concrete producer. The award provides a basis to recognize those that strive for continuous improvement through their quality initiatives. It provides reasonable goals for those concrete producers interested in elevating their own quality management systems.
