The National Steering Committee (NSC) for the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program has announced that its 10th annual auction at World of Concrete 2015 raised over US$800 000. Both a live auction and a silent auction were held at the event, which took place in Las Vegas on 4 February. The silent auction generated record proceeds this year. A range of items were up for grabs, such as cement, flyash, concrete saws, mixers, safety equipment, dust collectors, training sessions and leisure packages.
“The NSC of the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program is pleased to report that the 2015 World of Concrete Auction was, once again, a huge success,” said Mike Philipps, CIM Auction Committee Chairman. “This auction is a great example of the high value the concrete industry places on the CIM program. We had a record in terms of the value of donated items and attendees at the auction that helped make this year’s event a tremendous success.”
“We were blessed to have the incredible support of the World of Concrete Show Management, Hanley Wood Publications and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers,” added CIM Marketing Committee Chairman, Brian Gallagher. “We thank the many companies such as McNeilus Companies, Inc., Mack Trucks, Inc., Somero Enterprises, and the numerous companies that donated items to the Auction to make it a complete success.”
