Fox Blocks Announces Membership in the NRMCA

» by | Fox Blocks ICF Events | Thu, 10 November 2016

We are excited to announce that Fox Blocks is now a member of the National Ready Mix Concrete Association (NRMCA).

The NRMCA is the leading industry advocate; representing and serving the industry through leadership, promotion, and education with a goal of ensuring ready-mix concrete is the building material of choice.

The NRMCA was founded in 1930 and partners with state associations and works at a national level addressing regulatory concerns and other interests. Through communications from NRMCA, we will learn more about products, services, and programs available to help Fox Blocks expand our market and improve our operations.

Current government issues the NRMCA engages with include transportation and infrastructure, environment, labor, taxes, and resilient construction. Specific issues are related to long-term highway infrastructure funding, representation in regards to labor policy and the NLRB, as well as incentivizing stronger, more durable construction while increasing safety, reducing cost and environmental footprint.

As a principal sponsor of the  CONEXPO-CON/AGG, the NRMCA supports this international trade show for the construction industry. Held every three years, the next expo is March 7 – 11, 2017. The show brings together contractors, materials, and producers at the largest expo in the Western Hemisphere. With over 2-million square feet of exhibits, the concrete, aggregate, and ready-mix industry will showcase products and present live demonstrations.

As an industry leader in ICF, Fox Blocks is looking to our membership in the NRMCA as a means to further the interests of the industry while participating in the advancement of the industry through education, research, and concrete promotion programs.
