A November 5-8 bus tour the PCI Productivity Committee has themed “Productivity Improvement in Lean Times for Precast and Prestressed Producers” will spotlight six Colorado plants representing a broad architectural, structural and specialty product cross section.
The event will kick off with an evening reception at the Denver Airport Marriott at Gateway Center, followed by November 6-7 visits to Rocky Mountain Prestress architectural and structural plants, both Denver; EnCon Colorado (bridge), Denver; Rocla Concrete Tie, Pueblo; Stresson Corp. (architectural and structural), Colorado Springs; and, Plum Creek Structures (bridges). The Productivity Committee will hold a contest with cash prizes, “Ideas That Pay Off,” upon return to the hotel from the first day’s plant visits.
