CRMCA Executive Director’s Blog

Hello CRMCA members.  Summer is moving quickly with the warm temperatures.  September and Labor Day are just ahead, and beyond that is the fall season.  I hope you are enjoying this great weather while you can.

Here is what is going on with your Ready Mixed Association.

  • Governmental Affairs
    • CONCRETE PAC Contributions: As we are in an election year, we are very active with the CONCRETE PAC.  It is not too late to contribute, and I urge everyone to contribute to the CONCRETE PAC that we have established. Companies and individuals can contribute up the $550 towards the PAC, which enables us to support candidates that support our industry.


Recent Events:

  • Mixer Truck Driver Championship.  Our inaugural Mixer Truck Driver Championship was a huge success.  The event took place on August 20 at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood.  Thirteen drivers competed overall with the competition consisting of a written test, driving skills and safety pre-check competition.  Congratulations to our winners,
      • 1st Place – Lenny Bemis with Action Ready Mix
      • 2nd Place – Talon Bow with Holcim South i.e. Transit Mix
      • 3rd Place – Sisto Ortega with Peak Ready Mix

Also, this would not have been possible without our generous sponsors, including:

  • Holcim (US) Inc. (Sponsor of the Food Truck!)
  • BURNCO Colorado
  • Mountain Cement Company
  • Brannan Companies
  • Con-Tech Manufacturing, Inc.
  • Cemex USA
  • Terex Advance
  • Transwest Trucks (Provided Stationary Trucks)

Lastly, thanks to our partners at NRMCA, and JT Mesite, who was in charge of the event.  Thanks and Great Work!


  • Upcoming Events:
    • NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks and PCA’s Fall Committee Meetings will be held at the Gaylord Hotel in Aurora September 29 – October 3 this year.  JT Mesite and I will be presenting on out CTAC program.  We are glad to be able to work with NRMCA and get the word out on our successful program.   Learn more about this valuable event or check out this video to see CRMCA’s promotion of the event!
    • The Annual Conference will take place December 6 – 7 at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. Look for details and registration soon.


Thanks, and I hope you’re enjoying your summer. Please reach out, if we can be of assistance.
