NSC raises record-breaking funds at auction

The National Steering Committee for the Concrete Industry Management program raised more than $617,750 at its seventh annual auction, held in conjunction with the World of Concrete on January 25.

“This is yet another example of the high value the concrete industry places on the CIM program,” said Eugene Martineau, executive director of the NSC. “The NSC appreciates the record number of 155 donated items and all the bidders that helped make this year’s auction a huge success.”

Danny Rodgers, president of MMC Materials, won the auction’s signature item: a Mack Truck model GU813 equipped with a McNeilus 11-cubic-yard concrete mixer. Mack Trucks and McNeilus, a division of Oshkosh Truck, donated the item.

“The money raised will benefit the National Steering Committee and support the current CIM program as well as help fund future program expansion,” Martineau explained.

In addition to the annual auction, the NSC also held a silent auction during which the committee sold items such as cement, a skid steer, concrete saws, drills, mixers, vibrators, scaffolding, safety equipment, screeds, fiber transport systems, dust collectors, NDT equipment, decorative concrete tools, water meters, pumps, generators, training sessions, reference books, advertisements, laptop computers, sports memorabilia, sports travel packages, golf school packages and vacation travel packages.
