Cemstone Recognized by National Ready Mixed Concrete Association for Commitment to Environmental Excellence

Cemstone is the Central Regional winner of the 2018 NRMCA Commitment to Environmental Excellence Award

Cemstone, the Upper Midwest’s leader in high performance concrete, decorative and pervious concrete, and engineering services, has been chosen as the Central Regional 1st-place winner in the 2018 National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards competition. The competition, for which Cemstone’s Minneapolis, Minn. facility received the award, is for the 16-state Central Region.

“Cemstone is committed to environmental stewardship, and that is demonstrated through the innovative rainwater harvesting system installed at the Minneapolis plant,” said Pat Bergin, Cemstone’s Environmental Manager. “The rainwater harvesting system, installed through a partnership with Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, allows rainwater to be used in place of potable water in the batching of new concrete.”

Through the Commitment to Environmental Excellence Awards competition, the NRMCA’s Safety, Environment, and Operations committee salutes companies that have not only met, but surpassed governmental compliance measures and demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through plant and staff investment. The competition was judged on 10 separate criteria that demonstrated the company’s commitment to the environment through innovative management.

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association was established in 1930 and operates through a partnership agreement with state associations. Its mission is to responsibly represent and serve the entire ready mixed concrete industry through leadership, promotion and education.

Founded in 1927, Cemstone operates ready-mix concrete plants in Minnesota, western Wisconsin, and northern Iowa. The company operates a fleet of blue Cemstone ready-mix trucks, offers a complete line of concrete pumping capabilities, aggregates, engineering services, and concrete block and masonry products used in the construction of concrete structures.
