The Concrete Industry Management program auction, staged amid World of Concrete 2020 day two activities at the Las Vegas Convention Center, grossed more than $1.2 million from bidding on a Mack Granite-mounted McNeilus Bridgemaster mixer, Somero S-485 laser screed, Shumaker Load and Go truck wash system, Mahindra Automotive 2020 Roxor off road vehicle, and a host of smaller ticket product, material, equipment, and entertainment, sports or travel package offerings. 

“The 2020 World of Concrete Auction was our best ever,” affirms CIM Auction Committee Chairman Ben Robuck (Cemex USA). “This year’s auction was a tremendous success, both in terms of the value of donated items and number of attendees. The results are indicative of the high value the concrete industry places on the CIM program.”

Along with the biggest ticket items, notes CIM Marketing Committee Chairman Brian Gallagher, were cement and admixture donations from Argos, BASF, Cemex USA, Chryso, CarbonCure Technologies, Euclid Chemical, GCP Applied Technologies, LafargeHolcim, Lehigh Hanson, Martin Marietta, Roanoke Cement, Sika Corp. and St. Marys Cement. “Once again, we had incredible support from the World of Concrete show management, Informa and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers,” he adds. “We thank the many companies that donated items to the Auction to make it a complete success.”
