Since 1930, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has been a leading industry advocate inside the Beltway. Its stated mission is to provide value for members by representing and serving the industry through leadership, promotion, education and partnering to ensure that ready mixed is the building material of choice.
NRMCA represents ready mixed producers and allied businesses. Now approaching its eighth decade, the group has promoted ready mixed producer interests via tracking and influencing Washington’s impact on the industry, developing and implementing product enhancements and market strategies, plus offering employee-training programs.
NRMCA partners with state associations on issues such as promotion and regulatory concerns, extending their influence to a national level. The association also provides education, training, promotion, research, engineering, safety, environmental, technological, lobbying and regulatory programs to enhance industry profitability and professionalism.
NRMCA’s Engineering Division staff represents ready mixed concrete interests on industry specifying and standard-setting committees. Moreover, numerous NRMCA committees, e.g., Government Affairs, Operations, Environment and Safety, facilitate collaboration among members and professional staff.
