The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has presented its Distinguished Achievement Award to the Maryland Ready Mix Concrete Association (MRMCA). MRMCA is a proactive trade association that represents every ready mixed concrete producer in Maryland in the areas of promotion, government relations, technical matters, training, and education.
The award is given to ACI nonmembers who have made notable contributions to the advancement of the concrete industry. Hensel Phelps was honored for providing leadership in the advancement of the sustainable use of concrete through innovation and efficient use of local resources.
MRMCA provides promotional support to help increase market share for concrete products on residential, commercial buildings, and paving projects. It provides the design community and building industry with the latest knowledge of new products and industry innovations.
MRMCA has a legislative voice to ensure that lawmakers understand the needs of the concrete industry. Recently, it introduced life-cycle cost legislation that would help transportation agencies select the best pavement alternatives.
