Eyeing expanded market development of its portland cement-free, fly ash-based binding agents for high performance concrete, Ceratech has named Vance Pool vice president of Sales. He joins the company from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, where as a national resource director he managed South Central business development and field operations. The NRMCA tenure followed Blue Circle Cement, Fibermesh and Grace Construction Products tours of duty.

Pool is based in Texas, a key market for ready mixed producer and Ceratech equity investor Argos USA. “Ceratech has a game-changing technology and truly the first sustainable cement to be commercialized,” he says. “[Its] track record of successful placements on industrial and military projects with non-portland, bulk and packaged cements [is] unmatched by any competitor.” Ceratech’s fly ash and propriety liquid binder technology, he adds, nets a green and durable finished concrete especially suited to demanding chemical and high temperature markets.
