Solidia Technologies has enlisted Michigan-based Pathfinder Systems to deliver a customized Tiger Machine model for a dry-cast concrete production facility under construction at Alamo Junction in Elmendorf, Texas. Scheduled for a Q3 2024 start up, the operation will bring to commercial scale Solidia material and process developments in carbon dioxide utilization and emissions elimination.

Beyond supplying and installing product machinery and material handling equipment, Pathfinder Systems will work with its customer to create at Alamo Junction a hands-on training center spotlighting both parties’ methods and best practices. “Solidia’s commitment to innovation in both product development and execution aligns perfectly with our forward-thinking approach to service, customization, and quality, providing a tremendous opportunity to advance the field of concrete product manufacturing,” says Pathfinder President Larry Hilldore. “This is a true partnership between manufacturer and equipment provider that will benefit the entire manufacturing landscape, making these technologies accessible to other forward-thinkers to help lead the industry into the future.”

“The Alamo Junction plant will be a world-class facility in every way possible—not only because of our groundbreaking low-carbon manufacturing solutions but through the use of advanced production technology and collaborative partnerships with like-minded industry leaders,” adds Solidia Chief Operating Officer Brian Below. “The plant will provide a unique training ground for equipment operators and industry stakeholders to experience the latest manufacturing developments up close and personal.”
