Kenworth team, Alliance Pumps unfold record CIM Auction donation

British Columbia-based Alliance Concrete Pumps, along with Kenworth Truck Co. and San Leandro, Calif. dealer NorCal Kenworth, are donating a T880-mounted, JXLZ 38-meter boom model for the 2022 CIM Auction, January 19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. With manufacturers’ suggested retail price north of $400,000, the vehicle becomes the biggest ticket donation in the Concrete Industry Management Program fundraiser’s 16-year history. 

“We are very appreciative of the support from Alliance Concrete Pumps, NorCal Kenworth and Kenworth Truck Company,” says CIM Auction Committee Chairman Ben Robuck. “Their support speaks volumes to their commitment to the industry and the importance [they] place on the CIM program. This truck-mounted concrete pump will help ensure a successful auction at the 2022 World of Concrete.”

“Alliance Concrete Pumps is excited to donate their most popular boom model,” adds CEO Clayton White. “We are also very proud to be part of procuring young and up-and-coming talent for the concrete industry.”

Next year’s auction follows customary World of Concrete day two scheduling, with Ritchie Bros. representatives overseeing silent (11 a.m.-1 p.m.) and live (1 p.m. and on) bidding. Auction proceeds benefit CIM undergraduate and graduate degree programs at Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro; New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark; Texas State University, San Marcos; California State University, Chico; and, South Dakota State University, Brookings, which has welcomed a charter class for the 2021-22 academic year.
