W.R. Grace & Co. has closed on the assets and associated entities of RS Solutions LLC, a West Chester, Ohio, developer of process control solutions for ready mixed concrete producers, including truck-mounted electro-mechanical devices and sensors. RS technologies measure concrete slump during delivery to job sites; they especially enable producers to monitor authorized or unauthorized addition of water—or other changes to the ready mixed as dispatched—that can compromise product quality or spur rejected loads.
